Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?
In high school I had a close friend named tyshaud . He went down the wrong path because his mind wasn’t too focused on school and he wasn’t eligible to play football that year. He eventually was killed during my 11th grade year in High School, and I blamed myself because I felt I should’ve been on his case more about his decisions and class work. I always asked myself if he played football would that have saved him?

I compare myself to chad Ochocinco , his body control , catching ability, and always finds a way to get open.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Kobe Bryant , Kanye West , Malcolm x.
I always wanted to pick these 3 people’s brains…no matter the advertising and criticism that surrounds them, they always found a way to make ends meet with their vision. They started off not liked or overlooked and then became the top of their craft. The creativity by Kanye , the effort and hard work by Kobe , the will power of Malcolm X…the mentality of all.
