Q: Tell us about your college career and what the recruiting process was like?

A: My college career wasn’t typical but I enjoyed every minute of it. I wouldn’t change it for nothing. The recruiting process was amazing because I had several schools that showed a lot of interest in me. I really liked South Carolina a lot but I chose FSU because it felt more like home.

Q: What would you consider to be your biggest accomplishment in your sports career so far?

A: My biggest accomplishments would be winning two National Championships. One in Division I with FSU and one in Division 2 with Valdosta State.

Q: What do you consider to be one of the more important things you learned from the coaching staff while playing at your school?

A: I had several coaches but Coach Jeremy Pruitt challenged me and made me really realize that football can be taken away at any point. He knew how much talent I have but pushed me to work harder on the field and also in the film room.

Q: What was your major and what are your plans if football didn’t work out?

A: Sports Management then Liberal Studies. The second college that I attended didn’t have a Sports Management program so I majored in Liberal Studies. If football didn’t work out I would want to start a program to mentor the inner city youth while coaching High School or College Football.

Q: What would your teammates say about you and your qualities?

A: My teammates would say a lot about my belief in God, how hard I work and how much I want the team to win.

Q: What is your biggest strength that you bring to a professional team and why should pro scouts consider you?

A:My biggest strength is that I can play multiple positions at a high level. Im coachable and dependable. Pro scouts should consider me because I love the game I am not here just for the money.

Q: Who is or has been the most influential person in your life?

A: There are 3 people, My Mom, Stepdad and Dad.

Q: Are you involved in mentoring, a charity or do you “give back”/”pay it forward” in your community?

A: Yes I help coach and speak with kids that play Pop Warner football in my city during the summer.

Q: How are you preparing for the 2019 National Scouting Combine and what were your expectations?

A: I am training at D1 sports in Tampa, FL. My expectation is to give 100 percent and put forth my best effort.

Q: What would be your ultimate achievement?

A: Continue to make my dream come true taking one day at a time to get to the NFL and showing people that if you have faith in God it can happen. Also that you can reach your dreams coming from a Division 2 school. It can be done, prime example is Kenny Moore.
