What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2023 NFL Draft? 

I have a .75 snap to catch time on a 15 yard punt snap as well as my great agility and speed getting down field.

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

I was first interested in the sport of football at the age of 7 when I got my first football jersey. I soon fell in love with the sport

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

I am a hard worker who is disciplined and loves to compete.

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

I would donate to the cause of education in poor communities, so that all of our youth can get a good education

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

Don’t give up, I know it looks hard right now, but you will be glad you stuck with it in the end. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My Dad was my childhood hero, he showed me what it looks like to work hard. He also showed me what it means to carry on even when things are tough.

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

Josh Romain our running back. He was a great role of our team, he didn’t have very many carries this last season, but he worked hard in the weight room during the offseason and improved a lot.

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

When people do not rinse of their dishes after using them.

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

The hardest moment in my life was battling through the mental block of long snapping my freshman year of college. Once I got past that block my snapping improved and my confidence in my ability sky rocketed. 

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

I love the small community of our school. Everybody knows everybody, so you get to know a lot of people and it makes walking around campus fun! 

What is your favorite snack food? 

My favorite snack food is Peanut butter pretzel bites they are delicious and dangerous. If they are left around me they will be eaten.

What is the best part of football? 

The best part of football is the atmosphere. I love the energy the crowd brings. There’s nothing like running onto the field and making a play while having the crowd roar.

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

A simple man who works hard to achieve his dreams.

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

I would compare my play to Reid Ferguson, he is a solid long snapper who still keeps his faith as a top priority!

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

I would have dinner with Abe Lincoln, Jesus Christ, and Russell Wilson, I feel like all three of those guys are probably some pretty cool people. They would probably be pretty fun to be around too!
