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

• 1) Film study, 2) Practice, 3) Strength and conditioning. Film study is first because you have to study the game, it is important to know your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses and it is also very important to critique yourself as well, my Dad always told me at a young age that football is more mental than physical. The practice is second because whatever you are studying or preparing for schematically is very important, it is a must to be prepared and to go work on what you watched on film and the new game plan for the week. Strength and conditioning third, that is just important as the first two you gotta be in shape especially when the 4th Quarter come you gotta have the dawg in you to fight it out and finish and that comes from the weight room, them team workouts will bring the beast out of you! 

What do you worry about, and why?

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

• I would say my Freshman year at the University of Maryland we were playing West Virginia University, and witnessing WR Kevin White going for over 200 Receiving yards with 10 or more catches. that probably was the best performance I have witnessed because that is something that is hard to do and to do that on a secondary that we had, just have to credit when it is due.

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

• If I wasn’t playing football I would be a sports Journalist.

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

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

• The Name of my Club would be called “Love Life Club”

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL? 

• I would say Pittsburgh Steelers Safety Sean Davis is one of the players I believe is underrated. Being able to watch him play and to see his hard work and work ethic and for him taking me under his wing soon as I stepped on campus for the 2-3 years was great. m He flies to the ball, He can play man, he can play in the box, He can cover slots, etc. how he prepares himself mentally is a lot of things that go unnoticed as well and to be able to witness that is just amazing.

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

• I would rather be respected, why? Because I was raised big on Loyalty and respect, just because someone like that doesn’t mean they Respect you.

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

• I love Winning, I HATE LOSING!
