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

I took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase my chances of going pro by getting a chance to develop myself another year and ultimately to have more film for scouts to evaluate.

Truthfully speaking my coaches and teammates would say I am a hard-worker, dedicated, focused, smart, resilient, embraces the grind, selfless and puts the team first.

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

When studying film, depending on what I’m watching for the day, I like to dial in on the little things. For example, I look at defensive schemes, I look for pre/post snap movements, what players travel with a WR, a defensive backs tendencies, hips and eyes. When studying kickers, I look at the hang time, the hash he like to kick off of, what leg he uses to kick and his steps leading up to a kickoff and how he holds the ball on a punt.

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

My play speed is what separates me the most however my attention to the details, being coachable, being a student of the game, knowing the offensive playbook inside and out, willing to sacrifice my own wants for the greater good of the team.

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

My off-season plans are to train and prepare for professional opportunities by continuing workout both on the field and in the weight room as usual. At this stage it is about being available and being durable so recovery is going to be key. Taking care of my body and mental is going to be a top priority. I am currently training at Bommaritos Performance Systems preparing for my Pro Day March 31st.

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

My strengths and abilities that I will bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field is that I am coachable, always willing to learn, dedicated to perfecting my craft, and outside of football I am dependable, respectful and ultimately a great guy to be around on and off the field. My strengths and abilities that will also stand out on the field is my speed, in which you cannot teach. I am easily a 4.3 sub 4.2 guy on a great day.

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

I have dreamed about this chance since I was 5 years old, and now that the chance is here I’m prepared mentally and physically. This is my passion, and I have nothing but love for the game. I just need a team to take a chance on me to let me come in and compete. I am a competitor and always have been. I will come in to compete and earn my spot. Whatever my role is for the team, I will do to the best of my abilities. The best is yet to come from me. Finally, I believe in myself, I will always be modest, and I am willing to go for it in order to make my childhood aspirations a reality. Something for coaches to keep in mind is that I am guy that they will not have to babysit, my maturity level off the field has never been a problem.
