Tell us about your university/college. Did you participate in any other activities or campus organizations other than football? 

Delta State is a great school if you’re looking for diversity. There’s so many different nationalities here. Delta State is a small school so I guess it just stands out more here. Overall, we have good spirit and support every event here at our school. I did participate last year, but I will most definitely this year coming up. 

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

My teammates say that my ability to lead and push other players is my best quality.

Justice Powers 

Which one of your teammates impresses you the most?

I would have to say Zane Samuel. Dude is a freak.

Describe a time in your life when you were able to overcome a struggle.

A struggle I had to overcome was me getting in trouble. I lost everything I went from being on top of the world and having it all  to having nothing. From then I stayed prayed up and did what every man should do when they fall and that’s get back up. Perseverance, determination, and faith was all I had. I had to earn the trust of coaches and players, and I can’t thank them enough for believing in me and letting me prove myself. 

If you didn’t play football, what other sport would you play?

I probably would have given baseball a try.

What is something that you are most proud of? What would you say is your biggest achievement?

I am most proud of the man I’ve become. It’s been a long journey for me to get where I am today. My determination and faith has taken me a long way.

I usually play games in my spare time or get a facetime call in with my kids. I play around with music. I can lowkey rap. A secret talent I have is when I get on a basketball court and turn into Lebron out there.

Who or what motivates you the most?

I would have to say my children. I grind day in and day out to make sure that my kids have the best opportunity to be as great as they possibly could be. Also my family period. Hopefully I can change their lives if I do everything I need to do.
