Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
Hello Gridiron Crew, I appreciate you all for having me apart of this segment. This season just to get back on the field and finish out what I started was the biggest goal accomplished this past season. Also, learning the new offense in a rapid pace so that I was ready to compete Week 1. Lastly, another goal I had was to come in and help the team get wins and have a shot at the National Championship.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
I know my guys would say that I am a guy who always put his team and the program before his self. Also, that I am a hard worker and always looking to do extra to make sure I am sharp on Saturdays. They will say that I take care of my business off the field, and handle business on the field. Lastly, I know they will say he is a winner, and will compete and help his teammates raise their level of play because of the standard that is set!
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I am watching film to critique myself, I tend to watch the plays that I feel like I didn’t execute the best first before watching the highlight plays. Reason for that is so that I can really focus instead of just clicking through film looking for the the Touchdown plays.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from all of the other Quarterbacks coming out this class is my ability to play the position at an elite level, while not turning over the ball. I am an Elite passer and can make any throw the Pro scouts want to see. I am a winner on and off the field, and will do whatever it takes to make sure that the organization, fans, and teammates know that by my work ethic and production.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
Currently, I am training at my school facilities with the athletic strength team. Also, I will be training with a few trainers in the Dallas area when I go home for Spring Break.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
I am an elite QB and will do the right things off the field. I have a total of 10,668 Passing yards with only 20 take aways. I am very efficient with my legs as well as I finished my collegiate career with 1,851 rushing yards with 29 touchdowns. I am able to make any pass and I am ready to prove that!
