If you missed the chat, no need to fret as we've taken the liberty to transcribe it for you. We would once again like to thank Larry for coming on and answering all of the questions he did. We wish him the best of luck this season.

Q: What goals do you have for yourself?LH: Double digit sacks and eventually become a starter.( alot of hard work though lol)
Q: What is something that surprised you about the Jags?
Q: What is your favorite memory at Central Arkansas?
LH: My favorite Memory will have to be my whole junior year..because it was so many close games and guys just kept battling and battling and we ended up have a really special year and winning the conference.
LH: My advice is to the guys is stay together no matter what..keep sawing the wood whether good or bad..another good rule of thumb keep God first!
LH: Yes, I am going to have rookie cards
LH: I did not have any major injuries in college and i didn't miss any games. Actually I didn't miss any games in highschool. ( Knock on wood!!!!)
Q: Are you a tape watcher type who studies lot of film?
LH: I am a tape watcher..but I have to step my game up because Mr. Kampman puts me too shame lol.
Q: What’s your impressions so far from D-line coach Joe Cullen (he is a new coach in theJack Del Rio’s staff; so he is a bit of new for us fans too)?
LH: Joe Cullen is intense. But the reason I respect him so much is because he is intense all the time. He loves the game and he is extremely intelligent.
Q: What is your first impressions of Jack Del Rio? How much time is he involved with the defensive line? How does he spend his time with that unit compared to LBers and DBs?
LH: Coach Del Rio is a tough as nails but at the same time he’s laid back..he rarely yells. He is a great coach and im excited to play for him. From what I can tell he spends alot of his time with the defense with the LB’s and DB’s.
Q: Welcome to the Jags! Just wanted to give you a heads up…Sack the QB and you will be a GOD in Jacksonville…Giddy up!
LH: Thanks I appreciate the welcome man. That is my goal is too sack the Qb. I will tell you what coach Cullen said in practice just the other day: " If we get 50 sacks and I drop dead the next day.. I will die a happy man" Of course hopefully that doesnt happen!
Q:How much contact did you have with the Jaguars prior to the draft?
