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

Definitely, my downhill running, running behind my pads getting north and south in a hurry. When I am at full speed downhill with shoulders squared I cannot be contained. Also being a consistent blocker and running routes in the passing game is key. Having great vision, patience, and great acceleration behind each of my runs. A power back that is an All-Around Running Back.

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

4 years old

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

 You’d be getting a player with a high motor and very coachable. Someone who will play a part of any role to help the team dominate. In addition to being a great leader and great teammate. Someone who knows nothing is given to you, you have to take it. I bring great energy to practice and games.

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

The coaches and my teammates, everyone here is family and it feels like you’re just at home. Being part of a team that grew up playing against each other in lower levels makes it exciting.

What is the best part of football?

The physicality, atmosphere, and the going to war mindset with my teammates. The ability to hit people, run people over, and score touchdowns are exciting too. It’s my stress reliever, it’s like meditation, it helps me relax.

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

I would have dinner with Kobe Bryant, Myron Rolle, and Chadwick Boseman because they are very inspiring individuals who are great role models to their family, friends, and fans. They also are motivational speakers who are known for their perseverance and determination through tough tasks that overcame adversity.
