What is your position? 

DL

Where do you play college football? 

Shepherd University

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?

Biology 

Where are you from? 

Richmond, VA

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? 

TE

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? 

Calais Campbell because of his size and the way he uses his length and speed to play make plays. 

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

My biggest obstacle that I’ve overcame was when I had to sit out of school for a whole year and had to get a job to provide for my family and myself. I was still constantly working out everyday hoping for another opportunity to play on somebody’s team and I got that opportunity with Shepherd.

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

I always go out on the field before our team warm up and stare at the field to remind myself how bless I am to have another opportunity to play football.

What is your biggest strength? 

My biggest strengths is my ability to get off blocks and using my hands and length very well against the run or pass block. Also my awareness. 

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? 

My father, Martin Luther King, and  Ray Lewis.

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

My momma a house!
