I am very athletic for my position and I always play with a chip on my shoulder. Finishing every play, but always playing smart.

Drafted or not, you will get a dominant Offensive Lineman that just needs a shot. I’m a student of the game and want to learn everything I can from the ones who have paved the way for me to be where I am. I’ve always had to prove myself and that will never change no matter what level I’m at. Always seeking to be the best that I can.
