Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?

Guttenberg, New Jersey, a small city in Hudson County New Jersey. The thing I love most about it is how much pride everyone that lives here has about our city. 

 List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?

I believe they are all equally as important. If your lacking in any of the three you aren’t prepared and it will be tough to be as best you can be. 

What do you worry about, and why?

Being successful and being able to help put my family in a better situation. It’s why I do what I do.  Give me an example of when you failed at something.

How did you react and how did you overcome failure?

Having to go to a junior college and essentially start over. It was a very humbling process and helped me grow up. It helped me grow into the man that I am today. I don’t take anything for granted.  

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

The energy and vocal leadership I can bring to the field whether it’s practice or a game.  

Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?

Charles Mosley former Tennessee Vol who now plays for Austin Peay 

What would your career be if you couldn’t play football? 

Coaching is something I always wanted to do. The X’s and O’s part of the game is something I always valued and had fun with. 

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

My room, my car doesn’t really get dirty at all and I currently do not own a desk. 

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

My family, I would do anything for any one of my family members.  

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

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

What is your most embarrassing moment?

Getting yelled at in peewee football for talking back to my stepdad.  

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

Making a huge 3rd down stop in the 4th quarter against Dayton our rivals my junior year.  

What song best describes your work ethic?

Meek Mill- Dreamchasers 

What is the most important trait you can have (Physical or Non-Physical) to help you succeed at the next level?

My Football IQ, I’ve always taken pride in that since a young football player. 

If you could bring one person back from the dead for one day, who would it be and why?

My uncle, so I could let him know again how much I love him and so he could watch me play one last time. 

If you were to open a dance club, what would you name it?

Floski’s 

Who is the most overrated player in the NFL? 

I honestly don’t think anyone in the League is overrated. Everyone that made it to that level worked extremely hard to be there.  

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

Respected, I don’t really need people to like me I’m not interested in that. I’m interested in getting my job done and being the best person that I can be for my family.  

What player who had his career derailed by off-field issues do you feel for the most and why?

Ricky Williams, I felt like they could have found help for his addiction.  

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

I love to win, but I absolutely hate to lose. As I’ve grown older I have learned to grow from my losses.  

Who has been the biggest influence on your life and explain why?

My stepfather, he showed me the true definition of hard work. He showed me that if you really wanted something you had to work and strive for It no matter what the circumstance.
