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

I’ve done a lot of pretty cool things to give back to the community, but one of the coolest things that I’ve done was go to the Diamonds Children’s Hospital of Tucson Arizona. While doing routinely weekly visits I ended up creating a bond with a certain group of kids that were in there long term. So one of the weeks that I ended up going  I made them journals by hand decorated them to their liking. The look on their faces when they received them was priceless and it was something I will never forget.

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

At the University of Arizona I majored in healthcare management . Most of the classes that I took were fairly hard but I fell in love with the process of learning more and more about the major I was in. So to answer that question directly, all the classes I took  had difficulty to them  but I am ended up enjoying the process

Where are you from?  

I am from Fort Lauderdale Florida

Who is your role model, and why?

My role model would be my son although he is only seven months old. I  learn so much from him on a daily basis.  Having him around has made me so much of a better person and he is constantly making me become a better man little does he know it.

Did you play any other sports growing up?


Did you play any other positions in football?


At your position, what separates you from others?

The main thing that separates me from others at the position of (OLB) is that I’m very athletic, and I’ve played several positions besides linebacker. My coverage skills are on point, and the fact that I have played this position for a short period of time should intrigue scouts. I will continue to grow.

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

Tendencies for the most part. After I finish looking at tendencies of players that I will be playing against I then look at play frequency. What plays are being ran out of what formations? This gives you an idea during the game when you could see certain sets.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

Coming from the PAC 12 week in and week out you are playing against some of the best players so this is definitely a tough question but I would say Christian McCaffrey this season during that game I posted 8 tackles 2 TFLS and a sack.

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

Deonne Bucannon

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

Going from division one to junior college and earning a scholarship right back to a bigger division one school it was definitely the biggest obstacle. I overcame it with perseverance prayer and hard work

Do you have any pre-game rituals?


What is your biggest strength?

Strength and speed

What is your biggest weakness?


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

I am a player who is a hard worker and truly loves the game of football. To your team I’ll bring athleticism speed and strength at my position. I am a player who could play multiple positions, and also would be a gem on special teams. Without a doubt I am a player you would love to have on your team

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

Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins
