Smart, consistent, playmaker.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
This offseason, I will make the most of every day by training, lifting weights, and conditioning my body so that I will be in the best possible shape. I will also prepare by making sure I put the right things in my body so I can be healthy.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I am studying film, the first thing I look for are the small flaws or errors that I have in my game. After critiquing myself, I go on to look at the defense of the oppose team(s). When I’m doing that, I start by looking at the D-line, then the Linebackers, and lastly the secondary. While I’m watching these positions, I look for any keys that may benefit me or any give-away signs that makes it easier to recognize what they are going to do before they do them.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
The thing that separates me from other players at my position is my arm strength, my poised demeanor, and my dual threat ability.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
My strength and abilities that I will bring to a team will be my leadership skills (on & off the field), and my abilities to improvise and make negative plays into positive plays.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Give me a chance to prove you wrong before you think I can’t get the job done!
