Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?
       •  I love that my hometown is known for producing athletes out the area of Georgia, So I loved competing with them while in high school. My hometown is 15minutes from the heart of Atlanta. I also love all the good wing spots.

List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning andPractice?
       • Strength, Film, then Practice. The reason for this order is because you have to you have to be physically prepared to compete at any level. Also because talent can only take you so far so putting the extra work off the field will only elevate your game. I feel the film is next because you not only need to be physically prepared but also mentally so knowing formations or what the team like to do on certain downs will make the game much easier. Then practice last reason I say this because it basically has to do with everything I talked about earlier but just the time to perfect your skill set.

What do you worry about, and why?
       • I am very family orient so with me going to school 7 hours away playing football. I have always been away from home, so my biggest worry is what if something happens while I’m at school. It’s nothing I will possibly be able to do or help.

Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?
       • When I let my GPA slipped my freshman year, the worst feeling ever because I wasn’t allowed to participate in spring practice I had to watch my teammates practice. Since then I have not been on academic probation or close, I study now and use all the school resources that are available to me.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?
        •        My competitiveness is what they will say, because I refuse to lose. I always push each other because the other team not going to take it easy on us. So like during 1v1 I will come up with if the DB’S lose we got extra running or push up or vice versa.

If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?
       • Family member, my family has sacrificed so much for me to be at the point I am today. Its only right I do just the same for them and once family always family.  If I have time to save the others I will try.

If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?
       • Liam Neeson- because he has that killer instinct same as I have on the field and he protective over his family.    

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