What made me want to be a football player is when I started out as a basketball player and didn’t transition over to football until high school. What impacted my transition was my brother Jermaine and my cousin Lorenzo. They put the thought in my mind about playing. So I started playing and fell in love with it ever since.
8.What are your favorite moments from your football life?
My favorite moments was actually recently. I broke the school’s records for TDs in a game and Most Yards in a game. It really impacted me because I have close people around that are going through things in their life and it made me realize that you can’t take things in life for granted. They wanted me to play for them and have a bigger purpose other than just putting on a jersey and playing. So that right there was a moment in my football life that made me realize how much more it is then just playing.

My favorite route is a go route because corners mistake me for not being as fast as I am because of my size.
