Before the season many goals were set i wanted to catch every that was thrown my way and I did that. I also wanted all-conference I got that as well, I scored more than 5 touchdowns which I had my junior year. This year I had a career high with 8 TD’s and I also had a career high with 976 receiving yards. I honestly just wanted to beat all my numbers from junior season and I pretty much doubled everything.

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

I think I took advantage by just putting in all the extra work with the extra time that was giving. This extra time allowed me to get bigger, faster, and stronger helping me put up career highs in all areas of my game. It also allowed me to reach out, connect and work with great people like you guys.

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

I’m pretty confident that my teammates and coaches would say that I am a hard worker, reliable, consistent, great person, leader, competitive, and someone who is going to give it 110% all the time.

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

When watching film you always want to watch what you did wrong and what you can improve on. You should also look into who’s going to be in front of you and their tendencies. You also want to know what coverages the team like to run so we can attack the zones. You also want to know what kind of blitz the team like to run so when they do it you automatically know where and how to attack it.

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

What separates me is that I am going to give 110% always I am consistent, reliable and I’m going to what it takes to help me and everybody else that’s around me.

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

Keep lifting and working in all the areas that will be need to be seen at a pro-day 40s, bench, L drill, 10 yard shuttles, vertical and broad jump.

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

You would get an all-around WR but Instantly you will see I am a deep threat and a great receiver that can make a people miss after the catch. Off the field I am a fun person to be around and I’m always committed to getting better and helping the people around me whether it’s teammates or the people in the community.

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

All I need is an opportunity until then I will keep working hard.
