List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?
• 1. Strength and conditioning 2. Film study 3. Practice  I would say this order because if u don’t evaluate your opponent and don’t physically prepare for battle then practice is pointless. It takes great preparation and film study to be able to correctly practice for your opponent that week

What do you worry about, and why?
• Not accomplishing my dreams, when you put 15+ years of blood, sweat, and tears into something there’s an unmatched passion that drives you for success.

Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?

Room, desk, and car – which do you clean first?
• Room, car then desk 

If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?
• 3 strangers, I love my family to death but 3 lives have a chance to make a greater impact in society than one

If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?
• Killmonger- he wants to help the proletariat rise up and take power not just the bourgeoisie

Tell me about your biggest adversity in life and how you’ve dealt with or overcome it?

• My 2 years @ Nassau C.C. Were rough, there were days when I wouldn’t eat anything and I’d still walk 2.5 miles one way to class and practice. Even slept in a McDonald’s booth for some time when I was homeless. I respect every JUCO player that makes unbelievable sacrifices just to keep on playing ball

What is your most embarrassing moment?
• One week when we traveled to Adams state I forgot my cleats and my helmet and had to buy some new cleats and wear a helmet with an LB face mask

If you were to open a dance club, what would you name it?• Club vibezzz

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL?

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?
• Respected, I’d rather be hated but respected than liked and disrespected

What player who had his career derailed by off-field issues do you feel for the most and why?
• Jermichael Finley, you want every player to go out on there own terms it just sucks to see such a good player go out when he’s not ready due to injury 

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?
• Hate to lose, personally I hate losing more than I love winning

Who has been the biggest influence on your life and explain why?

• My mom and steps dad, they’ve always been there to support me from the good days and the bad and I probably wouldn’t be we’re I’m at if it wasn’t for them
