What was your major/minor? Did you participate in any other activities besides football?

My major was Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. The main thing that I participated in besides football is community service at the local school.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

My teammates would say my best quality is my work ethic. 

What kind of role do you see yourself in on the team? What scheme and/or position suits your skill set?

The role I see myself in on the team is a leader, someone to set the example. Running outside zone my way is a scheme that suits my skill set and the position I would say left tackle. 

Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?

I faced the best player I played against in college my freshman year against UNCP. His name is Alpha Lamin, he plays defensive end and he is a monster. 

Which one of your teammates impresses you the most?

Donshel Jetton is one of my teammates who impresses me the most because the dude works hard day in and day out, whether he is 100% or 50%. To me that is rare because a lot of people make excuses as to why they can’t do something. 

Describe a time in your life when you were able to overcome a struggle.

A time in life when I was able to overcome a struggle was having to sit out a year due to shoulder problems. I consider myself overcoming it because that following season I made an all-conference first team.

Something I am most proud of is how I haven’t given up. My biggest achievement would have to be graduating from college. 

Describe one of the most memorable plays of your collegiate career.

It’s more of a series but one game we needed something big so we ran outside zone to my side 3 or 4 times in a row and scored. I must say I was pretty lit on the field.

Do you have a favorite athlete or professional team? Is there a player that you model your game after?

My Favorite professional team is the New England Patriots. I have been a Patriots fan since I was able to understand it watching Randy Moss torch anybody who was in front of him.

Who is your favorite music artist? What gets you pumped before a game?

Kodak Black is my favorite music artist but to get pumped before the game I have to play some Key Glock.

What is your favorite comfort food?

My favorite comfort food is teriyaki chicken wings.

Favorite movie is The Longest Yard and my favorite actor is probably Chris Tucker only because Rush Hour is competing for the favorite movie spot.

What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies? Any secret talents?

In my spare time, I enjoy playing Call of Duty. I may be the best player you know. 

Who or what motivates you the most?

Who motivates me the most is my mother. I want to eventually be able to give her a better life.
