As an athlete, what is your motivation?

My motivation is my family and the ones who have helped me get this far.

What defines success for you?

Success is when you pour your heart and soul into your craft and you are satisfied with the outcome you receive. I also look at success as completing every single goal you have set out for yourself.

What would your teammates say about the type of teammate you are?

My teammates would describe as a team player, an individual who would put the team before myself, a teammate who cares about each and every player on the team, an unselfish individual who wants to see others succeed other than me, an individual who takes the blame regardless of who is at fault, and a teammate who is willing to go to war with them every game.

Failure is inevitable in life. How do you handle situations that don’t go in your favor?

Is there a current/former NFL player that you model your game after?

I like to model my style of play after Deshaun Watson.

In 15 words or less, why should an NFL team invest in you?

You should invest in me because I’m a hardworking individual, who wants to win.
