What do your teammates say is your best quality?

Who is the hardest working teammate on your team? 

• I gotta go with my mans Kailen Abrams, he’s just built different and a machine. Every play he’s somewhere in the vicinity of the ball, real high motor stand up guy.

Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?

• I grew up on being called Dre, Ke, muscles, and some of the gang likes to be funny and call me “million dolla”, a lil inside joke they use against me lol

What is your degree in, if you do not make it as a football player, what is your dream job? 

  My degree is in sociology, my other dream job is to be an entrepreneur and philanthropist. Own multiple streams of businesses, franchises, cleaning services, youth programs. Anything that can play a part in giving back to my community.

What is your coolest life moment? 

•  I think my coolest life moment was Spring 18’ I spent spring break in Mexico had a eventful weekend, then the following week ended up working Coachella, met some of the worlds biggest influencers, professional athletes and I got to see Beyoncé kill it two weekends in a row, so that was a pretty dope experience!

What song would you sing at Karaoke night? 

•  Young Thug x Tomorrow till infinity, Jefferey be going crazy

•  Caution, will get to flaming you if I think you look funny to me

What is your biggest fear? 

•   My biggest fear is not being the man I need to be when my kids are born

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL? 

  uhhh in my opinion it’s between Darius slay and Ha-Ha Clinton Dix, I say Darius because he’s been playing at an elite level for consecutive years but doesn’t get the credit he deserves. Ha-Ha because he was once there at an elite level of play and still has that potential even after switching teams. 

Take us through game day, How do you prepare? 

  I wake up, meditate first thing in the morning to clear my mind, start envisioning the plays I’m going to make, instead of music I listen to self help audios, repeating words of affirmation to myself, get my swag ready then turn on some Gucci or Jeezy to get me turnt before warm ups

Do you have any hobbies? 

•  Yea I love hopping on the PS4 and watching anime, people sleep on anime hard

If you had to compare yourself to someone in the NFL, who would that be? 

•  Jimmy ward with a splash of Patrick Chung 

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

God, I’ve built a relationship with God and everyday I learn more about myself and understand how life operates.

What motivates you to work hard?

Those long winter nights where my mother brother and I had to sleep in the car just to get some heat because we couldn’t afford none at the time. Seeing her still work paycheck to paycheck just to get by and seeing the younger kids look up to me knowing they can make it out the city is what motivates me
