What do you love about the game of football?

Alot of it is the grind part, the challenges and the relationships.

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

Tavon Austin, I say Tavon because he is a smaller guy like me and he plays bigger than his size and has that dog mentality.

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

I bring a light to the field and I’m always appreciative.

What sets you apart from other running backs?

I’m a threat outside in the passing game and having different matchups with linebackers.

What are you looking to achieve as a football player going forward?

I don’t want to be a guy that just makes it. I want to be a impact player in the league on whatever team I get on.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

What would a team get in a player like you?

Gonna get a hard worker, a dedicated guy, hungry and has a chip on his shoulder.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

With me I’m a guy that likes to process stuff and I a thinker so I know I can get through anything.

What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?
