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

NFL teams should know that I will give my all in everything that is asked of me. I do not mind starting from the bottom whether it’s practice squad, special team or any other opportunity because I have been at the bottom many time in life and I do not mind working hard. My effort is always going to be top tier.

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

I would donate to all of the foster homes in the world because I was in there shoes when I was young. 

Who was your childhood hero?

My childhood hero is my grandmother because she took me in when we did not have anything

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

Collin Leyden is the most underrated player on my team because of his height and speed but when you put him on the field he can execute. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is when someone claims they love the game of football but does nothing to make themselves better.

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

I had to overcome being abused, locked in closets, times meals, and much more when I stayed with my mother as a child.

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

Bluefield State gave me an opportunity to play the game that I love once again and the coaches pushed me in everything that I was doing in the classroom and on the field 

What is your favorite snack food?

My favorite snack food would have to be honeybuns and rice crispy treats. 

The NFL Draft is quickly approaching, If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say? 

I will run through a wall for any team that picks me up.

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

It would have to be Karl Joseph because we are similar in height and weight but will run sideline to sideline all game in every phase 

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

Will Smith, Rodney Harrison, and Dick Gregory because they would inform me on so much in life that a regular person would not realize. They would show me how to be successful in many aspects of life.
