What is your name?
What is your Height/Weight?
What is your position?
Where do you play college football?
Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
I would say the time my high school teammates and myself gave food to the less fortunate. Along with providing meals, we got to play football with the kids that were with their families. Definitely one of the coolest moment off the field.
What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?
Where are you from?
Who is your role model, and why?
My role model would be my father. He holds this title because he is strong, determined, kind, and loving man. He has overcame a lot of obstacles in his life, but the thing is, he never gave up. His determination and drive have influenced me and made the person I am today
Did you play any other sports growing up?
Basketball, baseball, and tennis
Did you play any other positions in football?
At your position, what separates you from others?
My height and length I believe stand out among a crowd. Along with the way I use my hands for rushing the passer and also pursuing the ball
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
First, I look to see what formation they’re in and I look at the o linemen stance to see if they are about to run or pass block. I also look to see if it’s about to be a pulling guard or center for a power play or a counter play. I check down for down blocks, base blocks, pass blocks and doubles teams on each play. I study the o linemen to see if he’s a patient blocker or a aggressive blocker
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
I would say my teammate Lavonte Heights because he is very good with his feet and he has the same wing span as me, so it’s always a battle going against him
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
What is your biggest strength?
What is your biggest weakness?
My biggest weakness would be staying low on double team blocks
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
That I am a hard worker, a competitor, and you’re guaranteed to see me make plays each time you put me out on that field
Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up?
My favorite player was Michael Vick and my favorite team was the Atlanta Falcons
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
