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

• In my hometown Tulsa it is a big enough city where you can do a lot of things and move around the city with ease. One other thing that i also like about Tulsa is that even though it is a big city it is also small enough to where everyone knows each other so growing up I never really knew a stranger which is always a good feeling

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

• Practice number one because a game is nothing but practice underneath the lights and if you play well in practice you will play well in the game. Film study is next because to fully take advantage of all opportunities on the field an individual must understand what’s going on and that is all apart of film study. Strength and conditioning come last only because strength and conditioning is part of the game and if any player wants t to be successful he will handle strength and conditioning with no problem.
