Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and teammates would say that I am a team player. Always willing to learn and determined to work. Capable of compromising and listening to the needs of my teammates to get us on the same page.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I study film first thing I study is the defensive coordinator and what defenses do they like to run in different situations. In addition to that, I also study the pre and post-snap looks they give. On the individual side I look at the little tendencies of the DB (more comfortable playing: Press or Off, Inside leverage or outside, aggressive or conservative). How much passion does he play with and does he play the WHOLE game? (when it’s 4th and 1 and everyone is in the stadium knows we are running the ball, what is he doing After those things I study myself and other top level WRs to add to my game.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from the other pro prospects at my position is how I can play like a small WR and get through small spaces as well as play as a big WR and use my body to go up, get the ball and take a hit. I make sure to always work on doing the little things correctly which will lead to even greater results on and off the field. I can also bring methods, previous experience, and emotional maturity to the game.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My offseason plan to train for the professional opportunities that will present themselves is to train my body at XVXIII Performance and Uberzati in Melbourne, FL. I also plan to stay disciplined in the other aspects of my life as my journey transfers to the field.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
On the field I am a player that plays with a lot work ethic and energy that is contagious. I am reliable, responsible and capable of playing 100% the WHOLE game. I’m not scared to put my nose in and get physical. I am dedicated to my position and will make the contributions needed when it comes to team efforts whether it’s making the big play or helping someone else to get the opportunity to make a play on and off the field. Off the field I am a man that stands on my morals and values. I can adapt and adjust in any situation. I’m also great at understanding others and communicating which can be very effective when everyone needs to be on one accord to surpass certain goals.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
One thing that I live by is everything happens for a reason, and I believe that everything that has happened to me previously has prepared me for this journey that I am very hungry to pursue. With this in mind, I am ready to work and earn everything. All I need is an opportunity and the rest will speak for itself.
