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

  • I am a top prospect at my position for the sole fact I am a versatile player. I have different dynamics and God-given tangibles that give me the upper hand. I have a big arm and can sling the ball, I can put the ball on a frozen rope from 30-50 yards out, and can put it 75 in the air. I have a big stride but I am surprisingly quick in and out of cuts which allows me to contribute in the run game. 

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?
  • For most the simple answer might be “For as long as they can remember” or “around a young age” but for me, football was something I was born with. I left the hospital in football-related clothes. I have a football-related room. I watched my older brothers play football, it’s all I shall, it’s all I ever did and all I ever thought about. I’ve been interested in football all of my life. 

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

  • I have overcome a lot of hurdles in my life and my journey is one that will inspire people. No matter the obstacles I have faced I have always found a way to come out stronger, because of that I am willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. No amount of work is too much.

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

  • The dream is to one day start my own foundations that will join the fight against homelessness. If I had to pick one right not it would be rather The Salvation Army USA. 

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

  • One night when I was with my QB training I was really upset he made me stand up against the wall and fall to the ground. As I’m laying there on my stomach he tells me to stand up exactly where the crown of my head was, as I stood up he told me to look behind me. As I looked behind he said how far are you from the wall. I was about 6 feet from the wall. He asked me how many more times and I whiling to fall to reach the other side of the room. I said as many as it takes, he said “then keep falling, keep getting up, keep trying, only you can get yourself to the other side.”

Who was your childhood hero? 

  • My Mother is my hero.

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

  • Rafael Floyd, a transfer WR from a now such down Urbana College. He broke his ankle right before the spring season started but he is one of the most driven and hard-working people I have been around in a very long time. 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

  • Dishonesty

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

  • I have faced many struggles throughout my life everything you can think of from borderline homelessness, living without food, single-parent home, My mother has been sick for a very long time, I battle anxiety, depression, OCD and, dyslexia… but honestly non of these things are hard. I am the exact person God has intended me to be in this very moment. No matter the hurdles and mountains me and my family have had to climb we have always gotten through it. We have no regrets and we don’t feel sorry for ourselves because Gods plan and purpose will forever outweigh physical or worldly emotions and pain. 

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

  • The University of Charleston is a mixing pot of people. We have people from all over the world. Even though we are a small school we have exchange students from different parts of the world and have people from almost every state. It is a special place for me personally because it was the place I meet some real friends. I meet the love of my life and meet coaches I know will be mentors and guiding lights for me for the rest of my life. I found a major I enjoy, I found a community in the mountains of West Virginia where people truly just want to help others. 

What is your favorite snack food? 

  • Nutty Bars 

What is the best part of football? 

  • The connection of heart body and soul. For me football is my calling and my life when I am doing it, it is an escape from worldly issues when I’m playing football I am my truest self. 

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

  • I will not be out worked. 

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

  • Josh Allen, is a big body QB with a big arm, able to run when needed, and he lacked a bit of accuracy coming into the NFL but with the right coaches around him he’s become one of the best. 

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

  • Gandi 
  • Hal Mumme, inventor of the Air Raid offense. 
  • My Mom, She would be mad if I didn’t bring her lol
