What is your name?
Where do you play college football?
I play at Oklahoma Panhandle State University
How many teams were recruiting you out of high school?
I was recruited by TCU , Iowa State, then I talked to some JUCO’s like trinity valley
Where are you from?
I lost my looks from all my other schools because I struggled with keeping my GPA up so I saw OPSU a chance to prove my self and getting a chance to play football.

Yes, I played basketball, soccer, an ran track.
Did you play any other positions in football?
I played CB,SS,and OLB
At your position, what separates you from others?
I feel that I am physical but also smart when it come to recognizing what an offense is trying to do pre snap. I also have a 40 inch vertical that I doubt most would have at my position and it’s good for defending against the short passes and screens.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
Well I look for what tendencies do the offensive lineman have and see of they give away a run or pass play before they snap of the ball. Also any weakness they might have to moves the other defensive players are using against them.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
I would have to say Trey Williams
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
I would say I’m like Kameron Chancellor just not as fast but how he comes down hill and tackles I would say is how I play.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
Losing my little sister at a young age. I got through it by me and my family sticking together and praying to God.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
I have to listen to slow jams like R&B before every game. But also pray to God thanking him for another opportunity to play football.
What is your biggest strength?
I am physical and smart and versatile when it come to playing other positions on the field.
What is your biggest weakness?
My speed just because I’m not just blazing fast.
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I am a fast learner and I have great work ethic, I will never take an opportunity for granted. I will get the most out of whatever it is I do and I will do it with full effort.
Who was your favorite player and NFL team growing up?
I would say Ray Lewis just because of the type of leader he was on and off the field and how he thanks God for everything. I am a Houston Texans fan.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
I would choose my little sister, Ray Lewis, Kevin Hart
