A passionate player that players with a lot of emotion, a hard worker, a leader that leads with his actions more than his words.

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

When studying practice film, I focus on the details of things such as depth, how fast am I getting in and out of my breaks, is my body language representing that of a leader and am I being a good teammate. For games, I study my opponents strengths and weakness and I attempt to simulate the match ups I may have, watching every rep as if I was going against them.

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

I don’t have to learn how to take care of my body, I am very meticulous when it comes to my nutrition, and my recovery. Everybody says they work hard, I won’t make such a claim, I’d rather show you.

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

The plan has been to network and get myself around the best prospects in the country to be able to compete and test my limits everyday with people that may be just as talented as me or even better. Competition is one of the most important aspects of the game in my eyes, so I plan to compete everyday.

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

The level of focus that I bring to football has been my strength my whole career. I rarely get distracted and my only focus is winning championships every season. I understand that the mental side of the game is just as important as the physical side; If not more.

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

Every challenge that has been put in front of me I have taken head on and over came it. And thats on the field and off the field. The transition to a professional is the next challenge up and I have been preparing for this one my whole life. Let’s work.
