What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 NFL Draft?
- What makes me stand out the most out of all the running backs in this year’s draft is that I am very versatile. I can play on every down. I can also be utilized in multiple ways in the run game whether that’s at running back, Halfback or Fullback. I’m a solid pass protector in the passing game and have the size and strength to protect the quarterback from any defenders. My Athleticism sets me apart from all the backs in this year’s draft.

If I could donate to anything in the world it would be local programs similar to that to aid children’s needs in any way possible.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
- One of the best pieces of advice I have ever received is that you can’t beat the person who never gives up. No matter what the situation is, you have to have that drive to keep going. As people we have to fight when our backs are against the wall to be able to win in the end.
