Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
The individual goals I set was to get bigger, faster, and stronger heading into my senior season. What I was able to accomplish was making first team all conference, making an all region team and breaking the record for having the most consecutive starts by an offensive lineman in North Carolina Wesleyan history. As a team, we went 6-4, our first winning season since 2010. Although we had high expectations as a team, we were unable to make the playoffs. I feel like I have made great memories here at NC Wesleyan and we have grown as a team. This season was very fun and playing with this team made me realize that this was one of the best group of guys I’ve ever had a chance to go play football with.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My teammates and coaches would describe me as a physical, dominant, blue collar worker. A humble and selfless player, I believe that actions are better than words so I let my play do the talking. I was able to be a key contributor to this football team which allowed me the opportunity to be a great leader on and off the field.
