6’0 280

What is your position? 

Offensive Line

Where do you play college football?

William Paterson University

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

I went to my high school and helped my high school offensive line coach with drills and blocking schemes to help his new players get prepared for this past season.

What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?

Business Stats

Where are you from?

Bayonne, NJ

Who is your role model, and why?

I would have to say my mom is my role model, because she raised as single parent and when times got hard she always managed to pull through

Did you play any other sports growing up?

I played basketball up until high school and then stopped to focus on football

Did you play any other positions in football?

In high school I played defensive line as well

At your position, what separates you from others?

I would have to say my pad level and my knowledge of the position. Once I am on a block I don’t stop until the whistle blows.

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

First, I look at players tendencies and their moves they use, whether they are push pull type of defensive lineman or a player who just like me to bull rush, then i study the teams stunts and slants depending on the down and distance.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

Courtel Jenkins when we played St. Anthony’s in high school, he currently plays at the University of Miami

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

Weston Richburg, New York Giants

After my freshman year of college I transferred schools and missed a year of football, it helped me realize I have to keep my grades up and to not take anything for granted.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

I usually listen to music and like to keep to myself, when it’s time to leave the locker room I always like making sure I’m one of the last people out.

What is your biggest strength?

Run blocking

What is your biggest weakness?

I tend to lean sometimes and get over aggressive

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

I’m a hard worker who will give everything I got, I love the position and am willing to learn and be coached to get better every day. If giving a shot you would get an old school, hard nose football player who would do anything to perfect his craft.

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

My favorite team is the New York Giants, and my favorite player is Odell Beckham because of how exciting he is to watch.

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

My mom, my dad, and grandmother
