What makes you a top prospect at your position  in the 2022 NFL Draft?

I’m an effective offensive lineman. I have the strength to play guard and the athleticism to play tackle. I am able to learn and adapt to any situation and I believe that I am a good teammate and person. 

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

I was first interested in football when I was a kid. I started playing football in my teen years and then fell in love in high school. 

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

They should know that I am an honest, hard working man, who will do what it takes to get the job done. 

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be?

If I were to pick one it would be to fund low socioeconomic families to be able to put their kids in sports. 

What is the best advice you have ever received?

It is a little cliche but it is probably that you can do anything you want in life. I was told that as a kid and to this day I truly believe that the only limits we have in life are set by ourselves. 

Who was your childhood hero?

My mom. She taught me these lessons as said above and also showed me how true it is through her work ethic and determination. 

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?

I would say that James Fleurissaint is. He has worked very hard from day one along side arguably the best defensive line in the country and I know that this year he’s going to show everyone what he’s got. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is whining/excuses. 

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

The hardest obstacle in my university career was switching from D-Line to O-Line. It was tough to feel like I was a year behind my classmates but also mentally in the fact that I wasn’t good enough at D-Line. 

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

Laurier has a great family atmosphere, it promotes hard work and I feel it really prepares us to be men after school is over. 

What is your favorite snack food?

Favorite snack is probably some sour patch kids. 

What is the best part of football?

My favorite part about football is the teamwork. There is something special to me when 12 guys on the field all with different jobs successfully do them to complete a bigger goal.

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?

I am an honest, hard working, accountable, coachable man who will do what it takes to be the best. 

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be?

Probably someone like Quentin Nelson, just a gritty, hardworking guy who gets people on the ground. 

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?

First, I would want to have dinner with Jesus Christ. I think it’s pretty self explanatory. Second would be George Washington, although facing the most powerful army in the world at the time he stood up for what he believed in and lead a whole country so I would like to learn from his leadership and his ability to stand up for what he believed in. Finally I would like to have dinner with Tiger Woods. He is so dominant and mentally tough through injury and scandals all while playing a very difficult sport, I would like to ask how he does it.
