1.What do want Defenders fans to think of you?

I’m excited for the opportunity that DC has given me. I’m hungry to help the team any way possible to win games and be prepared every week. 

2. What’s it like being on team 9?

Team 9 was a great experience with Bart Andrus and Peter Vas. It’s a great setup to keep guys in shape and ready for when their number may be called. 

3. Favorite XFL rule?

My favorite rules is the “removing of the extra point”. It keeps the game entertaining with 0 dead plays. It keeps the fans engaged and allows the losing team to catch up with the options of 1,2 or 3 points. 

4. What is your goal for this season and beyond?

The goal is to keep growing and developing as a quarterback and a leader. 

5. What is your favorite dessert?


6. If you could live anywhere in the world where and why?

Turks and Caicos 

7. What is your favorite musical theater?

That’s a hard one. Country music I prefer Texas Country. But my pregame music is usually John Mayer “I still feel like your man”.

8. What is your dream car?


9. What is your favorite drink?

Big Red

10. If you were on an island and could only have 3 things which 3 things would you have?

Toothbrush, rope and fishing pole.

11. What is your favorite movie?

Favorite movie is Step Brothers.

12. If you were an animal which animal would you be and why?

A jelly fish! Because that’s my favorite animal.
