As a player I am hoping to continue improving my level of play on the field to where I could be considered one of the best to play my position ever.

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

Sean Taylor is my favorite Football player of all time. I would love to be able to hang with him for a day. I believe we resemble the same mindset on the field & I would love to get to know him on a more personal level.

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

My grandma told me to “never let anything affect your inner peace “. That quote stuck with me my entire life & helps me get through everything. A positive mindset will always mean a positive outcome.

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

Being able to understand situations and having a high football IQ. Fully understand the game and not only knowing my position but what everyone does in certain sets and formations.

How are you preparing for the draft?

Currently I am training at Spooky Nook Sports with Darryl Daniel. We train four days throughout the week focusing on speed, strength & field work. On other days I like to focus on pilates or yoga to activate muscles I’m not use to using. I have also changed my style of eating to help transform my body incredibly.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My favorite Football moments would have to be playing with my relatives & close friends, playing in the FCS Bowl game, the opportunity to play HBCU Football & being coached by a close relative.

What sets you apart from other linebackers?

Many linebackers are uncomfortable once in coverage. I have the ability to dominate in the run and the pass game. I feel very comfortable when playing in space. I have the talent to play more than just linebacker. That’s where I separate from many backers.

What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

My father put the idea in my head at an early age, with the help of some older cousins and friends I looked up to. We played lots of street football growing up and I enjoyed the intensity the game came with. Once I was introduced to the game I fell in love with it enough to make it a job for a living.

What would a team get in a player like you?

A team would get a player willing to make what ever sacrifice is necessary for the betterment of the team. A guy that is versatile meaning if I was needed to play a position I have never played before I am willing to give it a try. My goal is to compete at the highest level that comes with the willingness to make sacrifices.

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

If my teammates are lacking energy I’d love to be the player to set the tone. Whether that’s with physicality or making a play. I like to keep my motor high at all times.

What do you love about the game of football?

I love the bond you can gain from one another playing football. You meet players from all over the country. It’s thrilling knowing how much talent is out there & seeing where your game truly is at going against other players. The networking that comes with the game of football is incredible. You never know where football can direct you. I treat football as if it’s my girlfriend. Football comes before anything. It must be treated just like a job in order to be successful at the game.
