I’m an Integrative Studies major with a minor in Coaching. Campus life is great, everyone is friendly and all smiles.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

They always tell me I’m a student of the game. I think they would describe me as a player who never complained about working and when we’re in late game situations. They know I ask for the ball to be run behind me.

I see myself as a leader and one of the guys who my teammates can come to in time of need not only about football but also in life

October, 13, 2019 was the day I lost my grandmother to cancer. It was one of the hardest times in my life, but football helped me overcome my pain. I used football as a getaway to escape from my problems.

4th & Goal, 1st round vs Wofford. They stuffed us twice on the goal line and we called for a timeout. I told Coach Bo that I wanted the ball ran behind me, and we scored the next play! 

Do you have a favorite athlete or professional team? Is there a player that you model your game after?

Quenton Nelson (LG) for the Colts is my favorite player in the NFL. He’s smart, student of the game, and one of the most violent guys I’ve seen play the game in a while.
