I think that my strength & speed are major things that set me apart from other offensive lineman & fullbacks. My bench is nearly 500lbs, power clean nearly 405lbs, and squat 650lbs, and I also weigh 295lbs with an estimated time of 4.8 in the forty yard dash.
2. If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
I would like to hang out with either Ray Lewis or Sean Taylor. Those guys were remarkably great on the field! I loved watching them perform at a high level.

I bring positivity & presence to the field. I try to uplift the players all the time while having great effort with a lion mentality.

I would say focus would be the most important thing to me as a football player because without focus you wouldn’t be able to transition into the footwork or skill correctly.
8. What is your mindset when you are on the football field?
My mind set when I’m on field is that I will last the longest out of all my opponents. I also try to make sure I run through a guy every single play even if it doesn’t happen every single time.

I would say the time when I actually focused and listened to my coaches my first year of college. It made me realize how much discipline & techniques matters.

They would get everything there is possible to be honest. I am a guy that loves to compete in everything I do whether if thats on or off the field in a good way.

I give every situation to God that I can’t handle, so that he can help guide in the right direction.

I love the contact!! I enjoy destroying a player until he gives up or can’t go anymore.
