TCSR: Could you talk about being Colgate’s 3-time MVP of the time while you were there?

TCSR: Could you talk about playing Arena Football with 5 different teams?

TCSR: What did it mean to you to be the 2007 Offensive Player of the Year?
RV: “We had a great team with Wilkes-Barre (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers). We fell short of winning the championship, but I would have liked to win the game than being named MVP.”
TCSR: Why did you chose to sign with the Philadelphia Soul as a free agent?
RV: “Coach (Mike) Hohensee is a great coach and I wanted to play for him. The Soul are a great organization with passionate fans. Philadelphia is very passionate about their sports teams.”
