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

•  Denver, Colorado, I mostly love having the mountains there. It’s a fun place to be and it’s growing, it’s developed so much since I was a child.

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

•  Strength and conditioning first because football is a physical game that requires a person to be in shape to even compete. Practice second because you need to train your body to actually do the athletic movements that are apart of the game of football and develop a foundation. Third is film study because this is when you try to become a smarter player and you can use that knowledge to build on top of what you practiced.

What do you worry about, and why?

•  I don’t worry a lot, but a simple worry I have is not achieving my goals because I know what I want to do and it’d be very inconvenient to change that.

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

•  One family member because I love them and it would be what makes sense to me.

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

•  Probably Superman just so I could fly around 

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

•  Well this is reoccurring, but growing up I’ve always been told and heard that I was going to suck at football and that I’m no good or I’m too small, but throughout my childhood and time and time again I was one of the best players doubters have ever seen.

What is your most embarrassing moment?
