One of my favorite moments was my sophomore year of high school when I took the opening kick off 90 yards against Canon City.

What are you looking to achieve as a football player going forward?

Something I’m trying to achieve is not having any regrets or doubt about my ability to play at a higher level.

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

A player I’d hang out with is Odell Beckham Jr because he’s the person I study the most.

A person who inspires me the most is my mom or my siblings because they always know what I’m capable of.

What is your favorite offensive scheme and why?

My favorite offensive scheme is a 2×2 set because it opens up the field way more and you can see the matchups way better.

Something you should know is that I’m very versatile.

By working out and going to the field that’s the best coping mechanism for me at least.

What would a team get in a player like you?

A team would get a hard worker, a fast learner when it comes to schemes, a playmaker, a football junkie.

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

What I love most is that when you’re in between the lines the outside world doesn’t matter. You can cut everything off and focus.

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

The most underrated player I’ve played with is probably my brother Isaiah Tivis because he’s just as talented and went to a small D2 in the RMAC.
