A: Honestly not sure, I have never ran track before or trained with a trainer who focuses specifically on the 40. However, I have been clocked in the fastest 40 yard time for my school, And have set an All time school record with a 4.33
Me: That’s pretty dang fast man
Prince: I know I can break my own record. I know that I could reach 4.2’s with an experienced trainer.
Q: Are you a leader and take charge kind of person/player. Or a follower of shorts.
A: I’m a little bit of both, I love to lead by example and to take charge but also, I tend to fall toward the back to see how the less confident guys are doing, And lifting them up. Cause you’re only as strong as your weakest link on your team.
Q: What are your dreams, on and off the football field.
A: My dreams are to make it to the NFL/CFL. And to become the better me and play with some of the greats like Tom Brady, Antonio Brown, Cam Newton, And to also to break a few records and be the best person I can be while doing what I love. Off of the field, I hope to eventually use that platform to help me start up a business and go into partnerships. One of my main goals is to own something to pass down to my daughter/children.
