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

– What makes me a top prospect at my position in the 2023 NFL draft class is my hard work ethic and drive to be the best combined with the talent that I have been blessed with. There is no one that wants to make it more than me. Also, I believe that I am no doubt the best pass catcher of the football in my class.

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

– My parents say I was interested in the sport of football first at the age of 4. Then from what I remember it was when I was 6 years old and I just wanted to do anything that had to do with football and that’s when I really fell in love with the game.

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

– One thing that NFL teams should know about me is that I truly love the game of football and it’s all I want to do they would be getting someone who is gonna compete everyday and have the determination to be the best to help my team win.

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

– Definitely donate shelter and food to all the families that are less fortunate and kids that are struggling and don’t have a lot.

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

– Discipline equals no regret. I live by that statement. My dad engraved that into my mind early on and I have always gone by it. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

– Tom Brady 

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

– Brannon Flowers, one of our safeties, is a really good person and works hard, I enjoy talking with him and he always has a good attitude towards whatever we are doing.

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

– People who are negative about any situation and towards life in general. I can’t stand being around negativity.

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

– I’ve been overcoming adversity my whole life in football. I always have played the underdog role. But I love playing that role because it is great proving people wrong but more importantly proving myself right. I always bet on myself. The hardest moment in life that I had to overcome was probably not being allowed to play receiver in high school and still trying to get looks by colleges because I knew WR is the position that I love and wanted to play. 

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

– My school is really big on virtue. Being virtuous in everyday life and it is so special to me because it really changes your outlook on things for the better and definitely has helped shaped me into a better person.

What is your favorite snack food? 

– My favorite snack food has got to be Peanut butter and honey sandwiches! 

What is the best part of football? 

– The best part of football is getting to go out and play the game I have loved my whole life since I can remember, and the game makes me want to be the best version of myself. It also really teaches you lessons that apply to off the field as well, and then just being able to go play the game without having to worry about anything else going on. Also, the enjoyment of playing is the best, I have the most fun when playing this game. 

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

– I am a competitive winner and never actually lose, any loss just teaches me how to become better. 

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

– Easily Julian Edelman. Both of our gameplay styles are I think borderline identical. Quicker than fast players, great awareness on the field, just all-around complete football players.

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

  1. Tom Brady
  2. Kobe Bryant 
  3. Julian Edelman
