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

The goals that were accomplished throughout my final collegiate season were quite astonishing. Although there weren’t many accomplished, I am still proud of a successful senior season. I knew I could produce more for myself and for my team but I controlled what I could control when my number was called. 
-1,000 yards or more
-100 yards a game 
-10 plus touchdowns 
-10 or less dropped passes 

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

My coaches and teammates would say I am the type of teammate that loves to win. I am natural born leader that loves the taste of success. I am very dedicated and passionate to what I do and do not get bothered by adversity. 

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

When studying film, I focus on my opponents to improve my game. I can’t really watch my highlights knowing I still have a game to play. I really pay attention to my opponents every move, such as tendencies and game play styles. I look at the rotations of my opponents, their alignments in zone and in man, depth to all coverages and when in the red zone, their strengths and weaknesses, whether they are physical or not, their angles, and how they tackle. I go into deep study when scouting my opponents to make sure that I am on top of my game. 

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

What separates me from other pro prospects would be my IQ, situation and my preparation. Playing WR is not the only position on the field I could play. I could play any position on both sides of the ball, as well as playing on special teams. Along with me putting up 1,000 plus yards, I know if I were in a better situation where I would be competing with more elite athletes, I would produce better statistics and still be ranked nationally. The situation I was in, I adapted and controlled what I could control and still had a successful season. That is what separates me from other pro prospects. 

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

My offseason plan to prepare for my professional opportunities are to improve my body type, speed, strength, and IQ, making me a dominant WR all around.

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

The strengths and abilities that I will bring to a team that stands out will be my work ethic, my character, and my production.

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

My final pitch to the NFL or any other pro teams would be letting them know that their time will not be wasted. I am very coachable and open minded. As well as playing WR, I can play anywhere on the field; specials teams, DB, LB, QB, and RB. I am a football player and I love competing amongst the best.
