Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?

The goals I set when I transferred into the program was to obviously win, I knew I was coming in with a couple bounce backs and we would have a really talented group. I also wanted to break all the single season passing records. In 8 games recorded I didn’t play multiple halves due to blowouts I ended 3rd all time in yards with (2,697) and 2nd in touchdowns with (23). I also wanted to be an all conference player which I was.

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

I believe my coaches and teammates would say I’m a player they love to have around. Someone who they can look towards for help or questions but also know when I jump them it’s nothing personal and vice versa. I believe they would say I’m an ultimate competitor and gamer.

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

My main focus while watching film is seeing timing on my throws whether I’m late or not. And also making sure what I saw on film as far as coverages goes is what I thought it was in person. Playing qb is such a bang bang position I always want to make sure I don’t waste any movements or reps.

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

I believe what separates me is the road I traveled. I always feel like I’m the best player in the room. As a competitor I believe you have to. I will outwork those more talented just to prove myself.

Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?

I have been training at several locations with Creatin monsters in Irwindale CA justin is an amazing trainer who is also the head of rehabilitation for the Jordan brand. As well as A3 in my home of Bakersfield Ryan Beckwith is someone who I’ve been working with for several years and is the best in the business in town as far as strength and conditioning is concerned. Also plan on training with my former QB coach at Bakersfield college and current Edmonton QB Logan Kilgore.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

Strengths I bring that would allow me to benefit a team on the field would be my accuracy. I have the ability to put the ball wherever I feel it needs to be. If you watch my tape you can also see I’m able to make some tough throws deep comebacks and outs as well. Off the field I think my personality allows me to have a great relationship with my teammates being able to build that chemistry needed on the field.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?

My final remark would be that I’m ready to work and ready to play. It’s not a risk because I’ve put my all into this. They won’t be disappointed.
