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

My goal for this season was to win a conference championship. Also to become a better overall football player and teammate than the years prior and always make strides in my game.

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

My coaches and teammates would say I’m always a team first guy. I always want to do what’s best for the team no matter what the circumstance is. And I will do whatever it takes to win, I’m a winner.

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

When studying film, I like to watch the opposing opponents’ tendency. What’s their strengths and weakness. I also like to watch other WR to maybe pick stuff up from them that works or didn’t work. And when watching myself, I like to always watch myself harshly and nitpick every little thing.

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

I don’t focus on other prospects really. So I’m not sure what separates us. I’m just focusing on myself right now and trying to get the best version of that out because once that happens, there’s no stopping.

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

I’m playing in The FCS Tropical Bowl in Daytona. I’m also playing in the CGS game in Texas in January. And I’ll be training in Florida most likely for my pro day.

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

Strengths I’ll bring to a team is my savviness for the game. I sleep and breath football. I’m always looking to improve and I’m a fierce competitor who knows he can play with the best, just need the chance to show it.

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

My final pitch to a professional team is I’m a football player, this is my life, I was born to play ball and destined for this. Forget all the other stuff, I’m a ball player and I won’t stop until I make it.
