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

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

• Film study, strength and conditioning then practice because in order to prepare for your opponent to the best of your ability you must watch film to break down tendencies and play styles. Every team and opponent bring something different and unique to table so film is critical to begin the process. Strength and conditioning come next because it is critical to be superior to your opponent in that facet of the game because football is driven by physicality so your body must be in the correct condition going into each game. Then you have practice, in practice everything comes together your film study and strength conditioning meet on the field to result in the finished product for game time.

What do you worry about, and why?

• My family, my goal is to get my family in a better position so that is my biggest worry right now

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

• It was in high school my sophomore year during basketball season when when we lost to a rival school and I didn’t play my best game I promised everyone on my team that we would come back next year and win. When we played them my junior year we beat them in overtime that was a big accomplishment for my team.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

• I never asked my teammates about my best quality but I would say work ethic and how I approach the game. I try to show that if you work on your craft the results will show no matter the circumstance.

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

• Jeremy Chinn from Southern Illinois University, I felt as if he was the most NFL ready player I played against. He has a great feel for the game and good size at the safety position.

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

• Coaching basketball, basketball is my first love and if I couldn’t play football I would give my all into coaching basketball.

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

• Room, a clean room is everything that is where I start and finish my day as well as where I visualize everything in my life so the energy has to be positive.

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

• Family member because family is everything I would do anything for my family.

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

• I would be Naruto Uzumaki, he epitomizes hard work and dedication. He lives by certain code and will do anything to reach his goals.

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

• Losing in the playoffs senior year of high school football, mainly because we expected to win.

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

• Making an 18 yard catch in overtime on a 4th and 14 down by 7 to prolong the game moments  like that are what your dream of being an athlete.

What song best describes your work ethic?

• Nipsey Hussle – Grinding all my life, that was been my alarm for a year now. I wake up knowing I have work to do.

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

• IQ and how fast you process information, everyone can play the game to some extent physically but your mind and knowledge will dictate how long you last.

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

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

• I’m not sure haven’t thought of that, dance clubs aren’t my thing.

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL? 

• Stefon Diggs in my opinion because he does a lot for his team and attracts the opposing teams best corner week in and week out and he runs some of the best routes in the NFL.

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

• I would rather be respected because respect goes a long way, because you don’t have to be liked to be respected.

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

• Eric Berry because he is such a warrior and great player that overcame his battle with cancer and resumed his career. He had to go through a lot and is one of the best to ever do it.

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

• Hate to lose, losing teaches me more about myself then winning does.
