What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?
What made me want to be a football player was how I grew up, my family was always a football family so I grew up around the game and consistently attending northwestern games and watching the Chicago Bears.
What sets you apart from other running backs?
What sets me apart from other running backs is that I have an unteachable ability of keeping people off my legs, the ability to break tackles and an understanding of the blocking schemes.
What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?
The biggest key to success on the football field is communication, between coaches and teammates. Another thing that is extremely important is having strong relationships with your teammates, because when things get difficult on the field the only way to get the best out of everyone is to fall back on the relationships you have built.
If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
I would want to hang out with Marshawn Lynch, he is my favorite running back and I admire his play style and his personality is infectious.
What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?
I try my best to bring calm and confident energy on the field for my teammates to feed on because as a leader people tend to reflect the energy I bring and have confidence is key to performance and being able to be calm in a high stress situation is the best way to be able to come out of it on top.
What is your favorite offensive scheme and why?
My favorite offensive scheme would have to be any type of inside zone. It is very easy to adjust to any type of defense and can be blocked multiple ways and the running lanes can be anywhere so it is good for running backs with good vision.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?
Mainly with a faith in God and what is happening is happening for a reason and I am meant to learn and grow from it, not dwell on it.
What would a team get in a player like you?
A team would get someone who is dedicated to the culture and dedicated to make my teammates better and do whatever I can to put our team in the best position to win.
