Who is your role model, and why?

My mother because she taught me something that has helped me through my life journey and that is never give up on a dream or goal of yours no matter how dim it may look no matter how impossible it may seem, it’s always possible if you still believe.

Did you play any other sports growing up?

Yes, I have played basketball, baseball, soccer, ran track and tennis.

Did you play any other positions in football?

Yes, I played cornerback, runningback, wide receiver, and quarterback.

At your position, what separates you from others?

I would say my understanding of the game and understanding of what the offenses want to do. It allows me to prevent big plays while also making big plays for my team.

Not getting as many looks as bigger colleges would be the biggest obstacle other than that the rest on me.

My ability to make 3rd and 4th down stops getting offenses off the field.

cameronWhat is your biggest weakness?

My aggressiveness sometimes making the big hit isn’t ideal for every situation.

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

I’m the type of player you only have to show the play once, tell me what you want me to do in that play and it will be done. I dedicate myself to being the greatest player I can be no matter what my position is on the team I will perform at NFL quality.

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

My favorite player was Deion Sanders growing up and my favorite team is the Baltimore Ravens.
