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

Very passionate, hard working, determined player to be great as well as increasing the standard to those around him!

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

I look for tendencies on certain downs from “key players”. How they move, actions before the snap, and any gestures that may hint at the offensive play called.

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

I can play 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th down from DE, DT, and LB. In intense passing situations, I can be a valuable asset in rushing the QB as well as dropping out in coverage if not spying on the QB from LB depth.

Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?

I will find a performance specialist to invest time in with intentions to work on the minor components, vital to optimizing my testing skills for pro day and team workouts.

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

I’m a leader. I love to motivate others and establish a ground that makes teammates feel loved, but push my teammates to compete and give their all in every aspect of the game. Off the field, I’m very approachable and take pride in uplifting others, even if only includes me lending a voice to a friend to use in the time of need.

Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

Most teams desire a hard working and dedicated player. I consider myself that individual. If I don’t know something, then I’ll learn it! If I’m good at something, I’ll keep working until I’m great at it. Giving my all is a lifestyle and not something that needs to be enforced vocally. I’m focused on what I want in life and love to compete. In football games or life, I don’t lose. I either win or learn.
