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

I had set a goal of earning All-Conference honors, which was definitely my biggest individual goal. Which I earned First Team All-Conference.

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

We were able to hold practices while our 2020 season had been canceled, which helped me tremendously as a player working on techniques and ways to utilize all the tools I have to be successful on the field. Also spent that time working with our strength and conditioning coach while practicing to improve in all aspects of the weight room. I think this year was crucial for me as in 2019 I had earned no All-Conference honors, then to the 2021 season, I was seen as one of the best offensive linemen in the conference.

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

Great teammate, physical, plays with an edge, sets the tone, finishes, hard worker.

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

I focus a lot on the small details. Whether it’s of me or the other team. For me, if I don’t have a good play I can usually attribute it to a small detail, whether it be a step, or something like hand placement. So I like to focus on those things. When studying a defense, I like to look for their tendencies to figure out when a pressure or slant/stunt from the defensive line. If I can pick up on a slight change in their technique or alignment, it can be huge for what I think is coming. That allows me to play with confidence and do my job.

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

I am very versatile and good with understanding of schemes. Playing guard, I preformed nearly every blocking technique. I can pull very well, whether it be a trap, wrap on power, or getting out on the edge lead blocking. You can count on me to get my job done and getting the better of my 1 on 1 matchup. I also can play center, I played center for a half of a game my junior and often took center reps at practice.

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

Train with the hopes of getting a bowl game invite. Be able to play higher competition and prove I can compete.

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

I am mentally strong, whether things are going my way or not, I can push through the adversity and perform without being thrown off of my game.

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

I can play multiple positions on the offensive line, I have played more than just guard in both games and practice. I will always do whatever the team needs and give 100% to my role.
