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

• Film study is first due to the fact that you can have the game already won by simply being ahead of your opponent. You can know what’s going to happen before the ball even snaps. Practice would be next to execute the game plan from film study. Simply rehearsing everything you will counter on film. Most of the battle is won here too also. Then there’s weights, they are also important in having an edge on a opponent. You’ll come across strong and fast opponents. Weights the correct way can improve your strength and speed. Every rep is important, so you can’t miss reps at all. It can also loosen up muscles when they’re tight.

What do you worry about, and why?

• What I worry about most is not being successful. You can do everything the right way, and still be unsuccessful. I know that I want to provide for my family, live happily and comfortably, and not have any worries. 

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

• John Wick, that’s my favorite character of all time. All of the actions scenes are exciting. 

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

• the biggest adversity I’ve had in life is being picked last all the time. Everybody saying I’m too small, can’t do this or can’t do that. I dealt with by simply proving all the doubters wrong. Every single time.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

• Falling down the stairs in the hallway high school. That was pretty bad. 

What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?

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

• Michael Vick, people seen the bad he did and turned to hate him. Everyone has to learn to forgive and move on. They even tried to vote him out from being honored as a pro bowl captain.

Do you love to win, or hate to lose?

• I absolutely hate losing, that feeling is sickening.

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