What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is lying because if I can’t trust you to tell the truth how can I trust you to do anything else on the field.

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

I’m a young hard working kid who is willing to do whatever it takes to win games whether it be on special teams or at TE or WR. 

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

I would compare my play to Kyle Pitts because he is an electrifying Hybrid TE in the league.

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

Shannon Sharpe because he gives some good advice and has a lot of knowledge of the game. The other two would be both my grandfathers because they were wise and gave me and my parents all the tools to be great citizens in this world and be successful as well.
