I had three goals. My goals were make it to a bowl game, be voted team captain, and achieve All-Conference honors.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Consistent, technical, and powerful.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I am training with a former teammate in Kansas.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
I focus on my footwork and hips first, then I begin to pay attention to my hand placement. Everything starts with technique.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I finish every play and I do not take plays off. I pride myself on giving maximum effort.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
You won’t have to ever worry about me not getting the job done. I am durable, so I will be a guy you can always count on.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
All I need is a shot and I will make the most of it. Don’t let my height factor into a decision, because I can play with the best of them.
