Q: In your final collegiate season, what goals did you accomplish this fall or set for this upcoming spring?

A goal this season was to win conference and make it to the playoffs with my team.

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

My coaches and teammates would say I’m passionate about the game of football. I love the game so much that I study offense and defensive film.

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

When studying film, I focus on improving my pass protection and being able to recognize the defense that the other team is in.

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

What separates me is that I’m a small back who can beat you with speed and run in between the tackles being 205.

Q: What is your plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities, especially with the virus limiting pro days/training facilities/etc?

My plan is to train at a place close to home until I find an agent with the virus being here still. I’m just locked in on bettering myself as a person and football player.

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

Things that will stand out is I love winning no matter how it’s done, if we win my 2 points I’m going to be happy. People around play better because of the energy and passion that I bring to the game. Off the field, I’m a chill down to earth guy who cares about being a good person to others.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL/CFL or any other professional leagues?

My final pitch is that I will make the most of my opportunity and whoever gives me a shot won’t regret it. I’m hungry and I want to compete and win.
