Michael Strahan hosts plenty of shows these days — “Good Morning America,” “$100,000 Pyramid” and now USA TODAY’s High School Sports Awards,which he will co-host alongside Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski. 

The USA TODAY High School Sports Awards will premiere on Aug. 5.

Strahan discussed a variety of topics with USA TODAY Sports, ranging from advice, to his clothing line, to his media responsibilities and to the current state of the New York Giants. 

Questions and answers have been edited and condensed for clarity.
