1.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

I remember being 4 years old and watching football on television with my dad and I told him that’s what I wanted to do.

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

Stay calm and do my job. I don’t try to overthink things. I just try to do what I’m supposed to.

3.What are your favorite moments from your football life?

As far as on field accomplishments I’d have to say starting in the National Championship and off the field I’d say always having great teammates and a great time.

4.What is your favorite workout?

I like working all parts of my body. My favorite days are leg days because it’s so important to performance. 

5.What sets you apart from other long snappers?

I’ve played in a pro style punt for 4 years in college, I have played in some of college football’s biggest moments and I handle pressure well.

6.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

Joe Namath because thats my dad’s favorite player of all time and I’ve heard he’s an interesting guy to hang out with.

7.What were your favorite things about playing for Vanderbilt and Alabama?

At Alabama, I enjoyed the winning culture and the team chemistry. Learning the process from the best allowed me to transfer personal success to Vanderbilt. I appreciated the connections made at Vanderbilt and plan to take lessons learned from both programs with me in the future.

8.What do you hope to accomplish if you make it into the NFL?

Putting a career together that can help my team win and help my family live out their dreams is all I work for.

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

Detail is the most important. It will fix footwork and focus, focus is second because you can’t focus on footwork until you have it. Then footwork last.

10.What would a team get in a player like you?

Teams would get a guy who is selfless and relentlessly committed to success. Ive always been a hard worker and do the best I can to improve myself, which has helped make my past teammates better and I would transfer this methodology to my potential future teammates as well.

11.What has been your biggest challenge in life?

Transferring schools was a major challenge. I had to say goodbye to the school that made me the man I am today. Leaving my coaches, teammates and friends wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to maximize my future potential. That being said, I made great connections at Vanderbilt and was able to transfer my knowledge gained from Alabama to my new teammates and and feel that I made the most of my opportunity.

12.What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?

What’s worked for me has been staying calm and treating each play as it’s own story. Not thinking about the past or future will really help any player trying to make his own way.
