Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
While I was training in Arizona I had the opportunity to volunteer to share my knowledge of the game with high school football players at Elevates football camp. Held by Chad Johnson the Chaplain for the Pittsburg Steeler’s and LA Dodgers. Being able to help the next generation of the game means a lot to me because many of them grew up the same way I did. I am a living testament that you can do anything you want to do as long as you set your mind to it.
What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?
American Lit 2

My mom is my role model because she showed me how to be ambitious, determined and she showed me how to work harder than the next man.

I ran track up until high school.
Did you play any other positions in football?
I played running back and cornerback up until high school.
At your position, what separates you from others?
My love for the game is like no other, I’m very passionate about what I do. I want to be the best at everything I do. Never will you see me settle for less. My killer instinct takes my game to another level. I use my speed and route running ability to separate me from others at my position.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
I always focus on the guy who will be guarding me. I study what kind of defender he is against other WR’s of my type. I pay close attention to different stances/techniques , signals communicated in the secondary for coverages.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
My grandma’s cancer, it tested my mind, body and soul. That was probably the toughest player I ever had to face. It showed me how to be strong , keep my faith and how to compete with my toughest opponent.
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
Doug Baldwin, we are both game changers, physicality, speed, route running and just being a player maker really says it all.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
Showing I belong playing football at high levels. Most of my life I was one of those guys over looked and underrated until I proved a lot of people wrong. I think about that every time I step on any field. I play with a chip on my shoulder every day. I developed a passion and love for the game and told myself I’ll never let no one tell me what I can do as long as I believe in me.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
I don’t have any special ritual is just sit back and visualize making that big play to change the game.
