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

It would be Walter Payton. He’s actually the reason I got in to football. I grew up watching him with my grandmother and I wanted to be as dynamic of a player he was. He was a great person on and off the field. He would have been a good person to get advice from in both aspects.

What sets you apart from other wide receivers?

What sets me apart is that I’m not just a wide receiver. I look at myself as a athlete. I could play everywhere on the field. I played running back all the way until I got to college so some of that mentality, I still carry with me when the ball is in my hands.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

I have two moments that would stick with me forever. My first favorite moment was when I got my first D1 offer ever from Stephen F. Austin State University. Before that I was at Garden City Community College hoping that somebody would give me a chance. They offered me and I went. It was a life changing experience. My second favorite moment was when we (Central Michigan) won the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl. That win was my last college career game. There’s no better feeling then going out a champion.

I’m not someone that wants all the attention but when you do see me, I always make sure I’m doing the right things on and off the field. I’m a reserved person and humble. I’m not easily influenced at all. I’m the type of person that a lot of people respect and gravitates around because I’m a genuine person. I genuinely want to see everybody succeed around me and people could tell.

Any team willing to take the chance will get a real work horse. Nothing has ever came easy and I worked for every opportunity I was ever given. When you describe everything a football player is supposed to be, I’ll fit the description. I am a versatile player. With my ability and mentality I believe I’ll succeed at any position I’m put in. Through all the adversity I’ve been through, I still came out on top. I don’t think anything would change now.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

Whenever I reach challenges, I just remind myself how far I came and to not give up. Always have hope.

My favorite route is either the go route or deep post. I feel like if the QB throws it up I will come down with it.
