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

• Film study is the most important, I say that because watching film gives you the opportunity to study your opponent, and also allows you to see other ways to be a better player. Strength and conditioning comes next. In order to compete at the highest level your body needs proper training. Practice is last, but is very important. What’s being discussed in film study will translate to the field. Practice is where things get corrected, and get you ready for game day.

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

The biggest adversity in my life would have to be getting cut from Towson because of grades and not performing on the field. Football was taking away from me for two years. I enrolled into community colleges to get my gpa up over the two years. Got my gpa high enough to get accepted into East Stroudsburg. So after sitting out for two years I’m already 23 at the time I come into camp and do everything I needed to do to make the team and 4 quarter 2 minutes left of the first game I get in and after my first touchdown in 3 years, the next drive I get tackled out of bounds and rupture my right Achilles. I was unsure how serious the injury was and I didn’t care all I wanted to know was how long I would be out for and they told me that it’s a season ending injury. All I could do was cry and call my mom. That’s when I knew things couldn’t get no worse. I would ask my self every night why this happen to me. But something turned on inside of me to do everything in my power to get back on the field. With the support from trainers,coaches,teammates,and family I was able to come back off this injury better than ever. 

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

• The play I ruptured my Achilles  August 31 2016 

What song best describes your work ethic?

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

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

• I rather be respected, people who are respected live by morals and wouldn’t let nothing compromise those morals    

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

• I hate to lose 

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

•My mom and my children have the biggest influence on my life. My mom showed me how to provide for my family, she showed me nothing in this world is giving you have to take every opportunity. My kids drive me to be a better man and a father, they have humbled me so much as a young man, and everything I do is for them.
