Football - Safety
What is your career highlight so far?
Receiving a division one scholarship. Without my college coaches believing in me coming out of high school I wouldn’t have had the chance to play college ball.
Who were your heroes growing up?
My parents and my younger brother were definitely my heroes growing up. I always wanted to be the kind of parents, friends, brother, people, etc they are. Seeing how they treated other people and how hard they worked has always inspired me.
What current NFL player do you play most like?
I try and model my game the most after Ed Reed. I’ve always enjoyed watching the way he plays growing up. Considered one of the biggest defensive game changers and that’s what I try to do when I play.
Who has been the toughest player you have faced?
I’ve faced a lot of good players throughout my college career, rather that was in practice or in a game. Chris Wells is probably the guy who sticks out the most.
Why should an NFL team draft you? What can they expect from you?
I believe I bring a game changing style of play to a team. If its on special teams or on defense I feel Ill be the guy who will make the play our team needs. They can expect a great leader and a hard worker.
What was your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject would have to be gym, but my favorite class was construction technology I had taken my sophmore year in college.
What advice do you have for an aspiring football player?
Never let anyone tell you what you can’t do. Always continue to outwork everyone and chase your dreams. When I was in high school people always told me I couldn’t play college ball. I ignored all the nay sayers and just keep working towards my goal. Once I had received my scholarship people continued to tell me I wasn’t good enough to play at the Division One level. So I went out and became all conference three straight years and an all-american. Now people tell me I’m not good enough to be in the NFL even though I ended my career as the NCAA Division One interception leader. So I’m just going to keep working like I always have and lets see how things turn out.
