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

I think some of the things that make me a top prospect at my position is my ability to understand my assignments on the field and my athleticism. 

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

I was 13 years old when I became interested in football, which was grade 9 of high school. That was my first opportunity to participate in the sport and, after that, I fell in love with the game.

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

That I take pride in my work ethic, especially my ability to adapt and learn from past experiences. 

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

A serious problem in our society, that has been made worse due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is homelessness. Therefore, I would donate to a cause that addresses homelessness. 

What is the best advice you have ever received?

One of the best pieces of advice that I have ever received is that you have to listen to learn. Listening is such a crucial skill that allows people to become more open-minded to the world around them.

Who was your childhood hero?

My mom. She is my rock and my foundation and without her I would not be where I am today. 

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

Michael Reid (LB). He is one of the hardest working individuals that I have ever met. Although, he has never received the recognition that he deserves, he continues to stay motivated and to work hard, which is what I admire about him. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Sharing food with people (of course)

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

I had (and still have but not to the same degree) a pretty serious speech disorder when I was younger. However, I was able to overcome that difficult moment in my life with countless hours of speech therapy.  

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

Columbia Icefield is a sport facility at the University of Waterloo where I have made a lot of memories during my time as a student-athlete. From early morning runs, workouts, practices, and pick-up basketball games, these are just some of the many fun activities that I have donewithin that building.  

What is your favorite snack food?

I love pizza logs, however they are very difficult to get in Canada

What is the best part of football?

The best part about football is being part of a team. The friendships that you make playing football are the type that last a lifetime.

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

I would say that some of my best attributes is that I am hardworking, determined, kind, honest, loyal, and dependable. 

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

I would compare my game to Joe Staley. He was reliable, sturdy, and athletic when he played the game, which is why I try to style my game after him.

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

Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Tom Brady. I would love to pick their brains about their journeys and careers.
