Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
My goal headed into my senior season was being the best leader that I could and leading my team to a Conference championship. Individual goal was to perform good enough to be invited to a Senior bowl All-Star game.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Heart, Competitive, Fearless.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I have been training at my school in preparation for my pro day April 4th. Speed and explosiveness are what I’m focusing on to improve the most, as well as adding more muscle. Training with the Track coach as well to work on technique to run a Great 40.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When studying for film, I look for tendencies in Linebackers, D-Line, all the way to Safeties. Linebacker stances, where their feet are aligned, hands and everything, paying attention to small details, strengths and weaknesses, to get the best advantage over my opponents.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I believe what separates me from other at my position is my grit and love for the game. As well as my low center of gravity with pad level and being able to slip off tacklers and the ability to create mismatches outside of the box when catching passes.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I will bring tremendous character to the team on and off the field. The ultimate teammate putting the team before myself and using my personality to inspire others.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I have been told my whole life I was too small, not strong or fast enough, you name it. I have never given up always have been a true competitor and warrior. I am in the business for proving my doubters wrong. A team someday will be getting a high character football player that will do any and all things to help lead his team to success. I will never settle and refuse to be outworked. Giving me an opportunity is a decision that a professional team will not regret.
