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

The goals I set out was to obtain another MAC championship and also continue to get better in my game as much as possible. Film room, on field, technique, etc.

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

I believe it was another year to get better at my craft. No one is ever a perfect player and a lot of hours is needed to be the best you can be. Another year playing in a new scheme opposed to my old university made me a better student of the game and player overall.

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

They would say I have a great work ethic, respected, and reliable. I would do whatever is best for the team to win and play any role that I am assigned to the best of my ability.

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

I am looking at every detail. Starting with my stance. Is it consistent? Am I changing it up when I know it’s pass vs. run. How far or close I am from the line of scrimmage? How did my get off look? Is my alignment giving me the best chance to win my rep? So much more gets looked at. As far as my opponents just knowing what personnel they have out there. Knowing their favorite runs out of each personal. Looking at the OL in front of me seeing their tendencies. Tendencies are important and can be subtle. Seeing if I can dictate by an OL stance if it’s run or pass. That’s brief synopsis of some things I key in on to put my team in a position to win.

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

My versatility and experience is what separates me from everyone else. Playing college for 6 years at 2 different universities makes me different. I started at 2 different universities and won conference championships at each one. My adaptability to different schemes and schools is not something everyone can do. My first university (Sacred Heart) I played strictly DE at 6’4 255-260 pounds. At Ball State I played nose, DT, and DE showing versatility in that sense. I was playing at Ball State my first year at 280 and my second year there at 290. Being able to adapt my body to different schemes / situations shows my willingness to help my team win no matter what I have to do.

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

I am currently training at Exceed Sports Performence in MA with Sean Smith and Shane Davenport for pro day.

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

I will bring leadership. I was in a leadership role at two different universities. Was a team captain at Sacred Heart and was put onto leadership council at Ball State. Will be a coachable player. I want to get better and always striving too. Will bring an optimistic approach to the task at hand. Respect for my coaches and teammates. Position Versatility as well. Great character that will have ZERO off the field issues.

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

Very experienced player who has never been sidelined with any major injuries. I am your guy that will do whatever it takes and play the role I am given. Going to come in there and prove that I belong. Will give you a reason why I should be apart of your organization.
