What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2025 NFL Draft?

I possess high level athleticism, football IQ, and footwork. One of my strengths as a player is consistency.

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

I am never satisfied as a player. I am always hungry to improve my game and level of play.

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

Wounded Warriors Canada. One of the people closest to me is a veteran and deals with PTSD. Our veterans deserve our help as they lay their lives on the line for our country.

Who was your role model?

My Dad. Hard to put in words but without him I would not be the man I am today.

Who is your favorite NFL team?

Green Bay Packers

Who is the most underrated teammate at your school?

Joe Camplin. He is our Tight End, and his blocking goes under the radar. He is a team guy through and through as he will do whatever is asked of him on the field without question.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

People who drive under the speed limit

Who is your favorite teacher ever?

Rick Croshaw. He was my principal, teacher, and football coach. He pushed me academically and through athletics.

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

One of the hardest moments to overcome was when my uncle passed away and I was 5 hours away preparing for a playoff football game. I was unable to be with my family in the hard times. I gained a new perspective regarding football and life.

If you could have any franchise restaurant in your house,what would it be?

Prairie Donair

What is your favorite snack food?

Black Licorice

What is your degree in?

Education

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

David Bakhtiari as he is my favorite Offensive lineman of all time.

My Great Grandfather John Klassen as I never met him but have heard stories of since I was a kid.

Wayne Gretzky as he is the Great One. A Canadian legend that needs no introduction.

What is your biggest weakness?

I am over critical of myself and that can lead to overthinking and beating myself up when I don’t need to.
