What is your name?

Wadel Louis

What is your Height/Weight?

6’2 230

What is your position?

MLB/OLB

Where do you play college football?

Lincoln University, PA

Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?

Off the field I take time to go back to my old high school and train with the younger guys, share my experiences and give feedback on what needs to be worked on.

What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?

Organic Chemistry

Where are you from?

Born in Port au Prince, Haiti, raised in Miami, Fl

Who is your role model, and why?

My role model is my mother. She raised me to be who I am today. She is smart, dedicated and strong willed. Everything I do is for her.

Did you play any other sports growing up?

Soccer and Basketball

Did you play any other positions in football?

I played tight end, defensive end and fullback

At your position, what separates you from others?

I am a player who attacks the ball, I keep a high motor in the field and make sure everyone is on the same page before every play.

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

When breaking down film, I look for specific tendencies from the offensive line, any signals given from the qb to receivers, what specific plays are ran out of certain formation, and how often a play is ran in the game.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

The toughest player I’ve over faced was Dalvin Cook in high school.

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

I would compare myself to Navarro Bowman. He is fast at the point of attack, physical and has a sense of  getting to the ball.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

I start off the day with a prayer. Once I get to the field I walk around to get a feel. Then listen to music until it’s time to play.

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

Being from a small school, people believe the competition level is less than a division 1 level. I have to show that i can compete, and that I am just as fast and as strong as a player coming from D1.

What is your biggest strength?

My biggest strengths are reading the run, getting to the ball, and analyzing plays.

What is your biggest weakness?

My biggest weakness is pass coverage

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

I am a hard working, self motivated and determined person. I will always give 110% or better no matter the circumstances.

Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up?

Ray Lewis

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali

With your first NFL paycheck what would you buy?

With my first check, I would buy my mother a new car.
