When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
I look for Coverage tendencies on specific downs and yardage. Next I look for how discipline my opponent is, how early does he open up, how good is his backpedal, and how often does he gets hands on.

Larry Fitzgerald because he has an all around skill set for the position. I think I bring a lot of the same skills to the table

3 years ago I was a true Freshman at Georgia Tech and my 3rd game as a starter I tore my ACL vs BYU. 6 months out of surgery I re-tore the same ACL in May and got redshirted for the upcoming season. Through the hard times I remained faithful and worked harder than I’ve ever have. I came a new person, I matured, I became faster, stronger, and jumped higher than ever before. More importantly, I became a student to the game and mentally I was on another level.
