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

Because I’ll outwork anyone in front of me, dealing with adversity is something I had to deal with growing up, especially in sports. With me knowing and understanding who I am and what specific situation I am dealing with, it should be second nature and no problem to overcome. 

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football? 6 years old! Been playing the game ever since! 

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

That I am the hardest worker on and off the field. It does not matter what position or task they throw in front of me they’ll get everything out of me! 

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

That’s a tough one! If I had to choose one I would say I would like to donate to a cause that involves a city donation. Just because it will involve a community of people that comes from all walks of life and have all types of battles fought behind closed doors. Being able to help someone’s situation is everything! Does not matter what they are going through. 

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

Best advice is probably from my father. “You vs you” everything you do is because of you. You’re in charge of every little detail, every task, every preparation. You have continued to do the little things that have got you here to begin with! 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My father was my childhood hero. I’ve lost my mother at 8 years old to cancer and I remember the day of he told me and my sister that he promise to make sure that we were good and that we “made it”. And years on years passed since then and he was consistent with his words and his actions showed every inch or mine and sisters success. I am forever thankful for my father, Rick Norris. He is the reason why I am here today! 

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school? I’m sure you guys here this one a lot but I’m going to have to go with me! 

What is your biggest pet peeve? When someone is given a task and does not execute it. One of my weaknesses is that I am OCD so I always feel like if I start something I always have to finish.

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

In a question above I talked about my loosing my mother when I was 8years old. That was one of my biggest things I had to overcome. But I would have to say overcoming the process of who I was as a person. during the COVID -19 out break it was very tough for all of us including myself. During that time I was slowly figuring out who I was as a person outside of football! 

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you? Extremely thankful for SE. I have learned a lot from my coaches and players not only with school and football but just with life like situations. Other than that a lifelong connection! 

What is your favorite snack food? I would probably say skittles and a blue Gatorade!

What is the best part of football? The preparation for the season! I love the off-season, practice, film study, Etc. 

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say? I’ll outwork anyone on the team, doesn’t matter if it’s a specific position or special teams! 

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be? I would compare myself to Steve Tasker! Because me and him are little guys that can ball at WR and special teams! Check the film!

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

Mike Tyson, Michael Jordan, Lebron James! Because they are all walking testimonies of su
