What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My favorite moments from my football life would be going through those tough times with teammates during spring ball.

Rank focus, footwork, and skill-based on what is most important to you as a football player and explain why?

I rank them focus first, skill, then footwork. I put focus first because if your not mentally prepared and focused your skill and footwork will be lacking. The skill I would say all your other traits as a receiver like catching are in this category. Then footwork and I put footwork last because without the other two how can you succeed. 

What is your favorite workout?

My favorite workout would be stretching. I know a lot of people don’t call it a workout but once you truly start going at it for hours you definitely are working up a sweat and it’s such a key factor in becoming a great athlete.

I think the keys to success on the football field are being accountable and hardworking.

With me, a team gets a self-motivated and dedicated player who is willing to do whatever to help the team. 

What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

My mindset on the football field is that I am going to make my presence felt and show my passion for the game.

What is your favorite stadium that you’ve played in?

My favorite stadium I have played in would have to be Laidley field in Charleston, WV.
