40 yard dash is most important in my training, so I’ll do certain drills to get my start down. On certain days, I’ll do heavy weight for power and other days I’ll do CrossFit and small weights just for muscle memory.

On the side, I will have the track coach at my school help me with technique with all running phases and opening my hips.

Willing to play anywhere and everywhere on the field. Always give 110% in anything I do. I am the type of player that will make the person across from me better throughout the season. Most important, God first in anything and all things I do.
