Q: What goals did you accomplish heading into your final collegiate season?

Q: What would your coaches say about the type of player you are?

I’m hard working and driven to succeed, I’ll never let the guys around me settle and I am very competitive

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?

Little details such as how many steps I take in and out of my routes, I watch how many steps the DB takes according to the drop of the QB and I watch to see a DB’s tendencies on down and distance.

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

I work to perfect a craft such as route running I’m going to run every route the same way that way the defender won’t know what I’m doing or when I am doing it. 

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

I’m training at Rise&Grind with my trainer coach Smith 5 days a week. We work on all the necessary skills to prepare for any combine or tryout.

Always being helpful, I want to see everyone around me eat as I eat. That way we can push each other to become better day in and day out.

Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

Everyday is another opportunity to show I belong, it’s like a bank you get out what you put in. Given the chance I will show that I’m supposed to be along side the rest of the players in the league!
