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

  • I feel what makes me a top prospect at my position is my ability of easily being coached. I’m quick off the edge and I Truly love this game. I’ve played since I was 7 and I have always loved this game. I like the fact that I know each day is one day closer to me approving my skills.

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

  • My dad would tell me stories about how I would always stay around a football. I remember around the age of 6 is when I personally remember my first interest in football. Next year when I turned 7 was my first year of playing. 

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

  • One thing NFL teams should know is that I’m easily coached and getting a great athlete. You can ask any of my coaches about that. 

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

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

  • “A hungry dog is a dangerous dog”

Who was your childhood hero? 

  • I never really had a childhood “hero” more of a villain, the joker. I never understood why the super hero always had to come save the day while the villains never win. I guess I like a good underdog. 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

  • My biggest pet peeve are negative people. 

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

  • I don’t feel that any moment Of adversity that I’ve faced can be defined as a “hardest moment”. Life if filled with ups and downs but it’s all about how you respond. 

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

  • My school is not like any other. There’s a ton of awesome clubs on campus. Mesa is known to also have the most d2  sports. This place is truly a special place that you would have to be apart of to know.

  • My favorite snacks are sunflowers seeds and any type of jerky. 

What is the best part of football? 

  • The best part about football to me is no matter race, religion, etc it brings all these people together to form a team. Without the team being a team there is none. 

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

  • I’m a D.O.G.!

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

  • Von Miller. 

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

  • Lawrence Julius Taylor “LT”, Grant Cardone, and Martin Luther King Jr. I feel I can learn enormous amount of knowledge from each one of these men.
