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

Who is the most underrated player in the NFL?

• The most underrated player in the NFL is Brett Jones. I think he is a very talented Centre, and Guard who deserves more love than he gets. 

Take us through game day, How do you prepare?

• I wake up, have a cup of coffee. I then sit down to have breakfast, as I have breakfast I watch the latest opponent’s game to look for any key weaknesses I may have missed throughout the week of preparation leading up to game day. After that, I shower and head to the field, and put on my gameday shoes as I walk out the door. I get treatment from the physio’s and then eat with the team. After our team meal, I stretch and put my lowers on. I go and take a walk around the field, come back and get taped as I listen to some motivational music, then I put my eye black on, strap up my helmet and get ready for war. 

Do you have any hobbies?

• My hobbies would be breaking down old game or practice film, but outside of football I would say that I like to go for bike rides, go fishing, or play some other sports like basketball or hockey. 

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

• I would compare myself to Taylor Lewan. He is someone who plays to the echo of the whistle and is always sticking up for his teammates. He is known for his old fashion to take no prisons style. 

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

• My biggest influence will always be my dad. He was always taking me to early morning practices, and driving me to cities that were hours away just so I could be the best football player possible. He also played for the University of Saskatchewan and wore the number 60, which is the reason I wear number 60.

What motivates you to work hard?

• I stay motivated to work hard because I know that know matter how talented I may think I am I am I can always be a better, stronger player. I also know that the work that I might skip out on is work that someone else is putting in, so I never skip the work.
