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

Going into my senior season I had a lot of team goals and individual goals on my mind. As I team I wanted to win the OAC, beat Mount Union and John Carroll. Unfortunately, we did not accomplish any of those but we fought hard and played well in both games and finished 3rd in the OAC. Individually, I wanted to lead the team in touchdown receptions for the second straight year, and I wanted to score a TD and have at least 1 catch in every game because I felt that that would make our teams chances of winning very high. I had 2+ catches in every game and scored in 6 out of the 10 games.

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

I think that my coaches would say that I am probably one of the smartest players that they have coached. I am almost like a coach on the field because I know where everyone should be and what each players’ assignment are. I have a very high football IQ and I think that my coaches would attest to that. My teammates would say that I am a leader and that when it comes time to be competitive I am one of the most competitive players. I don’t back down in big moments and I love going against the best of the best. I love a challenge whether it be during practice or a game.

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

I like to focus on my effort and seeing if I am in the right place and where I am supposed to be. You can teach a WR how to block or where to place their feet and even how to run the correct route, but you can’t teach a player how to give effort and you can’t force them to know where they are supposed to be, so if I can focus on trying to improve my effort and my knowledge, then I am coachable enough to be able to improve my route running, blocking, etc.

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

I believe that I have some of the best hands and can catch any ball that is thrown my way. I also have a very high football IQ and am a smart player. I also know that I will outwork the other prospects and that when my name gets called, I will be more that willing to do what it takes to make a team and I will be more than ready.

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

I am currently working with a professional trainer here in Ohio and I am going to be 3 times a week to work on my speed, agility, and explosiveness. My trainer Justin, is the cousin of one of the best professional athlete trainers in the country, John Opfer, so he knows everything and is getting me in the best physical shape that I can be in.

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

I am a very good teammate and the people that I have played with will 100% agree with that statement. I want to win no matter what and I will do anything for the team. My size and my ability to high point the football and use my basketball and lacrosse background to help me succeed in football is one of my best strengths. Being able to play 3 sports in high school and 2 sports in college has helped me maintain peak physical shape. Off the field I am an outgoing individual and I am a very good person. I am the kind of person that teams will not have to worry about “babysitting” me and making sure that I am staying focused and doing the right thing.

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

I am a player that will come to your team and be one of the hardest workers. I am very smart and know the game of football very well. I have great size and speed and my hands and ability to high point the football are second to none. You will never have to worry about off the field issues and if you give me just one shot you won’t regret it.
