Did you play any other sports growing up?
Nothing organized, besides football.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Jovon Robinson, RB from Auburn. I played against him during my JUCO career. I rate him as 1 of the best RB I played against so far pound for pound.
Who is the most underrated player on your team?
I would say Ryan Markush, he plays WR. Smooth in his transitions. Always making big plays no matter the opponent or competition level, always catching passes that aren’t in his favor to catch. Look out for him!

I would say going to Junior college and dealing with the obstacles I faced there, it was the first time I was really on my own. Not to mention going to school for 3 yrs straight with no breaks, no vacations made it a lot more harder.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Not really, I just give thanks to the man above for being able to come out and play the game I love.

My 1st sack of the season against WKU. I also forced a fumble it went back for touchdown.

Who was your favorite NFL team growing up?
New York Giants

Bob Marley, Muhammed Ali and Rihanna
