Physical, Tough, Competitive.

Any tendencies that the defensive line does across the board from specific moves to how they line up and I also watch for how hard they work.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
My knowledge of the game creates the ability to adapt and learn whatever it is that I need to do. I believe I’m extremely physical and provide a presence to the offensive line, I also think that I’m versatile and can be a swing tackle and guard in the NFL. I can also snap.

I have a strong sense of passion and love for the game of football. I can bring that same energy to any team. I am competitive and love working with teammates towards one goal and that goal is always championships. Off the field, I believe that I am a high character, kind guy who cares about people and community.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I would say all I need is an opportunity, my journey to this point has been filled with ups and downs, but I’m ready to be a great teammate and ready to continue to grow physically and mentally. I would also say don’t miss the boat.
