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

I was named a William V. Campbell Finalist. Led my team to the third consecutive undefeated regular season. I was named an All-American for the third straight season. I was named conference player of the year for the third straight season. I broke the program touchdown record, completion percentage record, and eclipsed 10,000 career yards passing. Was also named COSIDA Academic All-American for the second straight season.

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

I took that time to grow mentally and physically. I wanted to show maturity in the way that I controlled the game through efficiency. Physically I got faster and stronger making me a more dynamic dual threat. I increased my short to mid yardage accuracy as well.

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

My coaches and teammates would describe me as a leader of the team on and off the field. They would say I am hard working, disciplined, selfless and hold strong integrity. They would also say I play with passion and a student of the game who is always looking to get better.

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

When it comes to preparing for game week, I like to look at tendencies of defense and what gives away each coverage. This could be through safety movement, corner leverage, or linebacker blitzes, etc. I also like to see blitz tendencies to help me know adjustments in the pass protection for each week. I also tend to look at what areas in the defense can be targeted as a weakness as we go into game planning. When looking into my own film breakdown, I tend to go through my reads as I would on the field to help me see progressions for a second time. 

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

What separates me the most is my background. The path that I decided to take is unconventional. Coming from a small school shows that I’m not afraid of a challenge. My willingness to continue to learn no matter the role I’m in sets me apart. As you can see in my tape, I have the ability to extend plays when the pocket breaks down and I also bring a playmaker ability to the quarterback position that not everyone has. With that being said, I can also make every throw on the field.

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

I will be training at the D1 facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. There I will be going through combine training, position training, and strength training. I will be utilizing these resources to get myself in the best shape I have ever been athletically.

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 a skill set of a true football player that can be utilized in multiple positions. Off the field the organization will be getting someone who is holding themselves to the highest standard in all aspects of life. I will step right in and be a leader with how I carry out my business each day.

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

Give me a chance to showcase my ability. I have proven the ability to take programs to the next level when given that opportunity. I know that I can make an impact day one.
