What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2023 NFL Draft?

My ability to get to the quarterback and drop back into the open field. I’m very athletic and my first step is quick.

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

6 years old!

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

I will never let someone outwork me. I will always work hard at what I do to perfect my craft.

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

Autism Awareness

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Nobody can do it for you, anything you want in life you have to get yourself.

Who was your childhood hero?

Tom Brady

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

Olalere Oladipo

What is your biggest pet peeve?

People who chew gum with their mouth open.

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

Transferring was a hard moment in my life. I had to grow as a person in a new community and meet new coaches and teammates. 

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

My school is built on family and love. We come together and get things done together as a unit and all have the same goal and mission. 

What is your favorite snack food?

Cookie Dough Ice Cream

What is the best part of football?

Hitting the quarterback, as well as the bond you build with your teammates and community through the game.

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

If you need me to go get the quarterback I can do that, If you need me to play the LB spot and. hold it down, I can do that. If you need me to drop back in coverage, I can do that too.

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

Matt Judon

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

Matt Judon because he is a pass rush monster and his ability to show his grit of coming from D2 is amazing. Tom Brady because he is one of the world’s best winners and knows how to win. Finally, Kobe Bryant because his work ethic is out of this world. Picking these 3 brains at a dinner would allow me to better myself.
