What makes you a top prospect at your position  in the 2022 NFL Draft? 

  • I believe my speed at my size is something that is considered harder to find. Also my ceiling of potential is higher because I’ve only played football for 5 years.  

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

  • I was interested at a very young age and have watched it since I was about 3 years old. Played when I was younger but decided soccer was my sport to play up until my senior year of high school when I started to play again. 

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

  • They should know that I will do whatever I need to do off the field and, on the field, to make the team successful. Also, that I like to have fun all the time because I believe you’re most relaxed when you’re having fun.  

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be? 

  • I would donate to a foundation that focuses on orphaned children and helping them to find a forever home and providing them with what they need while they’re still waiting for adoption.  

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

  • Best advice I’ve received is a question I use to evaluate. “Would you miss it if it were to discontinue today?” I think about this when things are hard and handling adversity in any situation.  

Who was your childhood hero? 

  • My childhood hero was and will be my mom. She’s always worked so hard to be able to. Provide for me and she’s the main reason why I am where I am today.  

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school? 

  • Joshua Morris 100%. He brings a different attitude and intensity to practice and games every time and he has the most heart out of anyone else that I’ve ever played against, and he makes it a battle to better each other every time we line up across from each other.  

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

  • Biggest pet peeve is probably a liar because one lie always leads to another, and it loses trust.  

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

  • The hardest moment for me was more recent being the 2020 fall season. Thinking it was my last season and I separate my shoulder that seems like it would end my college career, but I rehabbed enough to come back for the final game and then getting the year of eligibility back for the following season. Was a low moment but just kept my head in a positive mindset to be ready for whatever would come my way.  

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

  • I believe my school is special because it is a smaller school, everyone knows everyone and there’s a lot more genuine relationships between the student body than at a big school. Everyone is very nice and genuinely wants to know how you’re doing whether it’s a coach, student, or professor.  

What is your favorite snack food? 

  • Nacho cheese Doritos 100%. Can’t beat one of the classics.  

What is the best part of football? 

  • Best part about football is the grind that you go through with your teammates. Those tough moments that you go through in offseason, camp, season, and postseason are what make those teammates your brothers and that’s something not everyone gets to experience in their life.  

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say? 

  • Best part about football is the grind that you go through with your teammates. Those tough moments that you go through in offseason, camp, season, and postseason are what make those teammates your brothers and that’s something not everyone gets to experience in their life.  

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

  • A goofy kid that likes to have fun while doing what he loves.  

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

  • I would compare myself to Mike Evans. In the aspect of fast but not the fastest, one of the taller guys and wins the jump ball more often than not.
