Not with me personally, but they have been to games and spoken with my coaches. They said that they like my ability to pass rush off the edge.

Basketball, baseball

At your position, what separates you from others?

My motor. A lot of the plays I make come off of second or third efforts and from me out-hustling my opponents. Most defensive ends rotate throughout the game to stay fresh, but I worked hard to get in good shape and played every snap this year besides four.

I look for tendencies in the offense and the guys I will be going against that may tip off what play is coming so that I can jump it. I also look at how offensive linemen set up and kick in order to know which pass rush moves will work best against them.

Cole Toner, Harvard’s Offensive Tackle

Not really, I like to get my mind off of the game for a few minutes and just talk to my dad.
