1.What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?

Definitely intelligence and a player has to have heart for sure.

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

I’m a hyped up type player and like to turn my teammates up and get them excited.

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

Just helping the team whichever way I can.

4.What sets you apart from other defensive backs?

I bring more heart to the table then any player and help the team whatever way I can. And I feel like I’m a great leader.

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

I’ve been playing football since whenever I can remember and when I started doing it I just fell in love forever. I feel most comfortable on the football field and it’s a great way to express myself.

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

I’d have to go with Ray Lewis, he was one of my my favorite football players and one of the most intelligent players in my opinion to play the game. And I feel like he would give me a different way of looking at the game and opinion on life in general.

7.What is your favorite workout?

Push ups definitely.

My favorite thing is being the leader I am at the school paving the way for other players.

Somebody who is coming in with a team first mindset. A leader and somebody who is looking to have a good impact on his teammates.

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

We are at war and anybody lining up across from me has to go.

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

I would say tackling just because a lot of defensive backs aren’t willing to tackle and I’m willing to tackle all game.
