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

A few of my goals I set for my senior season was taking helping my team take extra step to having a bowl game or get into the playoffs. Unfortunately, my team fell short of these goal by being a few wins away from the playoffs or a bowl game.

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

They would say I was a great football player, but an even better person. Both on and off the field I was able to make connections with all my teammates and coaches that will last for lifetimes.

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

I mainly focus on the little errors I make as well as other people so I can correct them. I also focus on the opponents defensive techniques, I watch players foot placement during read steps, Linebacker drops in the pass game and any tendencies players have that can give away stunts and coverages.

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

Aside from my versatility, my preparation for seasons & games separates me from others. I rehabilitate my body non stop so I am in the best condition possible to play, train relentlessly everyday in the off-season & in season, and mentally I prepare for games vigorously through film studying and meditation.

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

I plan to resume intense training in the beginning of 2020. Therefor, I am prepared for any pro-days or combines that present themselves in the new year.

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

The effort I give during everything is nothing short than my maximal effort. My work ethic never fluctuates no matter the task. From doing team drills to being on scout/practice team, I will always give my best effort to help better the team. Off the field I am a committed teammate, I focus on building relationships and trust with my teammates off the field, so on the field we have even stronger bonds.

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

I’m always working to improve & I am never satisfied. You will receive a player that will always put the team goals first, and does whatever it takes to win games.
