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

I am a smart and instinctive player who understands the game at all 3 levels, and phases. I’m able to plug and play in multiple positions because I’m able to decipher the techniques, alignments, and assignments for each position. I attack the game with respect and devote my time and energy into training, film study, and recovery. I am constantly trying to outdo myself and become the best version I could possibly be. 

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

They should know my attitude and approach towards the game of football and life in general. It’s personal for me that I treat this game with respect and put in the work necessary to be the best. I understand that the lessons of this game translate to life. I am constantly working to outdo myself. Whether it’s rewatching film of myself, practice, extra workouts, recovery, being a good person, I understand that it all translates to the field and in life. 

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

Anything revolving children. Places like hospitals and shelters. If we can change the youth while they are young the impact means more. Children have a lot more room for dreaming and hope. As you get older it seems like the dreamers are looked at crazy until they do it. 

Who was your role model? 

A role model for me growing up was my God Mothers son. His name is Norman Jr. He really I would say helped sparked my love for sports and made me better because he was older and bigger so it’s different playing with someone your age. Just throwing the football with each other, him taking me to get McDonalds, the way he always did what was asked of him, how much of a stand up man he is. It really helped teach me the right way with the wrong all around me. He really kept me grounded. 

Who is your favorite NFL team?

Dallas Cowboys

Who is the most underrated teammate at your school? 

I just got to Valdosta in May so I’m honestly not sure.

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

Being late.

Who is your favorite teacher ever?

My favorite teacher ever is Ms. Gillians, Social Work, Bowie State. She tolerated no non-sense, expected my best, loved hard, and educated me a lot. 

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

Through all of my trials and tribulations I’d have to say the hardest moment in my life I’ve had to overcome so far was having a conversation with my father after 20 years about why he was not in my life. I held a lot of hurt and emotions from not having a father. I believe my life would be a lot different if I had one so to finally gather an understanding on the situation was really life changing in a lot of ways. I became a better man and healed a lot. 

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

Mission BBQ. 

What is your favorite snack food? 

Oatmeal Creampie and Candy. 

What is your degree in? 


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

Sean Taylor, Tom Brady, Denzel Washington

What is your biggest weakness? 

I feel like myself is my biggest weakness. I can’t let up on myself in any part of my game or become complacent because there is always another level to reach.
