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

I wanted to improve from my past year achievements. That was to get better than an honorable mention.  My other goal was not to give up a sack. I met both my goals by not giving up any sacks and getting third-team all-conference. 

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

My coaches and teammates would say I’m a hard worker and do whatever it takes to get the job done. They would also say that I am a team-first type of guy, who cares more about the team than individual stats. 

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

When I watch film I like to watch my feet for footwork to make sure my technique is there. I also watch what my opponents do and what their tendencies are. 

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

I’m a very quick learner I can learn new offense pretty fast. I enjoy learning new things. I am also willing to do anything to win. 

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

I am training with a gym in St. Joseph Missouri called B-Fit with Brad Durham. 

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

I am a very class act type of person, and I only want to do things that can make my family and people I represent proud. I am a very competitive person and hate losing more than winning. 

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

I think you should take a chance on me because I will push myself past my limits to do whatever I can for my team. All while doing this to represent my team, myself, and my family in a respectable manner.
