If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
Stefon Diggs or Lamar Jackson or Leonard Fournette, they all are funny and know how to have a good time and plus they always find a way to work their craft.
Which one of your family members inspires you the most and why?
My mom always makes me go harder that she’s working but she plays a big part in my work ethic.
What is your favorite offensive scheme and why?
I like the balanced attack with a run and shoot tempo the year when lamar won mvp when they ran the football made defenses bring 9 in the box gave Mark Andrews and Hollywood majority 1v1 matchups so when they had to respect the pass and go more of a pass set defense most teams tried the nickel formation which would destroy them in the box so it became more of a pick your poison and regardless they couldn’t stop the run as they would go along to break the team rushing record in the season.

What stands out about your film the most?
The explosion and the way to get the job done look at the downs on my film you would be surprised and start seeing what I’m doing in situations that we just needed to move the ball or get the job done I’m the guy. Also I can take on defense ends and add my protection to the pass pro and run game.
How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?
Honestly have to keep faith majority of the time it’s a battle you miss a lot of time in the sacrifices of this game we play. But it’s really my mental game that really keeps everything flowing for me regardless the situation I am blessed I got up and now I gotta keep going regardless have to keep showing love and keep faith.
What would a team get in a player like you?
A hardworking and great dedicated leader on and off the field.
How are you planning to train for the draft?
Honestly get back to the basics and just turn it up a notch I always start back to the basics helps more with my fundamentals and technique on my body.
