West Virginia Wesleyan
Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
I visited a hospice with my former team and college Delaware State, and we were special guest at the hospice annual ball. I had the chance to put a smile on patients face that had a terminal illness. It made me realize i have nothing in life to complain about.

My mother, she is the hardest working woman alive.

Basketball. Played basketball my entire life and one year in college before converting to football.
Did you play any other positions in football?
Defensive Tackles and Tight End
At your position, what separates you from others?
My run stopping ability is very good. I tend to always get my hands inside tackles which makes me easier to shed blocks at a quicker rate.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
Specific plays in different personnel, lineman tendencies, and weaknesses. I also examine if the quarterback gives away his snap count.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Jonathan Burgess Offensive Guard Liberty University.

Need to get stronger overall in the weight room.
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
You will not find a harder worker and better student of the game then myself. Any role that I am put in relating to the team I will do my best to fulfill that role. Sure I come from a small school but with my work ethic, natural size, ability and also being able to be coached at a high level, success is and will be the only option. You will not regret giving me a chance on your football club.
