1.What sets you apart from other defensive backs?

  • I’d say probably my ball skills and physicality. I would also say I’m a very instinctual player.

  • I prepare for games by talking to my dad and brother. I will also listen to music while I watch some film on my opponent.

3. If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

  • If I could hang with any football player it would have to be Tyrann Mathieu or Jamal Adams. I feel like those guys have a lot of fun on the field and I could learn a lot from them as well.

  • Honestly I’ve known since I was about 7 years old when I first started playing.

6. What is your favorite coverage and why?

  • My favorite coverage is probably cover 2. I say this because I have the ability to control a whole side of the field.

7. What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

  • I believe I bring different energy than most. I would say I’m not the biggest ra-ra guy on the field. I bring most of my energy through making plays for my teammates.

8. What are your favorite moments from your football life?

  • My favorite moments are scoring two touchdowns in Reliant Stadium and also being able to still play this game at this level it’s a blessing !

9. What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season?

10. What would a team get in a player like you?

  • I believe a team would get a player who is willing to do anything for his teammates and coaches. A team would get a player who knows how to win and knows how to inspire others to as well.

11. What do you love about the game of football?

  • I love the relationships and the physical grind of the game. I believe that there is no team sport like football. You truly have to be a close knit or your team will be worth nothing.

12. What is your favorite workout?

  • My favorite workout is hill sprints. Back where I’m from there in Houston there is a huge hill all the athletes will go to and it’s very therapeutic.
