1.What role do you hope to have if you make it into the NFL?

I am willing to take on any role for the betterment of the team. I will be able to contribute to the run game, passing game, and special teams. 

2.What has been your biggest challenge in life?

The loss of my God Mother and God Sister in a year and a half span. Our families were very close and the loss of them has been something that motivates me to work as hard as I can and be the best that I can be in all aspects of life. 

3.What are your favorite things about playing football for Roosevelt University?

The culture, the environment, the ability to be yourself, and the comradery are all things I love about playing for Roosevelt. Everyone takes care of each other and those are important keys for a successful team. 

4.What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

I am a very positive player. Whenever things are not going as planned I try my best to lead by example and stay calm and I believe my teammates can feed off that energy. 

5.What sets you apart from other RBs?

My feel for the game, my versatility, and my vision are all things I believe set me apart. As well as being a sponge to new information. I’m constantly trying to learn and be a student of the game. 

6.What is your favorite workout?

Leg workouts and speed training. 

7.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

Alvin Kamara, he is somebody I model my game after. 

8.What is a moment in your football career that improved you as a football player?

Being named 2nd team All-American my sophomore year. It was a great honor but I knew there was still work to be done and that ultimately made me prepare harder for the following season. 

9.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

I’ve been around the game since I was about 4 years old. I always wanted to play so when I got old enough it was a no-brainer for my parents to put me in the sport. 

10.What would a team get in a player like you?

A team player, someone who will lead by example and give their best effort at all times. 

11.What is a skill that you have that you think translates into the NFL well?

My return ability on special teams and my ability to carry the ball and be a weapon in the passing game. 

12.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

I’m always calm and collected, I try to never let the moment get too big and just execute everything the best way I can.
