What is your name?
What is your Height/Weight?
What is your position?
Where do you play college football?
University Of Maine
How many teams were recruiting you out of high school?
How did you choose your school?
I chose Maine because I loved the family environment in the locker room. I felt this was a place I could see myself reaching my max potential.
Where are you from?
I was born in Seattle Washington but grew up in Long Island, NY.
Who is your role model, and why?
My biggest role model has to be my father! He taught me that if you ever want to succeed in life you have to get up and go get it. Nothing in life is handed to you.
Have any scouts met with you yet, and if so what are they saying?
Scouts come in and out of our facilities, but don’t usually talk to the players. Only the coaches and trainers.
Did you play any other sports growing up?
Growing up I’ve played just about every sport from soccer to hockey, basketball and I was an all american track runner in high school.
Did you play any other positions in football?
I also was an all conference kick returner and played controller on punt return team as well.
At your position, what separates you from others?
What separates me from other guys is my elusiveness when I have the ball. I’m very strong for my position; no one man could take me down himself.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
When watching the film I take the time to breakdown and evaluate every defender from the corners to the safeties. When breaking down the corners I like to see how aggressive they are with their hands at the line. I like to see if the DB has an aggressive funnel in cover 2 or not. If the DB is in cover 4 I like to see if he is patient in his back pedal or if he turns and runs fast. When watching the Safeties I like to see how aggressive they are in the run game. And I like to see the alignment of the safety which gives away the coverage depending on how wide they are.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
The toughest corners I’ve faced have to be either Axel Ofori or Kendall James. They are both NFL quality corners and going up against them every day in practice only helped me master my craft.
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
The biggest obstacle I had to overcome in my life was not making varsity my sophomore year when all my friends did. Ever since that day I played with a chip on my shoulder.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
My pre game ritual is to always put my left sock on my right foot and my right sock on my left foot. And I always have to have the music blasting with my beats.
What is your biggest strength?
My biggest strength is my speed and my ability to make people miss.
What is your biggest weakness?
My biggest weakness is my height.
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
Im the most ambitious person you will ever meet!
Who was your favorite player growing up?
It’s a tie between Marshall Faulk or Tiki Barber.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
Muhammad Ali, Mahatma Gandhi, Jerry Rice
