Wade was on Bernie's radio show--

He seems like a good kid.... I really like him.
I asked him what inspired him as a kid...
he said church and family. Said he believes in praying, and in listening to older, wiser people and what they have to say.

But he's really confident ... not in a look-at-me way. It's under the surface, but definitely there.

However, on the field he can be a firebrand... he says at Tennessee one thing he always tried to do was fire other players up.

Also, not on the air, but later he said it was a thrill for him to check out the Rams locker room, and see the nameplates, and all the awards won by individual players. He paid special attention to the Bruce and Holt lockers; said it motivates him.
