G Herbo.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, living or deceased, who would it be and why?

LeBron James, my favorite athlete. He seems like a cool dude  outside of basketball, and I’d be able to get good advice concerning taking my body & conditioning to the next level. 

Forty-years from now, what do you want to be remembered for?

I just want to be known as someone who was likable and had a positive impact on other. Someone who could make you smile and could always get along with. Someone you can always count on most importantly. 

In 15 words or less, why should an NFL team invest in you?

I’m a game changer/playmaker. I can stretch the field and make opposing defenses uncomfortable.
