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

I believe that I am one of the top prospects at my position because I feel like I am a hidden gym. I believe that I carry strong attributes that allow me to compete at a high level. I believe I am an exciting player and when a team can get the ball in my hands I feel like I can always make something special happen. I believe that I am also one of the most physical blocking wide receivers at my positions for my size in this draft. I believe that I have the passion, hunger, poise and talent  to compete vs grown men at the professional level given an opportunity.

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome? 
I feel like the biggest adversity I’ve had to deal with in my life is dealing with the death of both my parents at a young age. Losing my mom at 12 taught me so much i life and it made me grow up so fast. And losing my Dad at 17 was really just a mental setback. I was prepared to deal with it because my moms death prepared me before, but i didn’t know what to do other than fall into a bad mental state. My parents both taught me so many valuable lessons. The lessons and morals they taught me drive me and keep me focused on my goal each day. My parents told me never give up, always fight for what you want, and never let anyone tell you what you can and can’t do. My parents meant the most to me when they were here. Because of the relentless attitude they have instilled in me I pursue a dream of playing professional Football in the NFL to take care of my oldest and youngest sisters. We are all here now to chase our dreams for our parents and for me my passion is with football. I believe God has blessed me with talents and a story and I believe that I was sent here to earth to glorify God with what he has given me. I hope that my story and journey to the NFL inspires some other kid with a dark story to overcome his past and get exactly what life has prepared for him.
