Did you play any other sports growing up?

  • Yannick Ngakoue, DE Maryland, you could just tell with his athleticism.
  • Will Likely, CB Maryland, broke the Big10 record for return yards against us.
  • Nick DeLuca, LB North Dakota State, always admired watching him on film. He can do it all.

What are you listening to before a game?

  • Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, Young Boyz, John Legend.

Pregame rituals?

  • Never feel like I have to get hyped for a game, especially at my position. Just keep my nerves down.

Role model?

  • My older brother Trey. Played QB in High School & at Bucknell. When we moved away from each other, our relationship grew. That is my best friend. If I ever need somebody to talk to, he is my guy. Great example of a guy who always does the right thing.

Favorite/Least class?

  • Marketing Research & Analysis. A lot of data & analytics. Did an internship with my professor from this course. If it were not for football that is the field I would go into. Least favorite, Calculus. No fun, I did not like it because it seems impractical.

Fav NFL Team/Player?

  • Growing up in the Philly suburbs, so I have always rooted for the Philly teams. I was a big Peyton Manning guy. Anytime there is a guy not the most athletic in the World, but is still that good I admire that.

If you could be in a movie of your choice, what would it be & what character would you play?

  • Friday Night Lights, Mike Winchell, I would win State.

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

  • Peyton Manning, LeBron James & Martin Luther King Jr.

Who is your favorite superhero?

  • He is all about helping people & saving the day.
