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

Lead my team, put my best stuff on film, win a major award (Harlon Hill Award Nominee), get invited to bowl games (FCS bowl and HBCU Pigskin), waiting on the legacy bowl praying I get in.

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

He’s a hard worker he plays extremely hard. He is a leader on the field and off. Very coachable and humble.

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

I look for a lot of tendencies within different situations like: 1. Watch one full play through of the game. Play by to understand flow of the game. When a team is up on the scoreboard how do they play? Do they play fast? Do they run the clock? Are they taking big shots down the field? 2. What are their top formations? Are they a heavy run or pass team? 3.Go back and watch 1st down/drive openers. Create an understanding of what a team is trying to do to create momentum on drives. 4. What do teams like to do on 2nd down when they get a positive gain? Hurry back to the LOS, run the ball after a complete? Run the ball again? Go quick passing game? 5. Break down and watch 3rd down plays, 3&1-3(short), 3&4-6(medium), 3&7+(long) create a breakdown of what teams like to do in those situations. Run/Pass. What type of run plays and passing concepts? 6. What does a team like to call in the red zone? 7. Watch plays after turnover. Does the offensive try to take a big shot? 8. Watch their top plays and situations they like to call them?

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

I feel like my IQ separates me from every linebacker in the draft and the way I can process plays and situations which make me faster during actual games.

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

I have a trainer and speed specialist I’m looking at, then I’m trying to lose 10-15 pounds.

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

On the field, just being coachable and my ability to learn information quickly and instincts. Off the field, being a leader by leading by example and not getting in to trouble.

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

I might not be the tallest LB, the fastest (getting there), but I’m the guy that is going to effect your team positively on and off the field, very coachable, and when I get between them lines, I will make plays.
