Who is your role model, and why? 

My Father is my role model because he made sacrifices for us and taught us many things to become successful and to be a better man in life.

Did you play any other sports growing up? 

Yes. Basketball, Baseball, and Track

Did you play any other positions in football?

 I played Running back.

At your position, what separates you from others? 

I Love to play press Man to Man coverage. Many players don’t like to play press man to man because that consist of many things like being patient, eyes in the right place, and good foot work. Another thing that separates me from others is that I can play every position at DB.

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

I look at how receivers run certain routes and how they react to certain coverage. I also like to look at the QB to see how they go through their progression and how they reacts to certain coverage’s.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

 Derrick Washington I believe that was his name, but it was my sophomore year he played running back for Tuskegee.

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why? 

Darelle Revis, because Darelle Revis is a press man to man corner that will take your best receiver out the game. He’s a Shutdown corner that can also tackle, and play zone. Darelle Revis is just a complete Cornerback and I feel like that’s me.

What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?

I had a lot of obstacles I had to overcome in my life but the one I can think of is me going into my senior year last year and founding out I couldn’t play because I was Ineligible so I had to sit out an year. That situation made me a lot hungrier but I took that time to work on my craft, get faster, and get stronger.

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

Yes I listen to R&B music.

As a small school football player what obstacles do you feel you have to overcome?

I feel like you have to dominate this level, look good on film, have stats, and show out on your pro day.

What is your biggest strength? 

Press man to man coverage and being a playmaker.

What is your biggest weakness? 

Not being A vocal leader.

If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say? 

“ I Love this game and I will not be outworked”

Die Hard Steelers fan and Troy Polamalu.
