I played WR in high school.

At your position, what separates you from others?

I am a safety that cover and hit. I’ve played 2 years of college at corner and 2 years at safety so I am comfortable in either spot. Also I put a lot of time into studying football and understanding what teams are trying to exploit and why, because after football I want to be a coach.

When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?

When breaking down film I focus on tendencies, what the other team is trying to attack and who the players that they want the ball to go to are.

Markus Wheaton was my high school teammate and I’ve trained with him ever since but he has always been the hardest player to guard

Biggest obstacle was my inconsistency with playing football I’ve taken years off in between college and it has affected me negatively but I’ve been in it two years straight and I want to continue playing for a lot longer. I overcome that by seeing success from people close to me and noticing I have a bigger purpose

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

My pregame ritual includes listening to music and staying calm and relaxed and focusing on what I’ve learned about the other team so the game becomes slower.

Biggest strength is my dedication to preparation I want to know as much as possible so I can anticipate the game better

What is your biggest weakness?

Biggest weakness is trying to do others job for them instead of having faith in my teammates.

I would say that I will bring a dedication you have never seen before. My love for this game will show in my actions.

Who was your favorite player and NFL team growing up?

My favorite team was the Minnesota Vikings because Randy Moss was my favorite player growing up.

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?

My Mother who passed when I was 5 years old, Dick Lebeau because he is a defensive mastermind and I could learn so much, and Kobe Bryant because I could learn so much about life and determination  from him.
