Basketball, and track.

Did you play any other positions in football?

I have great hands, great speed, and great routes. I’m pretty good at the jump ball for a short WR.

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

When breaking down film, I watch the DB’s feet and how he is in coverage. Every DB has a weakness just like every WR has one. I’m good at reading a defensive coverage,and that the biggest part about being a WR and getting open.

I’ve played a lot of tough football players, Being from Rock Hill, SC, but Stephon Gilmore was the toughest.

I would compare myself to 2 WRs. Antonio Brown, and Emmanuel Sanders. Both of those guys are under 6’0 tall. They both have great routes and great speed.

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

The biggest obstacle I’ve overcome is not attending a Division 1 school. Being the #1 JUCO Wr and attending a small school really got to me, but having a great support system and being dedicated helped me overcome these obstacles.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

No pre-game rituals, I usually just listen to music.

My biggest strength to me would be my hands.
