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

My hometown is Nashville, TN nicknamed Music city. What I love most about my city is that it’s a big city that you can still get a small town experience out of.

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

Film study, Practice and Conditioning. Film study is the most important because it allows you to diagnose plays before the snap and understand the weaknesses, tendencies and strengths of your opponent in order to put yourself in the best position to make a play to help your team win.

What do you worry about, and why? 

I worry about not doing the right things off of the field because I want to be a good person and community leader outside of the game.

Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?

I failed at grading out at my position coaches standard during spring ball. I reacted by going to his office and looking over practice film with him to see my mistakes. I overcame the situation by meeting with my QB an hour before practice and before film study to go over my mistakes and mentally work through them.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

Hardwork and dedication to the game.
 
Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?

JT Luper

Fashion designer

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

My room.

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

I would save three strangers. It would be selfish of me to save my family member just for me and cause 3x the heartache to the families of the other three people.

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

I would be Creed because of the heart he showed after getting knocked out.

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

The biggest adversity in my life was losing family members, playing collegiate football, being a fulltime employee and raising a family all at the same time and have to create time and balance for each one.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

Falling asleep after class in a school building and waking up to security telling me that they were locking up the building for the night. I had been sleep for 5 hours.

My cousin. Because he was killed a year ago and I never got a chance to tell him how much I loved him.

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

Club paradise  

Who is the most overrated player in the NFL? 

I dont think there is any player in the NFL that is overrated. Just to play at that level requires day in and day out dedication and skills.

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

Respected because it means that you are being a man and making good decisions not necessarily popular decisions.

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

Ray Rice because he made a terrible decision but has never recieved a second chance. 

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

I love to win.
