"A self-professed huge fan of Peyton Manning growing up, Lawson was excited to tour the same campus where the All-Pro quarterback once attended college. But it was another experience, immediately following seeing Manning on video, that seemingly held Lawson captive during his Tennessee official.
'It was awesome to be able to visit a place where your idol went,' Lawson said. 'The best part about the visit was being able to watch so much film. I watched some of Peyton Manning, and I do not know much about quarterbacks, but then they told me they had all of the film throughout the years, and I went nuts. I ended up staying longer than I was supposed to. They had all of the best defensive linemen, and the best 3-4 pass rushers throughout all of the years on over 10 monitors, and I would watch pass rush film on Jason Babin, Trent Cole, Demarcus Ware, and I was already ecstatic. It was crazy just watching Dwight Freeney, Lawrence Taylor, Reggie White, Derrick Thomas broken down on film with all of their moves dissected. My favorite movie of all time has to be Dark Knight, and this was like that times two.'"
