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

Making All-Conference in the Sun-Bet. Having 3 or more sacks. Being a dominant player offenses have to worry about. Finishing my Third semester of grad school with a 3.0 or higher GPA.

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

I believe they would say I am a Team player. I truly care for everyone and want each teammate and person involved in the organization to be successful. Things that go on and off the field just being a positive light to anyone and everyone I can.

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

For myself, I pay attention to plays where I did well to critique myself to see that next level I can reach, but also of course the plays where I didn’t do well and learn from my mistakes. Going from there I watch guys who have similar body style as me such as Aaron Donald and Grady Jarrett to see their play style and how I can use it for my play. There are also the little details I focus on for my opponent. Any tendencies I can pick up or just the movements of an offensive lineman helps my game.

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

I believe what separates me on the field is my effort and the way I work to get to where I need to be, it’s not comparable. Off the field, I am able to have influence on my community, staff members, and even fans to shed a positive impact.

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

I will be training just like normal in Boston to prepare for everything that comes my way in this time. Will have to plan accordingly to things as they happen. Bowl games such as The Tropical Bowl and Hula Bowl will be a big help for me.

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

Strengths and abilities include my instincts and nose for the football. I use to play linebacker up until college. So this helps with my versatility, quickness, or twitch when playing defensive line. I have the ability to play outside from a 9 technique down to a 2i whether thats run or pass.

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

To any organization that’s going to give me an opportunity of a lifetime you are getting a determined and motivated player on and off the field. Willing to be put in any position to give a chance for the organization to Win a Super Bowl.
