Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
Help lead the team to a conference championship, make 1st team All-Conference, and defensive MVP.
Numbers wise, I wrote down for myself:
-3+ forced fumbles
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Smart: knowing what the opposing team is going to do before they do it.
Tough: I’m willing to run through a brick wall at any time while I’m on the field. Whatever I have to do to make a play for my time I will do it.
Fast: I am not the biggest on the field, so speed is my weapon. You can’t block what you cannot touch and I’m always trying to be first to the ball.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Training at Per4orm in Davie, taking care of my body and being a sponge to learn as much as possible.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Player tendencies, for example stance and splits. Plays a team like in certain down and distances. Also, the top players and their strengths.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I’m very fast and physical. I’m a dog! When I’m on defense, I don’t even want to give up a yard to the opposing team.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Good character, work ethic, and talent. I have never had any off the field issues and I view myself as a playmaker and someone who never ever quits.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I’m an underdog. As an underdog, they never see you coming, but when I arrive my presence is always felt! I have a hustler mentality on the field, my work ethic is second to none, and my mindset is always to dominate the man in front of me. I’m a player NFL teams can count on!
