What is the best restaurant in your hometown city? 

  • Los Cuatro Amigos is a really good Mexican place in Saginaw. 

When breaking down your film what will stick out?
  • I do my best to be an every-down DT. At first, a lot of people think I am primarily a run stopper, but my pass-rushing ability makes me effective on third down.

If you won the lotto, what is the first thing you would do with the money? 

  • Pay all the bills and set money aside for medical school.

What has been your biggest failure? 

  • In high school, my team was never able to make a good strong push in the playoffs and potentially get to states. This was odd because my high school had a history of winning states and being competitive during the playoffs in our division. That has always been disappointing for me. 

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

  • Focused and goal oriented

Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?

If you could pick any actor to play you in a movie, who are you picking? 

  • Vince Vaughn, we may not look a lot alike other than being big guys, but I feel like he could portray my personality pretty well.

  • The Lions have always been my team. They may not always have the best record, but I grew up watching them and I’ll always be a loyal fan.

What is your biggest fear? 

  • Being unhappy in the end with what I have been able to accomplish.

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL? 

  • I recently discovered Kyle Williams who played for the Bills. He never won a Super Bowl and received little attention outside of Buffalo. He was a pretty big force in the middle of the defense. 

Take us through game day, How do you prepare? 

  • I try to stay relaxed as I can but mentally focused throughout the day envisioning how I am going to play. Then I amp up my energy just before the game. Also, a lot of Rock music.

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

  • I grew up watching Ndamukong Suh and tried to model a lot of what I do of him threatening with power and countering with finesse moves. More recently I watch a lot of Kyle Williams. I really like his high energy, max effort play. 

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

  • My Mom has been a huge support system for me. It’s just me and her at home. She’s helped me in many ways get to where I am today. 

What motivates you to work hard?

  • I make things non-optional. I’ve already made my decision to be successful and every other choice falls in line after that.
