Q: What goals did you accomplish heading into your final collegiate season?

Making it through the season healthy and put my team in the best possible situations to win on the defensive and Special Teams part of the ball. Making All-CIAA was a big part also that showed the world what I can do!

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

Flying Missile, because of my ability to run from sideline to sideline!

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

My reads from Guards, and my steps on how I read plays. The way the QB’s feet are set and what type of plays they run on certain downs and situations. The stance of the linemen and splits of the receivers. I was taught to pay attention to details like your technique.

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

My heart for the game, if I feel like you are in the way of me being the best, I’m going to show you that I’m better than you. It’s a dawg eat dawg world out here and I refuse to come up short for anyone! I’m willing to do whatever so my family can eat even if it’s taking food from your plate.

Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?

Get my body in the best possible shape, work on eating habits, the amount of sleep I get at night. I have to sacrifice to be able to be the best. I’m going to take it one day at a time and hopefully a scout like what they say and bless me with the opportunity of a life time.

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

Speed and athleticism. I’m starting to learn more about the game so once my brain fully functions on certain things that I pick up from watching and learning from others, it is going to be a problem, because I want to master the game mentally.

Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

People dream for this opportunity, but I want to be the one that actually does it and not be the one in years to come to say “I should have done this better or I should have took this route”. I’m coming harder than ever this off-season and I hope to impress multiple scouts!
