Rodney Hudson, Raiders. Both him and I play with high motors, look to finish blocks and play with a high football IQ.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
Towards the end of the season my Uncle lost his long battle to lung cancer. He was my father figure in my life growing up. He taught me many hard lessons about winning and losing but never to dwell on the loss but learn from it and become better by the next game. I make a conscious effort to be a great man like him and make him proud in everything I do.

Usually I listen to a pre-game playlist on my phone for a while then take in my surroundings before hitting the field.

Making a key block on a pull this year to spring our running back Logan Holbrook (who played with me in high school at Spencer County High School) to a 60 yard run that sprung a comeback win over our PFL rival Dayton.
What is the coolest thing you ever did off the field for someone else?
I worked with my church Second Baptist Church Taylorsville in a program called “Dare to Care” where we would give food boxes out to needing families in the community.
Who was your favorite NFL team growing up?
I didn’t have a favorite team growing up, but I would watch the technique of the offensive linemen playing in the games so I could try to implement what they were doing to my own game.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
My Uncle, John Hannah and Drake.
