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

Looking for any certain holes in the defense or something that I can see our offense can execute and attack for success. 

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

There has been a lot of tough competitors that I have went against so I cannot pinpoint just one because there as been many. 

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

I would say Ben Roethlisberger or Aaron Rodgers. The reason I compare myself to them is because having the ability to keep the play alive if things break down and make plays happen outside of pocket if need be. 

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

Breaking my collarbone my Sophomore year of college. Ended up having to get surgery and miss the last 3 games of my soph year. I overcame this with hard work in the offseason and staying in weight room to get back in shape to continually grow as a player.

The only pre game ritual I have is to find my family and point to them before I take the field.

My biggest strength would be leading by example and motivating others to become the best players they can. 

What is your biggest weakness?

Biggest weakness would maybe be could be more vocal but like I said I am more of a lead by example.

I would say I would be the hardest worker on the team. I am a competitor and thrive for the most successful football player I can possible be. Also, would do anything in order to give my team the best chances of winning. 

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

My favorite player growing up was Kurt Warner. The reason he was my favorite was he was a local hometown hero. He came from a small town like I do and not much success has came from my hometown. 

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

Peyton Manning, Lebron James, and Dan Marino 

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

The big item I would buy would be a big house in the country for my parents. As much as they have done for my whole life I would like to give back to them as much as they have given me!
