  • Andrew Whitworth, because he is big and savvy and good in pass pro. 

Did you have a favorite player or team in the NFL when you were growing up? 

  • Not really, I like Tom Brady a lot because of the greatness he presents and is always prepared and takes football very seriously. 

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

  • Elon Musk, Shannon Sharpe, and Tom Brady. I chose these three because they all have accomplished things I hope to do, and bring in their point of view from all across the US. I’d love to pick their brains about football and life and Elon Musk I’d just hope to have a friendship with him and pick his brain about Tesla and what he is going to do in the future.
