What is the best restaurant in your hometown city?
• The best restaurant in my hometown, Lisbon, Maine, would have to be a small place named Franks. It used to be the old Moxie Soda store and now has a very diverse food menu. It’s a great place to go and watch some games and eat some good food.
When breaking down your film what will stick out?
• When breaking down my film, the thing that sticks out most to me is my effort. Effort is very important especially when you’re blocking as a WR. Also, running my routes and creating separation even when I do not receive the ball.
If you won the lotto, what is the first thing you would do with the money?
• If I were to win the lottery, the first thing I’d do is give my mom and dad most of the money and then put myself in a position where I could help others.
What has been your biggest failure?

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

What is your coolest life moment?
• My coolest life moment would definitely be winning a National Championship with my travel hockey team. We got to travel all around the country and experience some things that kids usually don’t get the chance to see.

Take us through game day, How do you prepare?
• Personally, I do not do too much on game day. First, I have a good meal and then head down to the training room to get taped. After, that I hang out and get dressed in the locker room. I am a pretty loose type of guy and like to laugh and have fun before the game, but once I get on the field I’m very serious and focus on the small details. I also say the same exact prayer before each and every game.
Do you have any hobbies?
• I don’t have many hobbies, but I like to spend time with my family and friends.
If you had to compare yourself to someone in the NFL, who would that be?
• Someone in the NFL I’d compare myself to would be Stefon Diggs. I’m able to take the top off for a deep ball and able to get open on short and intermediate routes.
Who has been the biggest influence on your life and explain why?
• The biggest influence on my life would probably be my parents and brother. I don’t really open up to anyone besides them, so they always know what’s best for me and give me the best advice.
What motivates you to work hard?
• My family and my goals motivate me to work hard and keep going. I have a solid support system that believes what I am capable and I’m thankful to have them by my side. Second, just knowing and believing in myself pushes me to work harder.
