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

My final collegiate season was cut short due to a shoulder injury which I ended up having to get surgery on.

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

I feel my coaches and teammates would say that I’m a player who leads by example. I’m not the vocal type so I let my game do the talking for me.

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

When watching film I tend to look at the tendencies of the players in the secondary. I see what their strengths and weaknesses are to give myself an advantage since I am a smaller player.

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

I would say my God given talent and my ability to manipulate defenses. Like I said before I’m a smaller player so I feel I can spread the field and get into the tight windows easier.

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

To just grind and watch film and learn. Just stay on the field, track, and in the weight room as much as possible.

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

My speed and IQ would be my strengths. I love to learn new things. Rather it be learning the soft spots in a defense, or finding a fault in a player I’m going up against. My speed, quickness and hands will speak for itself.

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

I feel that I am a versatile receiver. I will go get the jump ball, dive out for the catches, and just make plays on the field. I also love to do the small things right, blocking for my teammates or getting someone else open knowing I’m not getting the ball. Football is a team sport so me being on the practice squad, special teams or anything like that would make me happy. Whatever I need to do for the team to be successful, I will make it happen.
