What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

So originally I had no reason why I wanted to play football even though I played at 8 but my dad showed me these photos of a Roughriders-Stampeders and then I fell in love with the sport and enjoyed it.

Ray Lewis, the insight he would give me and advice the whole day in life and the football mentality just would help me along the way.

Which one of your family members inspires you the most and why?

My dad, just being able to see him grow and support this big family of 5 which I am the youngest of.

My relentless pursuit and relentless effort and I’m close to the ball if I’m not making the tackle.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

I will take a quick second on the sideline on the field or off and take in information and see what my best plan of attack is with the information I have.

What would a team get in a player like you?

Someone who never quits no matter the odds or the score and wants the best outcome.

What do you love the most about the game of football?

It’s competitive nature, growing up being the youngest there was always competition you have to impose your best effort.

Who is the most underrated player you’ve played with and why?

Dyton Blackett, came from a small town in Nova Scotia and came into college and put forth his best effort from day one.
