Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
My one goal was for our team to make the playoffs and get the chance at a national championship. We made it into the playoffs but lost first round to Nicholls State.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and teammates would say that I am an extremely hard worker and lead by example. I am the same person everyday and am constantly improving upon myself as a person and a player.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I watch myself and teammates to see what works and what doesn’t. A lot of it comes down to minor improvements in how to run a route with body positioning and gives me something new to work on.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
My work ethic and ability to use my body. I have always had a no days off mentality. I am always improving my skill set. As a big receiver I know I won’t blow by everyone so I have learned how to really use my body while running routes to get open.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I was training at ETS in Woodbury, MN before the coronavirus. I am now working out in Albuquerque, NM and am doing everything I can to keep getting better.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I have a large catch radius and play physically. I have high character and the ability to positively impact the people around me.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL/CFL or any other pro leagues?
All I need is the opportunity. Once I get that I know I will prove myself.
