Your body is stronger than your mind and once you break those mental barriers you can do anything.

Who was your childhood hero? 

My high school, Coach Toosoon he changed my life around completely.

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

Nathan Moore the kid is easily the best linebacker I have went against he has height athletic ability and speed.

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

Someone lying to me.

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

The first scrimmage of my senior year of high school I ruptured my MCL and tore my PCL, and medial and lateral meniscus. They said it was a chance I would never play football again but here I am today.

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

Notre Dame College is a small school and since I stepped on campus everyone has treated me like family, we are all so close its like nowhere else I’ve been.

It is a little different but I love hot fries and dip them in queso cheese.

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

Orlando Brown, we both can play both RT and LT and very stout in pass pro 

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

The First would be Fred Hampton because he was probably one of the strongest and wisest young man I have ever heard about. The second would be Nipsey Hussle because he was one of the most inspirational artists ever.  The Last would-be Peyton Manning because he is the best QB ever to touch the field.
