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

I don’t normally compare my style of play to others, but if I had to choose I would select Chris Harris Jr. of the Denver Broncos. I would choose him because he was once underrated in his physical style of play.

The biggest obstacle I had to face was forgiving people in my life. I overcame this by continuing to work harder and realizing that none of us are perfect.
