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

In my final season I wanted to win our MAC conference championship and any bowl that we were selected to play in. We fell short of those goals this year as a team. Some personal accomplishments for myself this year would be winning team MVP and winning the Chicago Bears Mental Toughness Award.

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 player who shows up to work daily, someone who brings high energy, and someone who is very knowledgeable about the game of football.

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

When watching film, I try to nitpick all of my weaknesses that are exploited on game film and even practice film. This allows me a chance to go out and improve on the things that I could do better to help my team be successful.

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

What separates me from other pro prospects would be my versatility. I can play in the box as a run fitter if needed, or I can play high as a middle of the field defender. I also have the ability to cover slots man to man in critical situations. I can also fully understand my job while helping others to get aligned as well. Lastly, my clear and concise communication allows me to set the defense without any mishaps.

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

I will be in Indianapolis training with my position coach and Pace Fitness Academy.

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

Some strengths that I would bring to an organization would be great presentation of what that specific organization stands for. Not only on the football field but in the community where the youth has a vital need for positive guidance and encouragement.

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

I am a consistent player who will come to work every day to find ways to improve myself in every phase of my game in order to help my to be successful. I will also be a great person to be around outside of the football facilities.
