BV: You were a California kid who played under the bright spotlight at USC in L.A. Which do you prefer - the big-city life or a smaller, quieter place like Charlotte?
RK: There's a place for both. The thing I love about Charlotte is that it's a little slower pace and people are just so incredible and open and welcoming. Guys I've come to know in Charlotte in a short period of time would take their shirts off their back for me if I asked. I don't want to say people in California are rude, but you don't get that in California. Everyone is a busybody, everybody has their own thing and own path, and in Charlotte, everyone is a lot more about helping the community out.
