Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?
  • My hometown is very small and everyone almost knows each other. I love that it’s small simply because it’s peaceful and there isn’t a lot going on.
List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?
  • Practice, film study, the strength, and conditioning. Practice first because that is where all your craft and mistakes are being made. The film is after practice because you watch your mistakes or see techniques that could improve your game. Strength and conditioning last because I believe football is a mental game but you can’t be weak by any means.
What do you worry about, and why?
  • I try not to worry about anything. If it is out of my control then I know that it’s in God’s plan.
Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?

Room, desk and car – which do you clean first?
  • Room, desk, then the car.

If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?

  • The three strangers. I don’t think anyone’s life is more important than someone’s else but, I believe saving 3 lives is less selfish than saving 1.

If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?

  • Denzel Washington in the equalizer because, he is smooth and he don’t play around with the people in the movie.

Tell me about your biggest adversity in life and how you’ve dealt with or overcome it?
