•  Film, Practice, Strength, and conditioning. I say film first because you gotta know your opponent in and out what from they favorite play to their favorite playmaker in all aspects of the game special teams, offense and defense

Practice second because it makes you better. That’s where you improve and learn from your mistakes. Third strength and conditioning because you need to have that physical shape to help deal with some of the punishment I put out lol 

What do you worry about, and why?

•  I worry about my well being mostly and if I’m going to get that chance to show I being in the league, you know you always got folks telling you this and that about yourself but I like actions over words I wanna prove I belong.

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

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

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

•  Definitely Denzel Washington, most of the movies are iconic it inspires that’s what I strive to do

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

•  When I was little me and my siblings and mom separated, I went to grandma house because she was the only one that would let me stay with her lol I was bad. My brother and sister got to stay with my aunt so it was hard for me. And where my Grandma stayed it wasn’t that good of a neighborhood helped me learn quickly and that’s where I picked up my first football. I overcame it with football.
