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

•  Nashville Tennessee. I love that this is a tight-knit blue city. I love that there is a bond that our city shares through the good and the bad. For example, the Nashville flood that happened a few years back, and last season when the Tennessee Titans made huge run at a super bowl appearance. Just seeing how the city comes together through pain and triumph shows us all the love we have for one another and Nashville natives. 

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

•  Practice, film study, and strength and conditioning. I begin with practice, because practice make perfect. How one practices is how one plays. I take practice extremely seriously simply because one must get everything out of it just as a real football game. I say film study secondly, because it is extremely important that I must be able to give myself constructive criticism on the screen to improve upon every single detail on the field. I put strength and conditioning third simply because if you made it to the practice stage one should be in shape. Strength and condition are both big keys to success just as everything else listed above and should not be overlooked.

What do you worry about, and why?
