  • Practice is where you can get all your questions answered and understand why you are going to defend a team a certain way, while also becoming more comfortable with the style of play of your teammates in order to be the most successful.
  • Film study lets you break down your individual matchup and see formational tendencies to be more effective in disrupting plays and having a better idea of what play you are about to see.

• I worry about being the best at whatever I am trying to do.

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

• I did not get recruited coming out of high school the way I wanted. I took a year off from football and then got after it in the weight room and on the field to get to the level of success that I felt I could reach.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

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

• One family member, for me it is family over everything.

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

• Deadpool because he can’t be killed, and he has a good time in every situation he is in no matter how serious. He gets to live care free and help those in need.

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

• Moving from Ohio to California for my freshman year of high school. I had to get adjusted to a whole new school with new friends in a short amount of time. I adjusted by getting acclimated with my football and basketball teammates there and reacclimating myself academically and athletically.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

• When I was in Kindergarten, I was wearing tear-away pants and accidentally tore them off during recess and then I had to go home

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

• Plaxico Burress. He had a very promising career ahead of him and then he accidentally shot himself in the foot with a gun. It seemed to be an isolated incident and not one where a player is given multiple chances, but they continue to mess it up.

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

• Hate to lose.

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

• My dad. He has shown me that with the right work ethic you can achieve your dreams and you can go above and beyond what others think you are capable of.
