1.What are your favorite moments from playing college football?

Has to be my first game At Kennesaw State.. first FBS game, first D1 start, and the atmosphere was great.. created my first turnover of the year and got the Turnover Plank which is huge for KSU football.. also, I had a chance to make a great first impression to my brothers and the fans. 

2. What do you hope to accomplish if you get into the NFL?

I want to show people how great God is, provide for my family, give back, and continue to work until I’m a Hall of Famer.

3. What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

When I get into my stance, I know whoever is in front of me, I can dominate them if I stay solid with my technique so I just keep that in mind and keep next play mentality. 

4. If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

Tyrann Matthieu, We are very similar.. we both faced adversity but persevered, we both love the game with a passion. I feel like we would click on day 1.

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

Los Angeles, Since a kid I always wanted to have a family and to own home up in the hills and just live life. 

6.How was your experience playing college football?

Progressive. it’s been fun to pick one thing to get better at in the off-season from each year and watching it pay off year after year. I’ve been able to get 2 rings, go to Junior College and make relationships life long relationships and make All American then come to Kennesaw State and do the same and make All-Conference. I’m ready to show the world how great this last year will be at Valdosta State.

7. What was your favorite thing about playing for Kennesaw State and what are your goals for playing with Valdosta State this year?

I loved KSU most because it demanded greatness. My 2 years at Kennesaw State, the corners room was full of competition. Being good was never good enough. My goal at Valdosta State is to let the team know they can count on me on defense and special teams and just show the world what I already know I can do.

9. If your life was a tv show what would you call it and why?

The Outcome. Since I was 5 God has spared my life, I have been hit hard by adversity, lost love ones, been counted out and turned on by people I thought was here for me, had my Beautiful Princess Laine, and persevered. Now I’m just living the outcome.

10. What would a team get in a player like you?

A dawg. A versatile DB and special teams guy who never gives up on a play and can come up and blitz or show up in the run game like a linebacker but I’m extremely comfortable on the island and can lock anybody down from any spot in the back end. Also, I’m a student of the game, I take pride in watching film and studying my opponents. Each year of college football I have played with new coaching staff. My ability to get comfortable and be at my best and taking coaching is phenomenal. 

11. What do you do for fun?

I enjoy spending time with my family, go to the beach, or just try new things I have never done before. I bought a tennis racket recently so I do that for fun as of now. 

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

A pit bull. They are loyal, intelligent and their ability to adapt is phenomenal. They put their mind to something and they do it. All dawgs bark but a pit bull is known to bite too.
