What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My top 2 favorite moments, one was in high school my junior year when I scored on a deep post 1st play coming out of half, we were playing the #1 team in Texas arguably that year Katy Tigers and we were actually down a touchdown at the time and just turning around and watching my mom jump up and down happy kept a smile on my face. My second favorite was going into my first year at Fresno State coming off an injury about the 3rd game I ran a deep post and when I made that diving catch I just stood up and started looking around the whole stadium, that moment was real to me in a lot of ways, I mean when I stood up and just looked around seeing Bulldog stadium filled up and jumping was really exciting, that moment really was special because me just realizing all the work I had to do to just get here it was real.

I’m working with Kyle Kleeman for DST Houston for speed and strength and so far everything has been going great! Wide receiver wise I’m in the lab with Delfonte Diamond and this man is everything you could ask for in a trainer and that’s all I’m going to say.
