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

A goal I had off the field was to graduate with my degree which I did in December of 2021. A goal I had on the field was to quicken my footwork, and after analyzing my film, I know I achieved that goal.

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

They would say I am a hard working tough, intelligent, selfless, committed, dependable, and accountable player.

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

When I am looking at the defense we are playing during a certain week, I will look and see where the movement foot is and if the defender is cheated over in his alignment to see if he is going to move gaps. I use film as an opportunity to mentally prepare myself for games and practice to make sure I do my job effectively. 

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

My work ethic is unmatched on the field, as well as the time I put in getting to know the playbook. As a result, I can learn and implement different schemes quickly. 

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

I am training in Fort Myers, FL at X3.

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

The strengths and abilities I will bring to a team are hard work, accountability, time management, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving. My strength and physicality, especially in run blocking, would be an asset to any team. 

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

I am a player that you can depend on to be on time for everything. Teams can also believe I will give my best effort to their program.
