My mom because I’ve been watch her be strong all my life. When situations got hard I seen her be strong and handle all in her on making sure me and my siblings got what we need. 

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?

Brandon Adams 

What is your biggest pet peeve?


Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

My freshman year of college I had zero catches and only two targets all year with my team finishing 3-8. When I was in high school I would get the ball every other play or so and maybe only lost a total of 9 games all of high school. I had to become more mentally strong dealing with losing and not getting the ball. Which taught me how to work harder also taught me how to become a better leader. 

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

Even though it’s a small school in Oklahoma people make it to the next level from here.

Making the play when your number is called. 

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?

I am consistent and work hard. 

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be?

Even though I have my own type of game play I would still say Allen Robinson. Because we are both good at getting separation and make  contested catches. 

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Randy Moss because he is my favorite WR of all time and there is so much I could learn from him. Lebron James because he is my favorite player of all time and he has always lived up to the expectations. Lastly Curtis Jackson known as 50 cent I read his book one time he seems like a great person to meet.
