My off-season plans is to continue training with my trainer and sending my film to scouts and just going on from there.

Some strengths and abilities I bring to the field on and off the field is leadership, being able to be well coached and lead by example.

Also I am good at picking up tendencies from an offense in film and I’m always asking questions.
