Just show what I can do as a football player and as a person and of course wanna become a starter and have a good healthy career.

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

Michael Vick he was a guy that was a icon on and off the field and a guy that bounced back from adversity and knows how it feels to be counted out and still come back and do his thing.

My favorite moments would be the locker room after we win man those are unforgettable and going pick 6 those are 2 things I will never forget about throughout my football career.

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

I would have to say my all of them my mom dad and brother and grandma. My mom showed me along the way that everything isn’t going to be easy in life, my pops always instilled in me that whatever you do you have to put your best foot forward at all times and taught me how to be a man, my brother taught me by his actions that everybody had there own road but at the end of the day the cream will rise to the top, and my grandma always was a hard working lady that sacrificed a lot to make sure she was always there for me and my brother.

What is your favorite defensive scheme and why?

Well we ran a 4-3 and I liked that because there was always pressure on the quarterback unlike a 3 down where it’s hard to stop the run and the pass rush isn’t as consistent.

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

Just sit back and examine the situation I try not to react right away because that’s how usually things go the wrong way so I just sit back and see things from both sides and then move accordingly.

What would a team get in a player like you?

A player that loves to compete and is willing to do what it takes to win and a guy that isn’t scared to be great willing to test the limits.

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

The grind all week with my brothers knowing we are all working hard for the same goal.

Who is the most underrated players I have ever played with and why?

I would say Trey Harris, he’s a guy that can do everything at the receiver spot inside and outside has very strong hands and is willing to do the dirty work.
