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

• I’m from the Good Life city of Albany, Ga. My city is filled with a lot of sport-oriented people. It’s also filled with a lot of people that try and better you, and look out for you in the future.

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

• I would have to say Strength & Conditioning because you have to be physically fit to perform on an every week basis.

Film Study would come next because you have to see what different teams are going to throw at you, especially as a receiver the linebackers and defensive backs all work together to disguise the coverage.

The practice would be last to reap what you have learned from film to perfect your craft and actually get a feel of the open or dead areas.

What do you worry about, and why?

• I always feel that everything happens for a reason it’s all God’s Plan. I’m just staying the course.

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

• I was given an opportunity to try an join an organization and fell short a point on my GPA. I hit the books way harder in the summer and fall and got another opportunity in the spring and had well over the required GPA to join. Now I’m in the Best fraternity there is in Kappa Alpha Psi and I wouldn’t take it back for anything.

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

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

• Just knowing that I was born 3 months premature with an abscess in my heart and not giving long to continue to now I’m doing great things at what I love to do just keeps me going.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

• I was sleep and my brother hooked the speaker up close by and started playing gunshots and he started screaming. I woke up scared as ever to his recording and laughing.

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

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