How many teams were recruiting you out of high school?
None really only played football my senior year
How did you choose your school?
I wanted an opportunity to be able to get my feet wet since i was new to the game so i ended going to a Juco (NDSCS) then got an opportunity at UND before transferring to Black Hills state university.

My role model would have to be my Dad he’s the strongest toughest guy i know and he’s the reason i am who i am today.

Did you play any other sports growing up?
Growing up i was a huge soccer and basketball fan played both growing up.
Did you play any other positions in football?
What separates me from others in my position is my size and speed. i use them to my advantage and also my hunger to get better each and everyday. i know i came into the game a little late so that drives me to what to learn more and more everyday.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
When breaking down film, I like to first look for the secondaries tendencies like what coverages they like to roll into, what the corner feel comfortable in whether it is press or off coverage and also, where the safeties are cause that usually gives up the coverage. I also like to look for who the playmakers are if any and who the weak link is and expose them.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
The Toughest player I ever faced would have to be CornerBack “Cariel Brooks” of Adams State not necessarily because he was tough but, he had a short memory on the field and regardless of if he was getting beat he always kept bringing it and i like that cause i have the same competitive spirit.
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
It would have to be A.J Green for the Bengals. He’s the reason I wear the #18 we both play the same in sense that he catches everything thats thrown he’s way, he has a slim tall frame but is still so physical and he’s speed and capability to blow the lid off any coverage and last but not least, he’s play-making ability.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
When I lost my mother a few years back it was like my world ended felt so lost and wanted to just throw in the towel but I realized that would be the easy way out and since then, I have used it as motivation it drives me to want to be the best Man i can possibly be for her and my family. it made it grow up quick.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?

My constant hunger to want to learn as much as I can about the game and also the need to perfect my craft because there is always room for improvement.
What is your biggest weakness?
Is accepting defeat, I am so competitive but, it drives me to want to get better everyday and I like that.
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I am a hardworking young man who’s going to give you everything he’s got always I’ll do whatever is needed to help that organization win games and also be involved in the community because its all about giving back and you won’t ever have to worry about me representing the organization in a negative way.
