Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?
- I’m from Fayetteville North Carolina it is a gritty place that I am thankful I grew up in it prepared me for Life.
- Strength and Conditioning would be the first on my list if your body is not prepared you will not make it through a season which hurts your team the most. Film study would go second because of its impact on the course of the game. If I know someone’s moves for every down and situation I can dominate them all four quarters. With out watching film of the opponent you can not practice.
- Practice is set in place to go over gameplans moves and techniques in live action to simulate how to best beat the opponent without good film study you can not have a good practice.
What do you worry about, and why?
- I use to worry but I realized everything is in Gods hands and if I set my heart on the things of him I will make it through anything.
Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?
- My senior year I was not eligible. I was in danger of losing all of my financial aid because of it. It happened fast and I was not prepared I was on the verge of losing everything I have worked for. While I was making plans to do something else with my life God made a way for me to stay in school redshirt and come back for a fifth year and finish out my college career.
