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

The things that make me a top prospect at my position are that I am a sideline-to-sideline backer. I’m also really good in the run and pass defense. I can get off blocks well and I can also pass rush good.

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

I was 7 years old when I first became interested in football and ever since then I fell in love with the game of football.

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

I’m a very hard worker and every day I come ready to work and perfect my craft.

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

If I could donate to one cause in the world it would be to the Cancer Research Institute.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

“Always work hard in whatever you do and always be humble”.

Who was your childhood hero?

My Brother and Ray Lewis

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

The most underrated player at my school right now is definitely Ramond Jackson.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

I’d say my biggest pet peeve is being late.

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

I’d say the toughest moment was coming to college not knowing what to expect and you literally being at the bottom of the depth chart because the coaches really don’t know how your game will translate to the collegiate level. I had to put in my mind that every rep counts so dominate by all means necessary and I ended up winning out the position.

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

The reason my school is special to me is because they really just want to see you grow and succeed in life. There are really so many resources at Kentucky Wesleyan for you to graduate and not get behind. Lastly the school fits me because it’s a lot more opportunity to get one on one time with your professors if you need help in the classroom.

What is your favorite snack food?

Welch’s Fruit snacks.

What is the best part of football?

I believe the best part of football is training and practice. The reason why is because yes, it’s going to be tough at times, but it’s no better feeling than when we start actually playing games and you see all that hard work paying off in victories.

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

I want to be the best at my position and will work hard to achieve that goal.

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

I like to compare my play to Fred Warner.

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

I would like to have dinner with Michael Jordan just because he is one of my favorite athletes of all time and he had a killer instinct to dominate you the entire game. Another person would be Fred Warner just because I would love to know everything and I would also want to learn some techniques that he uses when he plays. The last person would be Ed Reed and the reason why is because he was such a great leader on and off the field.
