Goals of mine were to help my team win our 5th conference championship in a row, and to help give our head coach a winning season in his first year as a head coach and make it back to the national championship game, and to do whatever I could to get a chance at the next level. Unfortunately my season was cut short do to injury and we lost first round of the playoffs, but we did have a winning season and won our conference and I was lucky enough to be invited and play in the HBCU SPIRIT OF AMERICA BOWL and now to the national scouting combine.
