When studying film I like to really watch the defense and the secondary specifically, look for read keys, give aways, and tips to give me a slight advantage.

Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?

What separates me is my versatility, my ability to make plays from any aspect of the game, whether it be returning, catching, rushing, throwing, or even a big play on special teams I’m all about making an impact on any part of the field.

Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?

During the off-season, I’ll do more studying of my own game, learning myself more to better my game, watching catches to the tuck, top of the routes, more releases, and a ton of running.

Strengths and abilities I bring to a team are again versatility, a guy all over the field and not just a one trick pony. Also a guy who’s willing to be wherever and make plays no matter the situation. Great hands, can take the top off, and will block in the run game. Off the field, I’m a family oriented guy, a graduate, and would like to be an example in my community. I want the youth where I’m from to know you can always live out your dream no matter where or what you come from. Whatever the dream it’s possible if you’re willing to put the work in.

My final pitch to the NFL or any pro scouts would be, you’re getting a work horse who loves the game, who isn’t coming in expecting handouts and is ready to earn his stripes. I’m excited to go to work and ready to make plays anywhere on the field.
