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

  • Starting life without my mother 

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

  • Grady Jarrett 

Did you have a favorite player or team in the NFL when you were growing up?

  • Ray Lewis was my favorite player but my favorite team is the Pittsburgh Steelers 

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

  • Jeff Bezos, Lebron James, Bernie Mac. Jeff for money purposes of course. I picked Lebron because he has been in his profession since he was 17 or 18 or somewhere around that age. I would want his knowledge on how he managed to become the superstar he is and keep a clean record. Who did he surround himself with to make sure he continued to thrive and become more and more successful you know things like that. I picked Bernie because I know he would give me a much-needed laugh.
