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

-I’m a top prospect at my position because of my ability to catch the football regardless of coverage. My speed and size are a combination that you do not see much. I’m also a player that’s gonna give everything to the game and strive to be the best player and person I can be.

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

-I started playing my 4th grade year but I was interested before that growing up in a family that loved the game. I was surrounded by it and knew I loved it when I was young.

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

-I’m a competitor. I’m someone that’s going to give you everything that I can. I’ll work harder than anyone else in the building to be in a chance to achieve my dream. Any position or any unit I would love to be apart of and sell myself to what those teams preach. 

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

-Anything that has to do with kids. If that’s helping with family life or helping with any sort of condition or sickness they are faced with. Kids shouldn’t have life that hard at that young.

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

-Live now. Don’t dread on the past and don’t look too far ahead. Work as hard as you can in the moment, enjoy the moment because we aren’t here that long so cherish what you have now. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

-My parents. Can’t chose one it’s impossible for me they have both brought so much to the table and sacrificed so much to make me the person I am today with the opportunities that I have today. I’ve seen my parents go through hardships but still show happiness and support like nothing was going bad. My strength comes from them. 

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

-Logan Ramper. A wide receiver that we have in our room right now that when given the opportunity is going to make the most of it. I’ve seen him work and grow into someone I believe is going to make a big impact for this team in the future.

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

-Personally I can’t stand lying or making a situation sound different than how it really is.

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

-The hardest moment in my life would’ve had to be during Covid or the semester after. Mentally I was struggling with what was going on and how football was going. The other would be seeing my mom go through cancer. Wasn’t easy to see someone you’ve looked up to fight and go through treatments. Thankfully she beat it. 

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

-I love the school because of the family setting. You don’t get this anywhere else you don’t get the bonds that we have. Here it doesn’t feel like you’re playing for yourself it is playing for your teammates, the community, the coaches, everything but yourself. We have a locker room stronger than I’ve ever been around with the same goal. Blessed to be in the position I’m in.

What is your favorite snack food? 

-Chips. Doesn’t matter what kind except salt and vinegar. 

What is the best part of football? 

-Football to me gives you a family. It’s the perfect combination or physicality and passion. For me it gives me a chance to put the hours of hard work on display but most importantly giving me the ability to make those proud of me that have looked up and believed in me.

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

-You won’t regret giving me a chance to achieve a dream. 

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

-Mike Williams. We play similar in the way we attack the ball as well as the route tree that we run.

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

-Jake Smith one of my close friends.  Marshawn Lynch and Santonio Holmes.
