What have you taken away the most from Coach Nofri, Coach Clements and the rest of the Sacred Heart coaching staff?

How to be a professional and how to challenge me. Also, how to always push myself by never putting limitations on the things I can do.

When football is over, what do you aspire to do in the professional world?

I plan to own a business, that changes the lives of others. I’m not sure what exactly but I have many ideas.

What separates you from other players at the WR position?

My speed and route running. Also, I’m willing to take coaching from anyone who wants to make me better. I’m my biggest critic so I’m always finding ways to up my talent.

Who is the toughest player you’ve competed against during your collegiate career?

Devin Russell.

If your life was a book, what would the title be?

“Opportunity.”

Give me your Mount Rushmore of all-time wide receivers, past and present. What made you choose these four players?

Jerry Rice, Chad Johnson, Odell Beckham, Larry Fitzgerald, Phillip Dorsett, Joey Galloway, Calvin Ridley, Stefon Diggs. I choose them because I love the art of route running, speed and big plays. I feel like if a wide receiver has something from each of them, he would be unstoppable.

Is there a current or former NFL player you emulate your game after?

Percy Harvin.

Let’s take a trip back to the first day of your freshman year of High School. What advice would you give yourself then, knowing what you know now?

Listen to everyone who came before you, it will give you all the information you need to know.

If I’m in Fairfield on a Saturday night during the Fall, where is the one place I have to eat at?

Merritt Canteen.

You’re in front of all 32 NFL General Managers and have 15 words or less to give them your pitch on why Kezio Snelling will be an asset to their organization for years to come. What do you tell them?

An opportunity is all I need and I can play all special teams.
