Q: In your final collegiate season, what goals did you accomplish this fall or set for this upcoming spring?
Due to the pandemic, my final collegiate season was canceled. My upcoming goals for this spring are to finish off my last semester in school, receiving my degree in communications and training for pro day. Attacking the process everyday with hard work.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
A leader, also a consistent worker who will do anything and everything to get the job done. A team player who encourages the team when facing adversity. A knack for the game of football.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
What personnel the offense is in. It could be 12 personnel or 11 it all depends on how many running backs and tight ends that are in the game. Then I see if me and my backers and safeties are on the same page as well because communication is the key. I focus on if I am in the right position as far as being inside or outside my man (receiver) in man coverage depending on where the ball is.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
Trusting the process with faith, guidance, strength and courage. Having a dog mentality while having a short term memory on a busted play. My work ethic, the ability to strive for greatness and having a positive mindset when obstacles occur.
Q: What is your plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities, especially with the virus limiting pro days/training facilities/etc?
Staying safe and following the right protocols to make sure I am safe and my peers first and foremost. Working out daily and having discipline towards myself mentally and physically to get ready for the next level wherever god leads me.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Being a team player. Doing whatever I can to make my teammates better by giving it my all during practice giving it 110% and encouraging them off the field whenever they face adversity.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL/CFL or any other professional leagues?
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” I will seek every opportunity that emerges my way with an industrious mindset.
