1.How did becoming a football player happen for you?

I always grew up watching games with my dad and grandpa. My immediate family used to live out in a remote village in Alaska where football wasn’t played but my parents moved to a bigger town in Alaska when I was in 4th grade in order to give my siblings and me more opportunities with sports and school. As  soon as we moved I started playing little league and have been playing ever since.

2.What are your favorite things about playing football for Oklahoma Baptist?

The feeling of us coming together as a team and a family and working to compete. When I first got here that wasn’t the atmosphere that we had, but in my time here we’ve progressed a lot. I also love my teammates and spending time with them on and off the field.

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

I bring calm and focused energy. I like to stay cool during games but still get hyped when we score and things like that.

4.What sets you apart from other offensive linemen?

I would say my ability to adapt and compete. 

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

From a players perspective I’d say team cohesion on both sides of the ball and individual effort.

6.What is your favorite workout?

Probably bench press.

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

Probably, Joe Thomas, he seems like one of the most technically sound linemen I’ve watched and I think I could learn a lot from him.

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

Ultimately I just want to be a good teammate. But my personal goal would be to become an impactful starter and then the sky’s the limit from there.

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

My mindset is focused on my game and that I need to do my job to help my team win, when it comes down to it I’m playing for the guys next to me and for us to succeed. 

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

A team would get someone that always competes and comes to work everyday. They would also be getting someone with a high desire to succeed and a passion for the sport.

11.What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season?

I’m looking forward to everything about this season. I feel very confident in our team and the work and preparation that we have put in since the last time we stepped on the field. I think we have a chance to do something great. And individually I am looking forward to my last collegiate season being the best one yet. 

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

I would say my ability to adapt and compete at a high level.
