My mom definitely because she showed me how to be strong on my own and defeat all odds despite being unsized playing receiver
Who was your favorite teacher?
Brian Nowotnik definitely my high school senior year English teacher.
Did you play any other sports growing up?
Basketball, lacrosse, baseball, and soccer
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Garry Brown. Best receiver I’ve seen play live was a man among boys on the field
Who is the most underrated player on your team?
Cam Boykin and Tommy Halloway, they were selected 2nd team all-conference as sophomores it’ll be exciting to see what they do these next two years
What is the one song that would fire you up before the biggest game of your life?
Definitely, have to go with “Who I do it for” by YFN Lucci, gets me locked in and relaxes my nerves and body before the game
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
I would definitely say, Antonio Brown. We both don’t really have the height of a pure receiver but can run great routes and create separation. I played mainly outside receiver in college but I can go into the slot as well like AB. I try to model my game and work ethic after his in so many ways.

Being a smaller receiver in the very competitive conference. It took a lot of dedication in the offseason and film study to help reach my goals that I did throughout my career
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
FaceTime my Mom a couple hours before the game and get my pep talk. Post a game day picture on Instagram and pray at the 10-yard line before kickoff.
What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?
Definitely, have to be scoring the game-winning touchdown with 30 something seconds left in the game. They were man to man coverage and it was 4&7. I was backside 1 on 1. I was going to run a speed out at first until I saw the coverage. My QB looked over at me right before the snap and I gave him the signal for a slant at the last second. The ball was snapped he threw me the slant and I broke the tackle and took it 33 yards for the win.
What is the coolest thing you ever did off the field for someone else?
Definitely building a relationship with my little buddy Gavin who we helped through the make a wish foundation. Just being there for him and his family has definitely meant a lot to me and we keep in contact till this day.
Who was your favorite NFL team growing up?
Los Angeles Chargers

Barack Obama, Antonio Brown, and Lebron James
