What makes you a top prospect at your position in the draft?
- First and foremost just want to thank God for the talent and ability to even be considered a 2022 draft prospect. All the glory forever belongs to God. Being a smaller interior lineman has allowed me to not only perfect my craft as a technician, I pride myself on a lot of God given athleticism. Being athletic has allowed me to get out in space whether that may be pulling or on screens and make a difference for myself and my teammates. I have 37 starts under my belt which not many people are ever able to achieve. I have seen a lot of live action and bullets and feel that helps me to keep improving my game.
At what age were you first interested in the game of football?
- I have been playing the game of football since I was 8 years old. I was interested around age 6 and 7 but my parents felt 8 was the best age for me to get started.
What is one thing NFL teams should know about you?
- I’m a hard worker. I’m very dedicated to the game. I love the game of football. I have sacrificed a lot to even be in the position I am in today.
If you could donate to one cause in the world today, what would it be?
- I would donate to the homeless. It truly gets to me, when I see people without a home and asking for money because they are hungry. If I was given the ability to end both of those things in this world, I would.
What is the best advice you ever received?
- “Always be good to be people, its not on you for them to return the favor.”
Who was your childhood hero?
- My brother, Siafa Massaley, I wanted to be like him in every way growing up. He has played a major influence on my life and still does until this day.
Who is the most underrated teammate in the locker room at your school?
- Zyaire Horey, Jake Nitowski, Mason O’Neal and Tahj Brightaupt are all underrated. We are all offensive lineman, but they have influenced my game in ways they couldn’t even imagine. Each of them have played a significant role in my career on and off the field. Without them, I don’t even get the chance to be a potential prospect. As offensive lineman we will never get the credit, but they need to know coming from me they have played a major role in my career.
What is your biggest peeve?
- Wasting time. If something is going to waste my time and not get me to where I want to be, I want no part in it.
Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?
- I’ve dealt with a lot of things outside of the game of football. March 2019 was the toughest year for my family. We lost our solid foundations to the family. My grandmothers Tata and Mary Andrews Bing both passed away. It was hard on the family and something very difficult to go through. At the end of the day God was with us through it all and we can find comfort and peace that we will see them again.
Tell me something about your school and why it is important to you?
- My school is a very small private Christian Campus. It is very important to me because of how much closer I have grown to God since I’ve been here. I have also established significant long lasting relationships with my teammates and the faculty and staff on campus. Relationships are big at Shorter University and keep the place going day in and day out.
What is your favorite snack food?
- Trail mix indulgent
What is the best part of football?
- The best part about football is the brotherhood and bonds you make with your teammates daily. I think the game has a lot to offer than just on the field play. Everyone who plays football knows it fun to run around and hit people, but the game is able to do so much off the field it should not go unnoticed.
