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

A goal that I set was to make sure I was a leader on and off the field. I made sure that if I needed to come off the field for any reason the next guy was ready! Also I was playing Nose-guard, so I wanted to show that I was still able to be mobile and elusive in that position!

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

That I am a leader who cares about the well being of the other people around him. Someone who will give everything he has on the field because he trusts that the guy next to him will do the same

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

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

I believe what will separate me from others is my ability to be quick on and off the line. Also my work ethic. When I find a flaw in my game I focus on that aspect and improve!

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

I go through a rigorous day in and out workout regimen. Also I run to stay in shape and make sure I am eating properly and not indulging in unhealthy foods!

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

Great leader, great teammate. On the field I am a student of the game. Great effort in practice. Great attention to detail. During games the effort is extremely high. I have made many tackles that I should not have made and had great persuit. Sure tackler and very quick and explosive. Communicates well with coaches and teammates during games and is very coachable. Off the field I bring all those qualities plus more! I am committed to building a community among my teammates!

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

I know I might not be the tallest player on the field at all times, but my spirit and passion rises above many! I am a student to the game and I know what it takes to win! I bring leadership, education, talent to whatever team. I am a team player and do what it takes to win! I will never give up on my brothers or my coaches I will go to war for anyone that will give me a chance!
