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

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

When I study film I first look at my last game to look at what I did wrong, weather if I took the wrong step, or if I had any hand misplacement.

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

On the field I bring a great attitude, focused, and also a hard worker on and off the field. I will always look for ways to get better even if it’s one of my rest days and I make sure I have one vision only and that’s to be as great as I can at what I do.
