12 questions with LB Kamu Grugier-Hill | Drew's Dozen

1) DD: What's the deal with this picture of you and an octopus?
Grugier-Hill: My brother is a professional spearfisherman for like the last 20 years. Anything in the water, he's getting it all. We'll just be at the beach and he'll just randomly grab an octopus or grab whatever. We'll be at the beach, and he'll be like, 'I'm going to go grab some fish,' and he'll be back in like 30 minutes with all this fish.

2) DD: Not to make this interview about your brother, but I'm very intrigued now. Does he bring his own spear with him?
Grugier-Hill: Oh, yeah. He has it all. It's a whole deal.

3) DD: What sort of damage, if any, could this octopus have done to you?
Grugier-Hill: No, nothing. It just sucks onto your back.
