Who is the hardest working teammate on your team?

Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?

• The nickname that I have is Bowie Island, that nickname has been connected with me since I’ve been in high school and I got several articles from high school about it recognizing my ability on what I do on the field. The nickname will always be part of me for the rest of my life. 

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

• “I know your route” 

What is your biggest fear? 

• My biggest fear is to fail 

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL? 

• There are many underrated players in the NFL but since I am a DB, I am going to have to go with Budda Baker. He plays Saftey, lines up in the slot, plays Corner, and matches up great with Tight Ends, and comes down and helps in the run game. 

Take us through game day, How do you prepare? 

• The way I prepare is to always try and get with the other 10 guys on defense at some point throughout the day to give them words of encouragement before kickoff. I watch film until I have to leave for the field and I look over the notes I made for that particular team that week. Also, I just relax and listen to music to get my mind focused on the game. 

Do you have any hobbies? 

• I love to hang out with teammates/friends, play 2k/Madden and also do football training for Youth, middle school, and High school DBs  

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

•  I would say Chris Harris Jr because he can play on either side at Corner as well as play the slot. He’s not the biggest, strongest or fastest, but his level of IQ and his technique is a reason he has been an elite Corner for almost a decade. 

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

• The person who has had the biggest influence on my life is my mom because she sacrificed over and over for me to chase my dreams. Also, I’ve had great people like Laquinn Thompson, Hakeem Kinard, Kevin Jackson, Calvin Heath, and Quinn Howard helping me be there when I need someone to talk too 

What motivates you to work hard?

• What motivates me to work hard is knowing I am a first-generation student in my family, so to strive for success on and off the field is huge for me. It allows the younger ones in my family to have something to look up too that is what makes me work harder.
