I like the basic route (12yd in route) because I like catching the ball middle of the field and on the run.

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

I would hang out with Gronk. I feel like we have a similar personality and play style. I could learn a lot from him on and off the field.

3. What sets you apart from other tight ends?

My blocking is second to none. I finish every play with the intention of decleating them. I can separate on routes and break tackles for big gains.

When I worked with Chris Cooley earlier this year. We worked on footwork and route running and it improved my game tremendously.

I face the challenges head on. I don’t run from them, I embrace it.

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

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

They would get a gritty player who always finished every single play. They get consistency in both routes/caught balls and run blocking. I’m an all around player who also plays great special teams.
