What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2024 NFL Draft

I have been playing in the trenches all my life and being moved around all throughout the line positions I have became very versatile with my play and my IQ for the game. My ability to play the 3 technique and nose position is what I believe is what sets me apart from most DT’s.  I have always been very versatile and coachable in areas where I can still always be able to progress! I believe I can compete with anyone and be able to keep progressing pass and become a dominant player in the league. I just need an opportunity to prove I can play with the best and show what I am capable of!

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

My mom used to tell me stories how as I was a baby shed place me in front of a football game to stop me from crying so Id truly say I was interested from a very young age! I started playing football at the age of 5 and have been in love with it ever since!

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

One thing they should know about me is I never back down from adversity!

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be? 

I would say the main one that effects me the most would be to donate to the Boys & Girls Club Foundation. Reason being growing up my parents were both hard working adults that had to provide for 4 kids and try and be every where at once. With the Boys & Girls Club it made me not only have a space to stay on track with my homework and create new friendships but also created better help for my family! I would like to continue to implement more ways to helping kids like this and strive to find even better ways to even help their families!

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

The best advice I ever received would probably be from my mom when she would always tell me the saying, “Everything happens for a reason”. This was the best advice because it made me understand that in adversity in life that sometimes stuff wont go your way but there was a reason why it happened and to focus on what is truly positive happening in your life!

Who was your childhood hero? 

My mom because I’ve seen everything she has had to go through and it always reminds me to be strong and to fight for what I want in life!

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school? 

I would say my most underrated teammate would be Bernie Fleaurima because he is the hardest worker on the team and even sometimes he doesn’t get the play time he deserves he still loves and supports his teammates unconditionally!

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

People who believe they don’t have to put in the work to get what they want and expect it to just be given to them.

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

Hardest moment in my life would be have to be transferring JUCO’s and not playing at a new one because I wasn’t the right weight for them to sell. I lost interests from major schools but it taught me to keep working and find the best opportunities for me and thrive in them!

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

This school is the only school to where I can say I can trust the coaches and the work ethic they put out shows they care for their players! Actually caring for us and making it feel as if were a family!

What is your favorite snack food? 

Favorite snack food would definitely have to be Cheez Itz.

What is the best part of football? 

The best part of football are those moments where the team all comes together just for a couple moments. Those memories last a lifetime and its what make teams come together as a family.

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say? 

The hardest worker and most battle tested player around!

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be? 

Cam Heyward

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

I would have dinner with Kobe, Lebron, and J Cole. Id say these three have effected me a lot my childhood and have shaped me to be who I am today. Kobe Bryant shower me how to be a competitor and not to back down from a challenge and the knowledge from him and his work ethic would be great to know. Lebron James being one of the most influential players on and off the court would be able to learn more about how to lead people and motivate them to a higher level. J Cole being another one because growing up listening to his music many of his words of motivation hit home for me and helped me through many hard times. Being able to understand more about how he got through hard times personally can better prepare me for my own mental struggles.
