My motivation as an athlete is to be the best leader, teammate, and player I can be on a daily basis, both on and off the field.
What defines success for you?
Doing everything in my power to make sure that the team reaches our goals in the end. There is nothing more important than the team.

Forty-years from now, what do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered as a leader and captain that did everything the right way and someone who put the team in the best position to be successful. Also, I want to be remembered as someone who helped change the culture of the program in a positive way.
In 15 words or less, why should an NFL team invest in you?
I’m a coachable, hard-working, and quick learning player that will always give my all.
