What is the best restaurant in your hometown city?

• In terms of food, atmosphere and overall experience, I would have to say Earls. But it has to be the south location.

When breaking down your film what will stick out?

• The main thing would be physicality. I have an attack mindset and embrace the physicality of the sport. Also, special teams ability is another area I stand out, with covering kicks and blocking punts.

If you won the lotto, what is the first thing you would do with the money?

• First thing I would do is give money to my family members to make sure they are taken care of. They are my biggest supporters and they would deserve it more than anyone I know.

What has been your biggest failure?

• I would say my biggest failure is not having played in any Can-West playoff games thus far. When I signed with the University of Regina, my goal was to win a Hardy Cup, as well as a Vanier Cup. I still have one more year left though, so I still expect to accomplish these goals.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?

• I think they would say that I am dependable. I do not like to miss practices and I have not missed any games throughout my university career. When I am on the field, I know my teammates trust that I will perform at a high level consistently.

Who is the hardest working teammate on your team?

• Easy question, it is definitely Kyle Borsa. We train together, so I get to see his work ethic up close. Every time we train, we push each other to be the best athletes possible.

Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?

•Most of my teammates just call me by my last name, Lowes. 

What is your degree in, if you do not make it as a football player, what is your dream job?

• I am currently working towards a Bachelor of Arts, but I plan to get my Bachelor of Education degree as well. I love history, so teaching that would be my ideal job.

What song would you sing at Karaoke night?

•Beverly Hills- Weezer

If you could pick any actor to play you in a movie, who are you picking?

• Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Who is your favorite football team?

• New England Patriots. 

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

• Proceed with caution. I’ve been told I’m a little bit of a loose cannon on the field.

What is your biggest fear?

• Losing my family members.

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL?

• Frank Gore. One of the all-time greats, although he rarely gets the recognition he deserves.

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?

• I like to cook! I always have fun trying out new recipes I see online.

If you had to compare yourself to someone in the NFL, who would that be?

• It is a little bit tough comparing to the NFL because I play Canadian style football, but someone who would be similar is a Shaq Thompson. An outside linebacker with good coverage skills and safety experience.

Who has been the biggest influence on your life and explain why?

• My mom has been the biggest influence in my life because she always supports me through any ups and downs life throws at me. She leads by example and is a great role model for me.

What motivates you to work hard?

• 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.
