Someone who’s disrespectful  

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

Hardest moment in my life to overcome was having ankle surgery, I never dealt with anything like that and being unable to walk and needing plates, screws in my ankle, I just knew football was over. I was at a point to give up but everyday my pops would just talk to me about general life and that gave me a different turnout on things. Now I’m back to put on a show that ended early 

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

This school is special to me because of the teacher to student ratio. Smaller classrooms which allow the teachers to help you and gives you the attention you need. My coaches push us each and everyday to be better men on and off the field and they want to make sure we leave the program with a degree.

I would compare my play to Tyrann Mathieu or CJ Gardner-Johnson these guys has high motors and is always around the football, they also can play anywhere in the secondary. 

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

I would have dinner with my uncle who is deceased, Why? Because he’s the closes person I’ve ever lost and he wanted so much for me in life no matter what it would be. I talked to him daily about everything, especially when our saints played on Sundays but now things is different. Its not a day go by without me thinking of him & I just wish that he could see it all.
