Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Chris: When I am watching film on an opponent, I focus on many things. First, I study the guy who will be trying to defend me. Whether he is aggressive or patient?

Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Chris: Whether drafted or undrafted/free agent it doesn’t matter. I will give everything I have in my body to make the best of every opportunity put in front of me. I have been playing this game since I was 4 years old and I have been told no my whole life, but I never let that stop me. It’s bigger than football, this game has changed my life forever and as long as I’m breathing I will continue to inspire others that you can do anything you put your mind to despite what anyone says, as long as you have faith in God!
