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

The goals that I accomplished were to finish the season healthy and to continue to help my team win games. My biggest goal was to be there for my team and go as hard as I could every play. I wanted to be a thousand yard rusher and become an all-american.

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

They would say I come to work everyday focused and ready to go. They would say I am a team player, work hard everyday, have a great attitude, high football IQ and I can bring some energy when needed.

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

The things I look at during film are my technique, my footwork, and I look at the things I could have done better. For example, if I take off for the hand off from the quarterback before the quarterback has the ball, things like that are what I look at all the time. Or just missing my reads when I’m running the ball or having a bad blocking technique.

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

My vision, patience, and my ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. My knowledge of the game and the love and passion for the game is different from many.

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

Consistency is very key for me. But just getting stronger, faster, and improving my knowledge of the game. Getting better everyday anyway I can is my main focus.

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

My ability to make plays on the field. I am a great team player with a good attitude. Off the field I will cause no problems and will represent the team as well as I can.

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

I know the game of football and I can play this game as well as anybody. My goal is to become great and I want to win multiple championships. I love this game and whoever takes a chance on me will get nothing but the best out of me each and every day. I come to work and that is a promise.
