School: Middle Tennessee State
Q: What goals did you accomplish heading into your final collegiate season?
The goals I have accomplished are competing for a conference championship and became a better receiving back.
Q: What would your coaches say about the type of player you are?
My coaches would say I am a hard working player that will do anything to help the team win.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
While watching film I mainly focus on trying to identify what keys the linebackers are reading and also focus on the right zone and power steps to time up the run.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
What separates me from the other players is that I played both sides of the ball so I am more aware of what the defense is trying to do.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I will maintain a great diet and challenge my body every day while making sure I give it the proper rest.
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 I will bring tremendous competition and a hard nose running style and off the field I will be a leader and role model to the community with no off the field issues.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
You will get a guy that will be more than a great football player, someone who will go the extra mile to help my team win at all cost.
