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

When watching myself I focuses largely on my technique. I look at my hands and my feet first. I look to see if I’m using the proper steps dependent upon the type of play and the scheme. I look to see if my hand placement is good; if they’re inside of the defender or not and if they’re too high on their shoulder pads. I also look to see if my pad level is proper and if I’m finishing my blocks. When I watch my opponent I look at how they play their opponents and their tendencies, I also study their opponents feet, hand placement, and pad level as well.

If you decide to take a chance on me you won’t regret making that investment.
