What is your favorite song to listen to prior to competing?
Roddy Ricch – Every Season.
How would your teammates describe you as both a player and person?
On the field versatile, accountable, relentless, and fearless. As a person, I would say funny, dependable, determined, and loyal.
How do you and your teammates make practice and film study fun?
To make practice fun we always talked about who will get the most tackles or sacks that day at practice, and to make film fun we used to watch our practice film and compare it to our favorite NFL players film to see what we could take from their game while improving ours as well.
When you are studying film, what is your main focus to gain a competitive advantage?
My main focus would be knowing their favorite formations to line up in because that gives you an idea of what plays to expect on certain downs.
While at the Collegiate level, who has been the toughest player you have competed against?
For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
I’m most grateful for God, family, and football. Without those three things in my life, I honestly don’t know where I would be.
What team do you choose in Madden? Why?
I actually play with random teams so that I could be good with any team I play with.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be?
What do you value most from your Collegiate experience?
The relationships I’ve built with my teammates, and just being apart of true brotherhood with guys that are on the same mission as you.
Who is your personal hero?
Tell me something about yourself nobody would know.
I’m very good at imitating people’s voices.
How do you work on yourself?
Honestly, I just wake up every morning and put my greatest effort towards being the best person I can be and just take it one day at a time.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
Inky Johnson, and Eric Thomas. Those are two of the greatest motivational speakers in the world and just hearing about what they’ve experienced and the adversity they’ve overcome I feel like I would be able to learn a lot about life and gain a lot of good qualities from them.
If you could have any superpower, what power would it be and why?
Speed, I always wanted to be extremely fast for some strange reason.
What would constitute a perfect day for you?
I believe any day I wake up is a perfect day because some people don’t get to see another day. So any day I open my eyes I’m blessed and thankful for it.
Who inspired you as a young athlete?
Sean Taylor and Ed Reed.
What are the positive attributes that you bring to a professional football team?
Versatility because I can play at all three levels on defense, accountable because you can count on me to always do my job on the field, and selfless because I’m willing to do anything to help my team succeed.
Tell me about a time where you overcame a challenge.
Playing half of my 2017 season with two shoulder injuries despite how much pain I was in.
What one skill would you like to improve on? What’s your plan for doing so?
I would like to improve in everything because you can never be to perfect at anything so every time I get a chance to workout I work on everything.
If you could tackle an NFL RB, past or present, who would it be and why?
Marshawn Lynch, he was always good at breaking tackles, getting extra yards, and he runs like a beast.
What current/former NFL player do you model your playing style after?
Kam Chancellor/Malcolm Jenkins.
What is the best part of your hometown; Miami, FL?
Football season, the best football players come from Miami.
In 15 words or less, give me your pitch to an NFL GM on why you should be a part of their organization.
I’m a versatile player who can play at all three levels on defense and reliable on special teams.
