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

•  My hometown is San Diego, CA. It’s a beautiful city with so many talented people in different fields and arts. I moved around a lot throughout my life but nowhere I have lived has matched Southern California. The atmosphere, the vibe, and the culture are unmatched. 

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

•  Film Study, Strength and Conditioning, and practice all play a pivotal role in your personal and your team success. But if I had to order them Film study has to be first, without knowing your opponent the best you can and what to be prepared for you’ll be solely relying on talent. The game is a lot more mental than physical. Practice goes second because you have to practice what you preach and practice makes perfect it builds that repetition that will eventually feel natural to you. This stacked on top of film study already puts you at an advantage. Last but not least strength and conditioning is very important also as your body has to be able to withstand the slow break down the season has on your body. Strength and conditioning is so much more than lifting and running it’s taking care of your body, watching your diet, and stretching. These will all play a factor on performance come game time.

What do you worry about, and why?

•  currently I’m not worrying about anything because worrying brings so many other feelings with it such as doubt and regret. When your focused and prepared then there isn’t anything to worry about either something works or it doesn’t, why spend time worrying about something if it’s out of your control?

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

• I’ve failed at something I think everyone can relate to. I’ve failed in multiple different kinds relationships wether it be friends, family’s, or girlfriends. The key is to not look at failure as a negative but to look at failure as a new path to success. I overcame all these different relationships and even mended some by taking everything each relationship has taught me and applying it. That’s all failure is, it’s failing, learning from it, and then if you overcome it or not all depends on how or if you apply the lessons from failure.

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

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

•  Have to clean the room first because your mood is effected by your living space. You keep that clean then your keep your mind clear and have an overall better mood.

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

•  2 strangers and my family member because if I have time to save 3 people then I’m saving as many people as I can but my family will Be first. It’s not going to be like Scar and Mufasa.  

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

•  I would be the Equalizer just for the way the character cares and protects others but also how analytical he can get when it’s crunch time. 

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

•  my biggest adversity has been moving around a lot being a part of a military family and not really knowing my mother well. Every move equals relationships gone and people forgotten. It takes a lot out of you and relationships become a little harder to maintain. Yet communication and working on my communication with others has helped me overcome this problem. 

What is your most embarrassing moment?

• it was Freshman year in camp and I had a speech I had thoughtful prepared for the team. I get the team all together at the end of practice and then my mind goes blank so start to improvise and everything I said did not come out the way I meant it to. My teammates will never let me live it down.

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

•  K.J Pretty a WR at Franklin and Marshall who averaged 100+ yards a game. I was responsible for checking him for most of the game. I loved every moment of it. It was 4th and short they decided to go for it. It’s me against him man on man. I’m playing down and distance and he’s lined up outside my divider I immediately think slant. Next thing I know he’s coming out of his 3 step break and I break on the ball and have a huge 4th down stop and held him to 30 yards receiving that game.
