I usually will watch Netflix and try to keep my mind off of the game until we get to the stadium to warm up. Pregame warmups I like to run full speed routes and get catches. Then I listen to my pregame playlist and get ready to go.

• I play Madden and 2k, and cooking breakfast food
If you had to compare yourself to someone in the NFL, who would that be?
• Doug Baldwin, his route running, and releases are his best attributes as well as he is an ex-basketball player and brings many of his skills from there to the football field which I believe I do as well. Also has great one-step quickness that I possess as well.
Who has been the biggest influence on your life and explain why?
• My parents, are both educated, hardworking people that have pushed me and kept me in great situations and helped me keep my head in the right direction so that I could achieve my goals. Also, my dad was an elite athlete and instilled that competitive drive and work ethic in me from a young age. Winning and success were all I knew growing up and I have taken that with me everywhere I go.
What motivates you to work hard?
• I have always been doubted wherever I went. I use that doubt and past failures to fuel my fire and work ethic. I want to be the best in whatever I do and I use people’s doubt in me to prove them wrong and it motivates me every day. For example, I walked on in college and I had that in the back of my mind every time I went to work out and practice and play in the games and it made me go that much harder.
