Volunteering in the community is important for the surrounding youth because it’s important for kids to have a positive influence to look up to.

The hardest class I took was a literature course. It was classical literature from the 1800s era and I had no interest which made it difficult.

The toughest competition I’ve came across have been from my teammates in practice everyday.

The biggest obstacle of my life was the death of my older brother. Losing a loved one is tough but having a strong family helps to get through hard times.

Chris KingDo you have any pre-game rituals? 

I really don’t have any pre-game rituals. I usually just go to the field earlier than normal to get a feel  of the field and to get warmed up. Nothing out of the ordinary.

My biggest strength is that I’m adept at getting defenders out of position at the top of my routes.

My biggest weakness is that I always wish i was quicker and I hope to improve on that.

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

If you were a GM I would tell you that my main approach in life is to get better each day, improve on what I did the day before, and that I won’t cause any problems on or off the field.

One of my favorite players to watch growing up was Dante Hall for the KC Chiefs.
