Take us through game day, How do you prepare?
• I start preparing a healthy breakfast as soon as I wake up, usually an omelette. After that I start listening to motivational speeches and get a good stretch in. Once I’m finished stretching, I lay down and begin a process of visualization where I imagine myself making big plays on the field. I try to get a second meal in after I finish my visualization routine and then it’s usually time to go to the locker room.
Do you have any hobbies?

• Football is the biggest passion I have, so I am motivated to do everything in my power to play the game as long as I possibly can. I can’t stand the thought of someone outworking me, which leads me to push myself in my training and on the field.
