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

My goal was to do anything possible to help our team be successful, I also finished with 1st Team All Conference Running Back, and 1st Team All Conference Athlete.

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

I took advantage of this extra year by getting bigger and faster than I’ve ever been, studying different defenses, learning to read the holes more efficiently, changing my style of game.

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

My coaches and teammates would honestly say that I’m the funniest person in the entire school ha, I’m a great leader, I lead by example, working hard 24/7, never slacking when it’s business on the line. I’m very versatile, I can play Running Back and Slot, and make incredible plays all over the field, anything to put our team in a better position.

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

When watching film, first I scan to see what kind of defense the opposing team is running, to see what can we attack them with. I scan every player on the defense to see their playing style, so that I know when it comes to a 1on1 match up, I automatically know what are their weaknesses.

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

What separates me is that I bring different flavors to the field, I can pretty much do it all, as the complete back should do. I can switch from a Running Back to a slot in no time, anything to make plays, I’m that guy. When asked what are my weaknesses, I say I don’t have any, because I’m steady perfecting that craft, aiming to be the best that I can be.

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

My off-season plan is currently training at a sports performance gym out here in Louisiana, and also doing my own workouts on top of that also, staying with a strict diet to maintain between 200-205lbs, perfecting my craft in all angles in my position. I’m also attending 2 football camps that I’ve been invited to, one in March, the other one in May.

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

The strengths that I will bring is my athleticism. I’m very versatile on offense and special teams. I can change my game quick and adjust to and defense we go against. I love a challenge and most of all I love to make plays and have fun with my teammates.

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

To the NFL and other Pro Leagues, any team that takes a chance with me on their team, will get a great steal, all I ever needed was a chance to get my foot in the door, and now it’s that time.
