I have played a multitude of sports aside from football. Basketball, wrestling, and track & field were things I did the most often.

The toughest player I played against in College was Obo Okoronkwo (RS SR. DE/LB Oklahoma). The toughest player I practiced against was Poona Ford (SR. DL Texas).
Are you listening to music before a game? If so, what?
If I am listening to music before a game, it is some form of R&B or 90s & 2000s rap, that is what I jam to.
Do you have any superstitions before a game? If so, what are they?
I do not really have any superstitions, but I do like to follow a routine & it changes from year to year depending on a variety of things.
Who is your role model & why?
I do not really have a singular role model. I tend to pick things negative & positive from my peers & elders & try to mold myself from that.
While in College, what was your favorite & least favorite class?
My favorite class that I have ever taken in all my years of school was Game Plan for Winning at Life taught by Daron Roberts. My least favorite was this Anthropology class.
Outside of Football, what was your favorite experience while in College?
I did not do a whole lot in College, but it was probably bonding with some of my teammates away from football.
Growing up, who was your favorite NFL Team & NFL player, & why?
Growing up I did not have a favorite team but I always watched the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys & Philadelphia Eagles because my Dad played for those teams. My favorite player growing up was Michael Vick. I am not sure why exactly but there was something about the way he ran & could still bomb the ball, which amazed me.
If you could be in any movie of your choice, what would it be & what character would you play?
If I could be in any movie, it would have to be a superhero movie! I am huge on comics & things like that. I would want to play Spider-Man, Wolverine or Black Panther. The Black Panther one is pretty new & I think it is great that there is now a superhero movie for little black kids to look up to & have representation in Hollywood.
If you could have dinner with three (3) people, dead or alive, who are they?
I would love to have dinner with Barack Obama, Martin Luther King Jr. & my Nan. I miss her.
If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose & why?
I feel my dinner choices fall under the historical figure question as well, MLK & Barack Obama.
Who is your favorite superhero & why?
My favorite superhero is Spider-Man or Goku. Actually, I do not think Goku counts as a superhero, so Spider-Man.
What is your definition of hard work?
My definition of hard work is pushing to the point where you get tired then wringing out all leftover energy to push past your current threshold.
What is the most unexpected lesson you learned while in College?
The most important lesson I learned in College is that priorities & patience can make or break your day.
Which would you prefer, three (3) wishes over five (5) years or one (1) wish right now?
One wish right now. Wish for more wishes obviously.
What is something you wish you could go back & tell yourself as a High School Freshman?
If I had the chance I would go back & tell myself do not be scared to venture out. There is a whole World out there that you are going to miss & a ton of people you will not get the chance to meet.
