At your position, what separates you from others? 

What separates me is I am not afraid of who ever is lined up across from me because I know going to win the battle/play. I keep over the little things and the big things. Competing and knowing where I stand among others is a must. I love proving to others that I am better and I make my team better.

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

As a wide out I look for where the defense is lacking. By doing that this makes it easier to expose them by better play calling. Finding open spots in another teams game plan is what I look for.

One of the biggest obstacles was when I was 15 years old my families home caught fire and burned to the ground. I over came this by being there for my family during this tough and knowing they can depend on me. I picked up a job just to help my parents out. 

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

I have to wear my game socks because every time I didn’t my team lost. Also I have to do some type ball drill. It can playing with a tennis ball, catch, just about anything

What is your biggest strength? 

One of my biggest strengths is being reliable. During games when my team needed me the most I was able to step and a deliver.

I weakness is my fear of defeat. From a team or personal stand point I do not like losing

Hussonfoot100816 010.JPGIf I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say? 

I’m reliable, team player, and coach-able. I do what it takes to improve myself on and off the field. Being able to play football is privilege and I don’t take anything for granted

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

Calvin Johnson was my favorite player. My favorite team are the Colts

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