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

I feel like I accomplished a lot, for example, I stayed healthy for the whole season which helped me and the team as well. Only gave up one sack on the season and even though our record wasn’t what we wanted, we still grew as team and pushed the team for a brighter future!

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

I listen, learn, and just work!

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

I focus on my footwork and staying lower to the ground longer and making sure I am in the right position to make the block.

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

I feel like I am very dominant with my hands because once I grab your pads inside, you will not be going nowhere!

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

I will be training at a facility called Xceleration sports training. They work with me every day on my strength, flexibility, and my speed, so I could be more dominant on the field.

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

I will bring my explosive ability on the field, I am quick learner, I am always willing learn something new and get better on and off the field. I also have a great personality!

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

I have a great passion for this game and I’m willing to give all I got to this game. I will definitely take care of business on and off the field. I am always trying to get better and will always come in ready to work harder than the next man.
