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

Southaven, Mississippi is my hometown. Being born in Memphis and moving across the state line to Mississippi; the culture is different from the rest of the state.

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

Film Study, Practice, then Strength and Conditioning. I say film study first because I’m big on knowing my opponents strengths and weaknesses, certain plays and formations. I feel like It gives me the upper hand against them. Practice allows me to apply my classroom knowledge to the field and work on my craft and technique.

What do you worry about, and why?

I don’t really worry about anything. I feel like my preparation, hard work, and faith in God eliminates any doubts or worries I may have.

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

Sophomore year in high school I dropped the game winning touchdown and that following summer I promised myself to never allow that to happen again. I learned that sometimes you have to fail to find out who you really are.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

My ability to pay attention to detail in the film room and apply it to the field. I know the defense like the back of my hand. I take pride in being the leader of the defense and knowing everyone’s responsibilities.

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

It’s hard to choose one. I’ve played great players all throughout my career. If I had to choose I’d say Devin White from LSU. 

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

My degree is in Supply Chain – the study of logistics. I would start my career with a job in my field.

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

I would definitely clean my car first. That’s a reflection of me that goes everywhere I go.

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

I would choose my family member. I’m very family-oriented. I would give my life for my family, so that’s an easy question in my eyes.

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

Will Smith. I feel like he exemplifies a family man that is also a pro at his craft.

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

Moving to South Louisiana to play football was a big culture shock that I overcame. I put my faith in God and put my head down and got to work.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

I’m a very goofy person so nothing really embarrasses me. I consider everything as having fun.

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

My pick 6 against Houston Baptist at our Homecoming game my junior year.

What song best describes your work ethic?

Kevin Gates – I don’t get tired

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

Speed. You can create a lot of problems with speed.

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

My grandmother. Just to meet her and thank her for molding my dad into the man he is.

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

Boom Boom Room

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL? 

Mark Ingram. The substance??? he brings to the table day in and day out, I feel goes overlooked.

Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?

Respected because I’ve been taught that respect takes you a long way. As a King I feel like not everyone will like you but they will respect you.

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

Michael Vick. He opened the eyes for a lot of kids, like myself, growing up. He made a mistake that’ll haunt him for the rest of his life, but he also changed the impact of the game forever.

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

I hate to lose.

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

My parents. They are the epitome of hard-work. No matter their physical or mental condition, they put their heads down and go to work. They instilled in me and my siblings to never quit and to always get the job done.
