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

I am from Upper Marlboro Maryland. The part I love the most about it is the people in the community. They arelovely, respectful, and kind.

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

My order would be film study, strength and conditioning, and then practice. I chose this order because I firmly believe that this is where you gain knowledge while learning about your opponent and your own mistakes. Strength and conditioning is second because you have to be strong and in shape to play this game. Especially for my position in the enterior of defensive line. I put practice last because I firmly believe it’s the last step in the preparation process before you get to the actual game. 

What do you worry about, and why?

I worry about making a mistake on the field because I know my teammates are counting on me to be great, take charge, and lead by example. 

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

My junior season I missed a sack that I normally would have secured once I got my hands on the QB. This playcould’ve potentially ended the game. That play taught me that opportunities are limited. When they do come your way it’s a must that you take advantage of it and make the plays that you are supposed to make. You never know what play could be a game changer.

What do your teammates say is your best quality? 

Most of them would say that I am friendly and kind.

Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?

My current teammate Chandler Zavala is the best playerthat I ever played against in college. He’s a junior who starts on our offensive line. He’s very balanced, strong, and possesess fast feet. Every snap was a challenge andI knew that I had to bring everything had when we lined up against each other during practice. 

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

I would love the get into the construction business or be a crane operator.

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

Room

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

One of my family members. I pray that I’m never put in that type of situation.

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

I would be Iron man because he’s the symbol of the people and for the people!

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

I lost my grandmother and that was my first time experiencing the death of someone close to me. My head was everywhere and that was the only I could think about for a while. I overcame it by just telling myself that she’s in a better place and not suffering anymore. God is in control.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

No comment

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

During my freshman year in college I got my first sack in the second game of the season.

What song best describes your work ethic?

War With Us. By NBA YoungBoy

What is the most important trait you can have (Physical or Non-Physical) to help you succeed at the next level?

A Non Physical trait would help me the most. I would like to continue to develop my mental toughness.  

If you could bring one person back from the dead for one day, who would it be and why?

My grandmother because she just brought me the most joy and happiness. Seeing her smile made my day and I always told her if I get to the NFL you are coming to every game.

If you were to open a dance club, what would you name it?

Lights out

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL?

Cory Littleton

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

I would rather be respected. When people respect you they will never try to cross you or do you wrong. Stronger bonds and trust are built when you have respect for that person. 

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

Michael Vick. He was a great player who was in the middle of his prime. The situation that he got involved derailed his career. I often think how much more greatness that we could’ve seen if he didn’t have to stop playing. 

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

I hate losing. It makes me feel like all of the hard work was done for nothing.

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

My father. As a child he pushed me to be great in whatever I did. Football is what I wanted to do so he trained me hard and always stayed on me to have good grades. He always told me whatever you do strive to be the best at it
