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

What makes me a top prospect in my position is my versatility on the field. My speed and  my involvement on special teams as well as my ability to make plays when needed.

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

Started playing at age six been in love ever since.

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

One thing NFL teams should know about me, is I am a high energy and dependable player on and off the field.

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

If I could donate to one cause it would be going towards education in lower financial areas. To assist in building the youth that grew up like me.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

“That time is still going tick” Meaning that no matter the situation, no matter how hard or bad it will pass because time waits on no man. Same for good situations as well which is why I believe you must never stop working even at the top.

Who was your childhood hero?

My parents, My mom because she made and still makes alot of sacrifices for me and my sister but always overcomes situations. My pops definitely, because he stepped into my life when I didn’t have a father and showed me how to be the man I am today and showed me that no matter how down you are, you can always bounce back. Also the person who talked my mom into me playing the game I love until this day (football).

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

That would have to be between one of our slots Geoffrey Wall or One of our Corners Jarrod Stanley.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Inconsistency, I believe one should be the same person all the time.

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

When it comes to adversity I cannot pin point a specific moment on which is the hardest for I have faced my fair share, but I can say that God got me through the situations and prayfully will continue to.

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

Coming into CSU (Charleston Southern University) I was in touch with God but not as much as I am now, CSU really brought me closer.

What is your favorite snack food?

Not really a snack person I like to eat meal meals, but on the bus on the way to away games I make sure I have some Twizzlers or the tropical blue pack of skittles with me.

What is the best part of football?

The game itself is its best part the game of football brings people from all type of backgrounds together to work for one goal, and being able to hit people as hard as you can and have no law enforcement involved.

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

With me you will get a reliable hard-working play maker, someone who is driven.

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

Anthony Walker or Devin Bush feel like the both of them have traits that resemble my play and they are both from South Florida like me.

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

Dinner with three people? All at the same time, would have to be Ray Lewis, Chad OchoCinco, and Channing Crowder. Because Within the three we have 1 of the best linebacker to ever play the game , 1 of the best receivers in my opinion to ever play the game and based off their podcast Iamathlete Channing is a person who speaks his mind no remorse and in life you need people like that. One interesting dinner for sure
