What makes you a top prospect at your position  in the 2022 NFL Draft? 

What makes me the NFL top prospect in my class is I am versatile and can play any position on the line and I am a athletic offensive.

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

I was interested in football at the age of 12 when my mom told me she would pay me $20 to play football and I loved it ever since 7th grade

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

NFL Teams should know that I can come in and contribute to being a great team leader and vocal leader on and off the field. I also preach the word of God and pray for the team as well.

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be? 

If I could donate, I would donate scholarships and equipment to Alief ISD because I feel like being from there it’s hard to get an opportunity to go to college, and giving back scholarships for students and equipment for athletes would be a blessing.

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

The best advice I ever received was from my pops when he told me in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 saying “Time is Everything”. I feel like whatever you do in life, there was a time you had to either begin it or finish it and the goal is to always finish what you begin so that stuck with me through life.

Who was your childhood hero? 

My childhood hero was my Mom. She stuck through me since I was born and from moving to different houses every year to being able to travel to almost every school being recruited out of high school, she is my hero of all time.

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school? 

The Most underrated teammate I have experienced would be John Lovett. He could play anywhere on the field and still dominate his position every game and off-season he would always be the toughest hardest working guy on the field.

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

My biggest pet peeve would be no effort. It can be anything in life where if someone doesn’t show you any type of effort in anything they do then it’s invalid for them to even continue doing it. Tough times are gonna come to you but Giving effort shows a lot from you so no effort.

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome? 

My biggest adversity that I had to overcome was getting through when my pops died. It was the toughest pill to swallow that I ever went through in my life. He taught me how to be a man at an early age and Introduced me to being a leader as well at an early age.

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

Sam Houston is a very special school because we just won a national championship 2 weeks ago and creating a bond with my teammates and being so close brought us a championship back to Huntsville and that relationship will never go away cause those are my brothers forever.

What is your favorite snack food? 

My favorite snack food that I like to eat is Cheezits or Wheat Thins.

What is the funniest part of football? 

The funniest part of football is seeing the celebrations when the Defensive lineman celebrates getting a sack or a tackle for loss is funny to me.

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say? 

I am the most athletic, versatile offensive lineman you can find. I have very long arms for my height and big hands as well.

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be? 

If I could compare myself to an NFL player, I would say I’m like Dion Dawkins. Quick out of his stance, not the tallest tackle but very athletic and strong as a tackle in the league.

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why? 

Three people I would eat dinner with that are gone would be my great-grandma, my grandpa, and my cousin Markese. The reason I chose these three because they all had a big impact on my life of the man that I am today and eating dinner with them would be the best moment in my life.
