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

One of the goals I did accomplish was having the best hands on the team. I completed that goal with only one drop this year and another goal I had was to average over 10 ypc and I did that with 16.1 ypc. Since switching from DB to WR my freshman year I took the goal to have the best hands on the team, very serious. I also had a career high with having a very unhealthy year.

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

I’m one those players with a great attitude and fun to be around. I always look to keep the good vibes within the team and keep us drama free. They would also say I’m not the one to lead vocally but show it through hard work.

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

I like to focus on the DB’s tendencies plus the motions of the safeties. I feel that it is most important to study both to make it easier to figure out the coverages. And based on that coverage it will determine how I run that route.

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

All I need is a chance. There have been set backs in my career but I don’t let them define me, I keep my head high and keep it moving forward. I’m the one to never quit and never give up until I get something right and on that field, If I don’t win a rep I will come back on the next rep like my life depended on it. I don’t look to just make my self better I always look to make my teammates better.

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

My plan is to attend CFL tryouts and maybe some IFL opportunities. If there are any other professional teams (XFL) that are having tryouts I will attend them as well. Plus I plan to email coaches with my film.

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 speed, quickness, hands, IQ, flexibility. Not only am I just fast, quick and can catch, but I am able to learn other positions like slot or any other skill position. I am able to move all over the field if needed. Off the field I like to be the person that keeps the team together and be the one people can go to if they need anything.

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

Just need a chance if a team is willing to do that I will not let you down. Even if it’s a practice squad spot I will do my absolute best to make the team better in anyway possible.
