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

 My motor and ability to make make plans and IQ of the game.

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

At the age of seven, I was first interested in the sport of football due to my brother and my dad playing football. 

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

I feel like the NFL teams should know that I am coachable and is going to be an x-factor for the team and a team contributor by any means. 

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

I think if I could donate to any cause it would have to be a cure for COVID because my grandma pass away from COVID. 

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

Be kind to people, treat people as you would like to be treated. Life is short, and every moment is precious. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My childhood hero would have to be my parents because they were my heroes and they did everything good in life and in sports 

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

I think the most underrated teammate in the locker room at my school would have to be Amari Curtis. 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

Talking when your mouth is full or bragging.

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

The hardest moment in my life to overcome was that i was being told that I was too small for my size to play an offensive line or defense but I didn’t let that affect my playing, so I got into weight room and got stronger and work on my craft. 

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

Saint Johns University is special to me because when I first visited it just felt like home and the community is welcoming and I really love that about it. 

What is your favorite snack food? 

Hot Cheetos or Air Heads 

What is the best part of football? 

Football is a kids game and sometimes you just have to treat it like it and have fun while playing football. The best part of football is defensive excitement with the big hits, defensive touchdowns, and sacks 

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

Any team that takes a chance on me will get someone that can be team contributor and playmaker when needed.

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

Aaron Donald 

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

Aaron Donald, Haloti Ngata, and Tom Brady because these three people felt like changing the game on the field and off the field and two of them are the most dominant player on the defensive line. I pick Tom Brady because he’s the GOAT.
