1.If your life was a TV show what would you call it and why?
I would call it Trusting the process because I know that the work I put in now whether it’s with football, school, or even at work will be worth all of the ups and downs you go through in life.
2.What do you do for fun?
For fun, I like to travel, play the game with my friends and go outside and exercise.
3.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?
My mindset on the football field is that whoever lines up across from me is going to get the best out of me every play so they better be ready.
4.How has your experience as a Stetson University Hatters football player been?
My experience at Stetson has helped me grow as a player and a person. Starting every game since my freshman year really helped me get comfortable with being on the field during crunch times and forced me to step up and make plays for the team early. This biggest thing for me was going from a 2-8 season to an 8-2 season the next year. Being apart of that journey helped me experience what a team needs to do to go from a bad team to a great team.
5.What has been your favorite stadium that you have played in?
When I was playing little league my team raised enough money to play after the Falcons in the Georgia Dome, so that has always been a dream for me to play on the big stage.
6.What do you hope to accomplish if you make it into the NFL?
I just hope to leave a legacy of greatness
7.What is your favorite workout?
My favorite workout is anything footwork related. I could spend all day doing release drills and running routes.
8.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?
It’s not something I decided I feel like it was natural and I just ran with it.
9.What has been your biggest challenge in life?
Probably going through high school being under-recruited and always been overlooked has been a tough challenge but it helped me realized that is just life and you just have to keep going even with the odds stacked against you.
10.What would a team get in a player like you?
A team would get a player who is coachable, a leader, a hard worker, and a respectful and honest person.
11.What are your favorite moments from your football life?
I would say one of my favorite moments is when we beat Drake in Iowa on the last play of the game.
12.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
I would meet with Chad Johnson because he was probably one of the most entertaining players the NFL has seen and he changed the way receivers use their feet and footwork to win whether it was at the line of scrimmage of even the top of the route. I would just sit and talk about football the whole time and try to soak up as much game as I can.
