Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?
- I’m from the DMV, I lived in Richmond Highway in Alexandria Virginia and now live in PG County Maryland. I love it there and I just love being able to be close to the city at all times which is Washington D.C.
List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?
- Practice because that’s where you perfect your craft everyday and compete and I’m a strong believer in how you practice is how you are going to play. Film 2nd because you will be going over what the offense does in practice for that week but at the same time it is good to have that film aspect in it because then you will already know what’s coming before it even happens so you can now react faster to plays, Strength and Conditioning last because that’s when you have all off season to make sure you stay in shape for the season, but at the same time it’s important for you to keep on it during the season so you can Atleast maintain what you had gained in the offseason.
What do you worry about, and why?
- The only thing I really worry about is letting myself down or my family down and only because I except a lot out of myself and I know my family does as well
Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?
- I didn’t play to my potential during a big game called magic city classic, I just went back and worked harder in practice and made sure I did everything 100% to bounce back that following week. Couldn’t let my teammates down again. Wasn’t a good feeling.
What do your teammates say is your best quality?
- My size and length, hard for receivers to really make a play because of my height and block because of my length and because of that it helps me make plays on the ball more because of my length

- Its a couple.. Willie Quinn from Southern and Martez Carter from Grambling is really the only names I can think off from the top of my head

Room, desk, and car – which do you clean first?

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

If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?
- Iron Man, for some reason Iron Man is my favorite character. He live to me.
Tell me about your biggest adversity in life and how you’ve dealt with or overcome it?
- Mmmm good question but playing football you get put in a lot of adverse situations but at the same time you overcome it quick because it’s always a next play mentality. So I can’t really pick a real adverse situation I was in.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
- My most embarrassing moment, I can’t really recall anything but probably like tripping over something while walking around a lot of people

What player who had his career derailed by off-field issues do you feel for the most and why?
- Colin Kaepernick because he was doing a silent protest to what is basically still going on today and now he can’t even get a shot back in the League still being a very good football player.
