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

Student Athletes above 3.0 awards and Dean’s List.

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

My coaches would say I am coachable, a team leader, and physical because I never shy from contact.

I focus mainly on my feet. I believe slow feet don’t help the game and I try to make sure I’m taking my right steps and making them count.

I can play it all. I started a college game at every position on the offensive line except for center since my sophomore year.

I will be working on my core, feet, and explosiveness with my trainer.

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

I can bring the hype, the leadership, and more work activities to help team bonding. I listen and catch on quickly, the terminology may be different, but I am good at catching on and doing what I am coached to do.

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

I’m no Micheal Oher but, going through so many ups and downs, I really just want a chance to show everyone what I can do and I promise I will not let you down.
