What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?

Biggest goal was to come back and prove I can still play after a season ending ACL injury. I came back and showed what I am about in how I attacked and recovered this injury.

Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?

I took advantage by once again showing I can deal with any obstacle in my way. I wish I would’ve had more chances to show during the season as I dealt with a few nagging injuries but I showed how what I am made of and that after having a great career, could come back and produce.

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

They would say I’m one of the hardest workers in the building and the toughest person around. No moment is too big and there’s nothing I cannot overcome. My teammates love me and I’ve had tremendous relationships with so many amazing people throughout my career.

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

Personally, I always like to study any bad habits I may have or may be consistently repeating to try and work on fixing it. I trust my technique and like to play with a free and open mind, which comes from trusting yourself to perform the basics.

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

Toughness, physicality, mental toughness, technique, ability to perform under pressure, heart, passion, and love for the game.

Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?

I am using resources I’ve used my whole career to make me successful as well as adding some other key factors to continually improve myself every day. My team at FASST is first and foremost and I will be pairing other methods and recovery with that including PT with my cousin Travis and rehab at other locations.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

My strengths of being liked in the locker room and caring about my teammates has always been a big part of who I am. The locker room is my family and that is exactly how I want everyone to feel around me. On top of that, I want to be a guy that can be relied on when it’s time for war. When the bullets are flying, I want people to look to me and trust me.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?

I have been overlooked, under recruited, looked down upon and doubted my entire career and have done nothing but produce at the highest level. It will not change as I’ve showed improvement every year of my life and that will continue. If you take a shot on me, I strongly believe in loyalty and there will be no one more loyal than me. All it takes is one shot and I will show what I am made of every day, on and off the field. I have much more left to give the game and can’t wait to see where I end up!
