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

  • I feel as I have strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. I Track the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.

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

  • About the age of 3 or 4

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

  • Am adopted and have a knotty grit to fight to win ball games. I don’t give into pressure easy and think very thorough before making decisions. Very intellectual when it comes to communication and creating with others.

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

  • Helping kids with being adopted or child care services. As being adopted it isn’t easy or it can be difficult living home to home in fosters so finding a solid family for any kid or adult of that matter is huge to me.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

  • Mmm personally on a basic level liars, but people who go back on their word and can’t expect change when they know it’s right is hard as well.

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

  • Growing up in a predominate non cultured area and community. Being the literal black sheep of society and area can put a lot of outside noise, pressure, and stews on one’s life as some people can’t relate to everyday problems you have.

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

  • For New Mexico I would have to state the traditions and how they don’t quit and all those players become family and buy into each other. It really is once a Lobo always a Lobo. As for Colorado State would have to say that’s the hometown team. Living and working behind the stands to always wanting to play on that field. My Momths favorite color is green as well as, Alpha(Dad) works and has coworkers who graduated from there that always talk about the school as a kid so naturally I fell in love with them.

What is your favorite snack food?

  • Toasted Cheez-Itz are always a smoove go to but my families homemade tortillas with butter or peanut butter on them always be a small snack.

What is the best part of football?

  • Team chemistry is always something I love about the game. Gives you that connection of brotherhood with people for life that you can’t find no where else accept through hard work, dedication, and trustworthiness.

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

  • Attitude, effort, and character all speak for itself don’t get it twisted.

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

  • Stefon Diggs or Deebo Samuel for sure

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

  • Malcolm X- Ask about how he see todays world and society and what he believes can and I can do to still make a change.
  • Jackie Robinson- Ask him about being first African American MLB big timer and what those trials and tribulations were like with his wife and all.
  • Billionaire Paul Allen- to ask how to create generational wealth for my family years to come down the line. Not just for myself and the best investments or things I should do to create major wealth for years to come.
