Did you play any other sports growing up?
I’ve played football since I was 6 years old. I played basketball, football, and ran track in high school.
Did you play any other positions in football?
In high school I played quarterback, wide receiver, cornerback, punter, and kick return.
At your position, what separates you from others?
What separates me from others is my ball skills and my true lockdown ability. I have an advantage over most cornerbacks because I played wide receiver and cornerback in high school and junior college.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
When I break down film I first look to see who is their go to guy, because I like to cover the best receiver. When I realize who their best receiver is I study him. I look to see if he has a good release off the press, if he is aggressive and how he comes off the ball every snap.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
The toughest player I ever faced is NFL prospect from Texas A&M commerce Vernon Johnson. We played wide receiver together at Southwestern community college and I also had to guard him everyday in practice.
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
I would have to say Richard Sherman. The reason I say Richard Sherman is because we both have outstanding ball skills, great height, true lockdown ability, and we both played wide receiver and cornerback.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
The biggest obstacle in my life that I had to overcome was losing my scholarship to Western Kentucky University in 2013. I overcame it by remaining strong, not giving up on what I love to do, and believing that everything happens for a reason and God has a plan.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
I like to make sure each and every one of my teammates are ready to go, and I must talk to my parents before every football game.
What is your biggest strength?
My biggest strength is that I’m always prepared and there are not too many people that can outwork me on the field.
What is your biggest weakness?
My biggest weakness is whenever workouts are over, I never want to leave.
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I would say if you gave me an opportunity I would not disappoint you. I would promise to give you 110% everyday in everything I do.
Who was your favorite player and NFL team growing up?
My favorite NFL player growing up was Deion Sanders because he was very versatile like myself. My favorite NFL team was the Miami Dolphins.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
If I could have dinner with 3 people, it would be my grandmother, Urban Meyer, and Joe Paterno.
