Talk about your experience as a student. What is your major/minor? Did you participate in any other activities or campus organizations other than football?
I started out at Davidson. I was originally recruited to play QB being an All-State player in Colorado. I realized this wasn’t the right fit and transferred to the University of Sioux Falls. At Sioux Falls, I was able to obtain my Bachelors in Business Administration while minoring in Accounting. I was also able to obtain my MBA in Organizational Leadership. I’m currently at Lindenwood University pursuing a Masters degree in Finance and playing out my last year of football.

What do your teammates say is your best quality?
They would say my consistency and work ethic. I’m a hardworking player.

What kind of role do you see yourself in on the team? What scheme and/or position suits your skill set?
I’m excited to step into a role here at Lindenwood where I’ll not only be used more as a receiving threat but can also be a leader. I pride myself on being able to stay on the field in every set. I’ve played the wing position, an in-line blocker and in the backfield as an h-back/fullback. I’m more than a capable blocker and can be put in a position to exploit mismatches against the defense.

Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?
Dennis Gardeck is currently the special teams captain for the Arizona Cardinals. Before that, I played with him at Sioux Falls practicing with him every day. He’s a very athletic guy with freakish strength, speed and a high motor.

Which one of your teammates impresses you the most?
One of my teammates that impressed me the most was Trey Pipkins who currently plays for the Chargers. He was the Left Tackle at Sioux Falls and is extremely athletic at 6’7, 315. He played our offensive scheme very well and was a man amongst boys. 

Describe a time in your life when you were able to overcome a struggle.
I’ve gone through a lot of struggles in my career so far, most of which are injury related. I’m now going into my 7th year. I began last season after breaking my hand in fall camp. I actually played 4 games into 2019 until I decided to take a medical redshirt year. I also had to have shoulder surgery. I guess you can say that I am still overcoming those struggles. I feel that I’ve been placed in a situation where I can focus on getting myself healthy since we’re not playing this fall. Also, I feel that I’ve made the most of my opportunities by furthering my academic career. Football has already allowed me to obtain 2 degrees for which I’m very thankful.

If you didn’t play football, what other sport would you play?
Basketball. I played basketball all 4 years of high school and was one of the team captains my senior year. I was mostly a defensive player and led our team in rebounds. I was able to play with Justinian Jessup who played basketball at Boise State and is currently playing in the Australian National Basketball League.

What is something that you are most proud of? What would you say is your biggest achievement?
Being able to get my undergrad and masters in 4 and a half years is something I’m most proud of. I was on the NSIC All-Academic Team for multiple years. In terms of football I was First team all-conference and second team all super region in 2018. My accolades also include being named the 2014 Colorado Times Call High School Football Player of the Year, and I graduated high school in the top 5 percent of my class.

Describe one of the most memorable plays of your collegiate career.
My junior year at Sioux Falls, we were playing Concordia St. Paul, and I caught the game winning TD pass on a dime pass from my friend Caden Walters .

Do you have a favorite athlete or professional team? Is there a player that you model your game after?
I’m from Colorado and cheer for the Broncos. My favorite TE of all-time is Gronk. Every young TE looks to him as the prototype player, and I also love his personality.

Who is your favorite music artist? What gets you pumped before a game?
My favorite music artist would be Tech N9ne

What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies? Any secret talents?
I like to go fishing in my spare time. I can also play the didgeridoo.

Who or what motivates you the most?
Faith has helped keep me focused and grounded. I try to keep a constant stream of prayer. God is my Rock and a huge motivation in my life.

My family and friends are a great support system, and I try to honor them in what I do on and off the field.
