Most definitely a hard worker, Competitor, funny, respectful, just wants to win.

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

When watching film I try to figure out ever little detail my opponent does, what’s he like in Zone, Man, Can he run? Is he good at press bail? Or is he a press type of guy. I go so far back I want to know his parents name, his girlfriends name, siblings name. I want to know where’s he from. And it will be a plus if I knew what type of car he drives.

Off the field I want to give back to the people who’ve helped me get to where I am in life. I want to help all the kids over the world to peruse themselves to be the best man/woman they can be. The reason why I say man/women and not athlete is because everyone is not going to a professional athlete and everyone is not going to be in the NFL but what they will grow into is young men and women, and I want to help them be the best. On the field I’m going to figure out my role on the team and do it to the day I die. I want to win Super Bowls, and eventually become one of the greatest.
