Watching film, I focus on if the lineman have a tell to the run/pass aspect. Then I watch the receiver’s releases and how they break down their routes.

I feel like I bring that energy to the games others don’t bring. I’m passionate about this sport and it shows when I play. I’m coachable when coaches correct me, I try not to make the same mistake twice. I watch film a lot. That’s always a plus when being on the field because you can always be a step ahead of your opponent’s offense by knowing their final formation, motions, and routes.
