Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?
• I was born in Houston and live in Sugar Land, TX. It’s been a great experience to grow up in such a large and diverse city.
List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?
• In terms of importance, I would have to put Practice as most important. How you practice is how you will play in games. Secondly, would be film study to see what you’re doing well versus what mistakes you need to correct, as well as being able to scout opponents. Lastly, but still very important is strength and conditioning. Even though its last on my list, it’s crucial in keeping your body strong and healthy.
What do you worry about, and why?
• I try to worry about myself and be focused on the things that I control.
Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?
• I’ve failed so many times whether it be on the field or in the classroom, I just try my best to never be discouraged and always find a way to overcome it.
What do your teammates say is your best quality?
• Teammates would say my best quality is my consistency and dependability. They knew I would do things the right way and that they could always count on me to lead by example.
Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?
• Justin Watson – Penn
What would your career be if you couldn’t play football?
• Somehow I would still want to be involved with the sports industry if I couldn’t play.
Room, desk and car – which do you clean first?
• Because the start and end of my days are in my room, I would have to clean it first.
If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?
• I would have to save my family member first – family over everything.
If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?
• Rocky Balboa – he is the ultimate underdog.
Tell me about your biggest adversity in life and how you’ve dealt with or overcome it?
• I face adversity quite often being so far from home and at the school I am at. Every day is a new challenge, but also a new opportunity. I deal with it by just focusing on one day at a time and being in the moment.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
• I try not to put myself in many embarrassing situations, but back in high school I was getting interviewed after a game, and it was one of the first times being in a situation like that. I just remember being so nervous and not really knowing how to answer some of the questions I was asked. It was definitely an embarrassing feeling, but it was also a learning experience for me.
What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?
• This past season I had a game-clinching interception against Dartmouth. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that moment. I also had a 3 interception game against Penn my sophomore season that is just as memorable.
What song best describes your work ethic?
• No Days Off – Fetty Wap
What is the most important trait you can have (Physical or Non-Physical) to help you succeed at the next level?
If you could bring one person back from the dead for one day, who would it be and why?
• I would bring back my Grandpa – Scrapps Jones. He passed away when I was really young and I never got to fully know the man behind the stories. He was the model to our family, and if I could spend a day with him – I would.
If you were to open a dance club, what would you name it?
Who is the most underrated player in the NFL?
• Darius Slay
Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?
• I would rather be respected because it’s earned. Being liked doesn’t have much meaning to it.
What player who had his career derailed by off-field issues do you feel for the most and why?
• Johnny Manziel
Do you love to win, or hate to lose?
• Although I hate to lose, I definitely love to win more. There’s nothing better than the rewarding feeling that comes with winning.
Who has been the biggest influence on your life and explain why?
• Both of my parents, but specifically my mom. She’s so hard working, supportive, and definitely my biggest critic. I wouldn’t be where I am or the man I am without her in my life.
