I am currently training at the Landow Performance Center.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
The first thing I look for when studying film is Offensive Lineman tendencies. For example, if he is pulling, does he give it away. Then, I look to see if a Lineman gets in a different stance for a pass or a run. I also look for weaknesses in the offense from everyone across the board.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
The ability to make plays. I have the speed to catch the ball from sideline to sideline. I play through the whistle, never giving up on plays. I have a high motor that shows on film.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I am very coachable. I have a great football IQ. I am always working to improve something from week to week in season and off season. I take excellent care of my body and I am a good communicator on and off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I have excellent speed, strength, and I am very explosive off the ball. I am willing to play anywhere the team needs me. Everyday I come into the office, I am looking to get better and I never settle. I am always striving to become a better football player in all aspects of my game.
