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

My role model has to be God and my parents (Karen and Micheal) without him I am nothing.

I ran track a lot as a young boy.

Did you play any other positions in football?

In high school I played wide receiver until I transitioned to safety my junior/senior year.

At your position, what separates you from others?

At my position what separates me from others is my ability to play in the box, cover the slot, and play deep third safety.

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

When breaking down film I always look at what the quarterback and his eyes, and whether he’ll stare down a lot of routes or look me off. Also I check to see the strengths of their wide outs as far as how fast or quick they may be off the ball as well as rout running so I can know what I am dealing with. I also look at the running back to determine what style of back he is.

cammWho was the toughest player you ever faced?

The toughest player I ever faced was Devon Paye, running back at West Texas A&M.

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

If I could compare me to another player it would be Calvin Pryor. He comes up and makes the solo tackle just like I  capable of and he also makes plays on the ball.

What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?

The biggest obstacle in my life would be when I had to attend a military school for junior college football. It was just a tough two years having to deal with military stuff then football stuff as well. But the guys I met there are my lifetime friends that I can hit up whenever.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

No pregame rituals just music and getting my mind focused and body loose.

What is your biggest strength?

My biggest strength would have to be when I roll down from safety into the action around he box area.

What is your biggest weakness?

My biggest weakness would have to be dealing with the big guys on the offensive line. I forget sometimes that they are about 100-150 more pounds than me so I have to be a bit more smart when taking on a 300 pound lineman.

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

As a football player that’s what you are going to get a football player. I feel like football is football and if you know how to play the game then you can be very successful no matter what your 40 time is or vertical jump. If I were given the opportunity for a chance there will never be a day, meeting, or practice that I will take lightly because I know that this the big boy business.

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

My favorite player growing up had to be Reggie Bush at USC he really was electric, he was very special. My favorite NFL team growing up was the Dolphins as well.

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

If I could have dinner with three people it would be my best friend Clim, Steveo, and Tiera.

What will be the first big item you buy once you are in the NFL?

The first big item will a nice house for my mom and dad they deserve anything I earn without them and God this journal would have been dead a long time ago.
