Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
John: While studying film, I’m reading DL splits and stances because most of the time they show what they’re doing before it’s even going to happen. I also like watching to see what’s a guy’s favorite move and counter move.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?

Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
John: God has already blessed me beyond measures with the game of football. My natural abilities will always show through regardless of coaching or what division I played in. I can compete with the best. I’ve had the best as teammates while at Henderson State. I have a knack for winning and playing hard nose football. Regardless of what’s forthcoming I’m already grateful.
