As an athlete, what is your motivation?
My motivation is to succeed at the highest level possible despite all of the people who have doubted me along the way. To me, there is no greater motivation than the people that told me I would not be able to accomplish a certain goal of mine.
What defines success for you?
Being able to achieve desired goals in life and doing it the right way. Whether that is football, academics, or any other goal you wish to achieve in life.
What would your teammates say about the type of teammate you are?
They would say that I am an accountable, energetic, and hardworking teammate that is always pushing everyone else to be better.
What are some of your personal “rules” that you never break?
Some personal rules would be to never stop trying to improve in my craft, don’t allow someone else to give less than I know they can give, and never let my life only be about football. There is more to me than just a football player.
Who is the toughest player you’ve competed against during your collegiate career?
The toughest player I would say that I have ever competed against would probably be Carl Whitley (WR – Abilene Christian University – 2015-2017).
Who is the best player in the NFL?
What is your team of choice on Madden, why?
My team of choice in Madden would be the Dallas Cowboys. That was always my team growing up and no matter if its real life or a game I will always be faithful to the Cowboys.
Failure is inevitable in life. How do you handle situations that don’t go in your favor?
I take them as lessons that need to be corrected and fixed. This way I am able to accomplish them the next time the opportunity arises.
Is there a current/former NFL player that you model your game after?
The current NFL linebacker that I have watched and modeled my game after would be Darius Leonard who plays for the Colts.
Knowing what you do now, what would you go back and tell yourself as a High-School Freshman?
I would definitely tell myself to never take the easy route in anything that you are doing. There is no way to avoid the hard routes that you are going to pass through when trying to reach such hard goals in life. Prepare for this at an early age and you will be ready for it when it comes.
What is your go-to restaurant near campus?
My go-to restaurant near campus would probably be Wingstop.
If your life was a book, what would its title be?
If my life was a book, I would say that its title would be Against all Odds.”
What song or artist do you like but rarely admit to liking?
I had always been a big fan of the artist Z-Ro growing up, but there are not very many people that listen to him where I am from.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, living or deceased, who would it be and why?
If I could sit and have dinner with anyone, I would give anything to sit and have dinner with God and be able to sit and enjoy a simple conversation to get a better understanding of the questions that I have for him.
Forty-years from now, what do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered as someone that was not only a great football player but as someone who was also a great person as well. A great athlete, but an even better teammate that people good count on.
In 15 words or less, why should an NFL team invest in you?
They get someone who is accountable, coachable, and strives to be perfect at what he does on and off the field.
