Q: In your final collegiate season, what goals did you accomplish this fall or set for this upcoming spring?

I set out a few goals, a team goal I wanted for us was to win conference. But due to Covid many games were canceled. Individual goals were leading all of NAIA in interceptions. I wasn’t able to reach that because I ended up hurting my ankle, so I decided to opt out for the rest of the season for other opportunities such as pro days and bowl games.

Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?

They would say that I’m unselfish, reliable, and hardworking. I’m a player who is coachable and can be counted on at all times.

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

I’m always looking for the little things. What stands out the most. How a player comes and lines up or what movements they make at pre snap. These are things that help me throughout the game, knowing what could be coming next.

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

I’m a player that’s always listening and taking in knowledge no matter who it’s from. I’m humble and most importantly I have Jesus on my side.

Q: What is your plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities, especially with the virus limiting pro days/training facilities/etc?

I have been training with my trainer daily at the local gym. And I’m blessed to have a pro day next month at Pitt State.

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 my attitude and energy alone. My natural GOD given talent is what will stand out. My ability to to make plays and takeover games. Off the field just being able to keep people focused and motivated. I’m a person who brings light no matter my situation.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL/CFL or any other professional leagues?

A lot of guys have the same response to this question. Just know that If you need a player to do whatever it takes, I’m the guy for it. I’m not about the talking, just put me in the pads and I will show you what GOD can do!
