This season, my main goal was to help our team to a conference championship and to have a shot at the national playoffs. Unfortunately, we were not able to achieve those goals as a team, but had great efforts all season. Personally, I set goals to make the All-Conference and All-American teams. I was fortunate to be named 1st Team All-Conference.

Personally, I believe what’s sets me apart from other prospects is my overall diversity. I have the abilities to play Strong Safety along with the OLB/Nickel position.
