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

I would say my size alone I’m 6’3 and I love to tackle hard. I can help any NFL team being 6’3 and not afraid to hit. I’m also hungry and consistent with my workouts!

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

I was about 8. 

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

The mistakes I made and the adversity I faced made me who I am today. 

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

I would donate to the homeless and hungry children for sure. 

What is the best advice you have ever received?

“Get ugly on everybody” 

Who was your childhood hero?

Really didn’t have one. I would really say myself knowing what I had to get through alone. 

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

Godwin Joe

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Quitters, definitely ones who would be around me.

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

The one moment that stands out would be growing up without my parents, and leaving my Mom at a young age. 

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

It’s a Catholic school. I say it’s special because of the teammates I’m around I have a great group of guys. 

What is your favorite snack food?

Honey Buns or Swiss Rolls

What is the best part of football?

The brotherhood and lessons you get during the season. 

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

I don’t give up no matter how hard things get. 

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

Personally I don’t know I feel my game is unique. I have been compared to some players like Jamal Adams, Sean Taylor, haha Clinton-Dix. 

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

Denzel Washington, Lebron James, Ed Reed. I would say these are some great role models and I would learn a lot from these group of guys.
