My coaches say that I’m a freak of nature and my team says that I’m a super big skill because no matter the size I am very agile and I am very versatile.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I focus on improving the little thing like what steps I could take better, how my position is during and what move would have been better to make. I also watch my opponent to see where they did well at and dissect it to become better against others that are alike.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I am very versatile, I played both ways in college in one season and I was successful and I only played defense two seasons out of high school and college. My fist time playing offense was in college.
Q: What is your plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities, especially with the virus limiting pro days/training facilities/etc?
I plan to go train with my track coach in Kansas. He is the track coach for Bethany College. He holds a world record for running backwards. His studies show that backwards training is just as good if not better the forward training

What I can bring is leadership, as well solid game of play that can affect the game that we play. Because of my versatility, I can play wherever they put me.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL/CFL or any other professional leagues?
I am a leader figure and every coach I play for could vouch for that. The coaches will tell you I’m a tireless worker, as well as a reliable ball player. I can bring a team close and make a big difference with my game and leadership. I am a very community oriented person as well, so this will bring a lot of interest to the team.
