Work as hard as I can to develop my body, improve my footwork, and continue to clean up my mechanics and accuracy.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
I look for consistencies in defensive techniques, alignments, and tells against various looks. Defenses always give away certain things pre-snap that tell the story of how they are trying to defend each offensive look, I look for those tells on film so I can confidently approach the line of scrimmage looking for the same things.

I believe I prepare mentally to set myself apart from other Quarterbacks. I come into every game prepared, which allows me to use my physical skills at a higher level and play with confidence.

I believe my passion for the game and my competitive drive on the field carries over off the field as well. My love and respect for the game influences how I prepare, how I interact and treat my teammates and coaches, and how I play the game.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
My passion for the game and competitive drive are what separates me from other Quarterbacks. I believe I have the physical abilities as a passer to compete at the next level and also believe I have a mentality of constant improvement and preparation that will allow me to be a positive asset to an organization.
