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

I grew up in Bear Delaware, what I love most is that its a small area so everyone pretty much knows everyone and support each other.

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

First I would say is strength and conditioning because preparing your body physically throughout the week is very important for game day. Next would be the film because throughout the week you have to learn your opponent and their different tendencies. Lastly is practice this is when you go out and get reps and get put into certain situations that you’ve see on film.

What do you worry about, and why?

I worry about my family most, everything I do is for them and eventually getting to the point where im able to provide for them.

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

I failed a test before, I was disappointed with my self but I overcame it by taking more notes and studying harder.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

My desire to succeed and work ethic, im all about working to be great and perfecting my craft. If its not benefiting me into becoming successful I’m probably not doing it.

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

My twin working me everyday in practice.

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

I would get back into running track, I was a state champ in the 200m, 4×1, and 4×2… If no sports at all I would get into training athletes and eventually have my own training facility.

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

Definitely my room, I dont leave my dorm without it being clean, and when im back home before I go anywhere I make sure my room is clean because thats where you lay my head at night, when you feel comfortable you sleep better.

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

My family because our loyal runs deep and we’ve been through everything together. I even have a tattoo that says “Family Over Everything”

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

Will Smith  playing Muhammad  Ali because of his conviction and how he always stood his ground

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

Dealing with my MomMom passing away right before my senior year high school. Going through that experience made me numb to a lot. I got through it by prayer, that’s all you can really do.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

ulling my hamstring and losing the race for my relay team in highschool, we were in first place and I was the anchor.

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

Getting a pic 6 in the FCS senior bowl game that was my first touchdown of my college career.

What song best describes your work ethic?

Dream chasers – Meek Mill

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

Definitely Non-physical, knowledge takes you a long way in this game.

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

My Mommom… While on her death bed “she said i cant go yet, I still have to see my grandsons on tv playing football every Sunday” talking about me and my brother.

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

Selbyville

Who is the most overrated player in the NFL?

I don’t want to discredit anyone for the work they put in to get where they are at.

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

I would rather be respected, being liked only takes you but so far.

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

Tyrann Matieu when he was at LSU, I’m glad he was able to turn his situation around

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

I hate to lose, I expect to win.

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

My parents, them waking up early every morning for work to provide for our family is what keeps me going.
