What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
A goal I set was to become first team all conference but I got second team all conference.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
I took advantage of the extra year by gaining weight, increasing strength while maintaining my speed. I never missed a practice or weight lifting on top of starting 41 games in a row.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and teammates would say I am always a team player and very reliable as I never missed a game in my four years.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
When I watch film I look at tendencies for other teams/players. When I watch film on myself I look to get better at one thing every day and perfect my craft as much as I can.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from other prospects is how coachable I can be. I also thrive in competition and hate losing more than anyone. At the end of the day the main goal is get the win.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My off-season training will include a diet and weight program to keep getting bigger.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
My strengths for the team is I am very hard working. People will be more motivated to get better when I am around them. I will push my teammates to their best ability and I hope to receive the same thing from them. Off the field I am an easy person to talk to if you are ever struggling with something outside of football. I love helping people no matter the scenario.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
My final pitch to professional teams is to take a chance on me. On paper I may not look like the best player but my film, love for the game, and hard work I know I can achieve anything I put my mind to. I am a true winner and will do anything I must do to get to the top.
