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

We had some returning seniors and also many new players that came in, the goal was to all come together and win the conference championship. We won the eastern side of the conference but fell short in the championship. I know that team success will ultimately bring individual success so individuality wasn’t my biggest focus. We could have accomplished more but I’m proud of the team we had.

Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?

It was an opportunity to put more on tape, which will speak for itself. I feel that I was blessed with an opportunity to play another year and take advantage of making even more plays this season. I had a chance to compete in the Spiral Tropical Bowl, where I had an excellent week. That opportunity may or may not have came last year but was another opportunity I took full advantage of in front of 30/32 NFL teams, along with CFL and USFL scouts in attendance.

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

My coaches and teammates would describe me as one of, if not the most hardworking and dedicated player that they have been around. A playmaker with ability to change the game. My head coach described me as the most likable/popular athlete around the campus, this speaks volume of not only the type of man I am on the field but also off the field. I take pride in being a great man all around.

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

One area I can improve is not being as hard on myself, I am my biggest critic. Just challenging myself more to make every play that comes my way.

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

My work ethic will ultimately separate me, which comes second to none, there’s not another prospect that will be more prepared for the opportunity than I am. My IQ, instincts, along with film study puts me ahead of my opponents. Versatility separates me from other prospects as well. I’ve played every position in the secondary including, corner, nickel, strong and free safety. I take pride in my role on special teams and look to change the game in that phase as well. I’ve excelled at each position, again, I had the opportunity to display that throughout my career as well as the Tropical Bowl.

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

I’ll be training with Corey Taylor at Corey Taylor Sports Performance in Louisville, Kentucky. I’ll be represented by Done Deal Sports Management.

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

I’m a versatile defensive back with lockdown ability, I matchup well against multiple body types and playstyles. This means I can play any position in the secondary. I make big plays on defense as well as special teams. Being in multiple systems, I’ve shown that I’m able to obtain information within the system, schemes, and playbook quickly. I am a leader, vocally and most definitely by example. I hold the people around me accountable and expect the same from them. I’m a sponge, ready to soak up all the knowledge from my future coaches and veteran teammates. I’ve been extremely active off the field from being a life mentor for the youth (Athletes on a Mission) to Jesus Prom for special needs and many more in between. My goal is to be an All-Pro and to win the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.

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

Since before I was born, I’ve always been the underdog. From complications at birth to trying out twice at Western Kentucky, to becoming an All-Conference selection. I’ve defined all odds and it will be the same at the next level. I’ve put my heart and soul in this game, I wouldn’t be this far if it wasn’t for the love of the game. I’m a versatile playmaker that can play all over the field and impact the special teams phase as well. I’m a great man off the field who takes pride in leading by example for the youth and others trying to find their purpose in life. Playing in the NFL has been my dream since I was 2 years old.
