Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
It depends on the situation. For punters, it’s different because you’re more so watching yourself and your steps along with the result of the punt. I’d say overall I focus on my technique.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
My mindset. I can’t speak for the pros but I don’t get nervous or uneasy in stressful situations. As specialists, we’re always in high pressure situations. Those are the situations I look forward to the most.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My off-season training is done in Denver, Colorado. OneonOne kicking has a division out there so there’s a couple of us out in Colorado working on our craft and spending hours in the weight room.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Consistency on and off the field. I think the good parts about ourselves can only be good if they’re consistent. Also, maturity.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
I take my job seriously and do it at a very high level no matter the conditions or other obstacles there might be, I’ll always find a way.
