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

My size, athleticism, and speed. I was a late bloomer in growing into my body so my measurables have increased greatly since coming out of highschool.

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

I was 4 years old when I first got into football.

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

I’m extremely competitive, confident, and I will do anything that is asked of me in order to do my job correctly. 

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

Children living in poverty.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

To find something that you’re good at in life and work your tail off at it.

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

After highschool I attended a junior college in which I left before the start of the season. I was not able to get back into playing college football for almost 2 years after this because of financial and other reasons, which was the most trying and lowest part of my life. Millersville was the only school that gave me a shot to come back and play. 

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

Millersville was the only school that gave me an opportunity to prove myself after leaving my previous school. The coaches have believed in me since day 1 and my teammates are family. I came into this program during a huge rebuild and made a vow to myself that I was going to turn this program around and we are well on our way to doing that. 

What is your favorite snack food?

I’m not a big snack person but either yogurt or almonds

Whenever I am at a practice, game, or a lift nothing else matters besides football. It brings me peace of mind from anything else going on in the world.

Trust that you’re getting the best long term investment. 

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

Darius Leonard 

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

Ray Lewis, Martin Luther King Jr, and Malcolm X. Ray Lewis because I always looked up to his motivation as a kid. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X to learn more about my culture and how I can create an impact on our society today.
