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

As a 5th year I wanted to help as many of the younger guys out as I could. A goal of mine was to help our team out in anyway, whether that’s on the field or off the field. I wanted to flip the field and put our defense in good position, while on the other hand put points on the board to help the team out. I was able to accomplish specialist of the year by touchdown club of Richmond, 1st team all region kicker, 3rd team all region punter, as well as 2nd team All-American kicker.

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

Taking advantage of playing another year was a huge opportunity to show and prove what I can do. It gave me another year to help with get off speed and overall timing. I think I was able to further perfect my craft.

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

My coaches and players would say that I am a hard worker who pushes not only myself but others around me. They would say I’m very coachable and always trying to improve. Lastly, they would say I’m very reliable.

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

When watching film, I am constantly looking at the little changes that needs to be corrected. From the misses and balls that weren’t hit the best. Also, taking note of balls that were hit well and emulating them.

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

What separates me is my drive to become the best player and person I can be to help the team. I would also say my consistency separates me from other prospects.

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

My off-season plans include attending different camps and work with different kicking coaches to help better my craft. Also, continuing to get stronger.

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

I would bring to any team, a consistent and reliable kicker. My work ethic has made me the person I am today and bringing that to galvanize others. I would bring to a locker room someone that is a team player that puts others before myself, doing anything to help the team win.

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

My final pitch to any team is to just give me an opportunity to show you the player and person I am. I think I can make the team better on and off the field.
