Q: Tell us about your college career and what the recruiting process was like. Why did you choose University of La Verne?
A: Well I went to Junior College coming out of high school, The JC was Sacramento City College. I had a lot of fun there and was all state, all American, and put up some good numbers. Also while my time there I helped lead both my freshman and sophomore year teams to bowl games. After junior college I Got offered to go play at the University of West Florida. That didn’t end up working out and I made my way back to California and decided to go play at The University of La Verne. It was a fun experience and I made some good friendships that will last a lifetime from JC all the way to me playin my at La Verne.
Q: What would you consider to be your biggest accomplishment in your sports career so far?
A: Individually I would say being named a 3 star coming out of JC and being selected as All American and All state. The biggest team accomplishment would probably be winning our bowl games.
Q: What do you consider to be one of the more important things you learned from the coaching staff while playing at University of La Verne?
A: Playing at Sac city the coaching staff taught me accountability and integrity. Playing at University of La Verne that coaching staff taught me the value of the person over the teammate. They taught me that the connection we make with people can go a lot deeper than just football and I valued that.
Q: What was your major and what are your plans if football doesn’t work out?
A: My major was Criminal Justice and my plan of football doesn’t workout is to become a FBI agent.
Q: What would your current/past teammates say about you and your qualities?
A: My teammates would say that I’m 100% reliable. They would say that I’m the biggest competitor they know and demand competition from everyone around me. As far as my abilities they would probably speak about my route running abilities and my ability to get open. I’m a natural strategist and I used that while playing ball.
Q: What has been one of the most memorable plays of your career at any level?
A: I’ve scored walk off touchdowns to win games and things like that but the most memorable play of my career happened when I was maybe 10 years old playing in a playoff game against our rival team at the time. Early in the game I fumble the ball and they scored off that fumble I was upset with myself and I was also upset because we were losing. Also the game was almost over, but mid way through the 4 quarter something clicked and I turned my anger from fumbling earlier in the game into motivation and I ended up scoring a 50 yard touchdown and we ended up winning the game. After that game I realized that I could do this and do it a high level.
Q: What has been your biggest challenge and how do you manage it?
A: My biggest challenge is basically the things I can’t control. How tall I am and all of that. The way I manage that is by controlling the things I can control like my work ethic, my ability to learn and retain new techniques and how I compete.
Q: If you could compare yourself to a pro athlete, who would that be and why?
A: One of my all time favorite players is Steve Smith Sr. And if I could I would say that I compare to him with how competitive I am. I turn everything into a competition and that’s one of the things that helps me propel my game.
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 my reliability and my competitiveness. Day in and day out I’m going to give you all I got and compete.
Q: Are you involved in mentoring, a charity or do you “give back”/”pay it forward” in your community?
A: Before I left to go to school I participated in many events that were for the youth, mainly youth football players or youth athletes in general to show them what it’s like being a collegiate athlete and what it’s like attend a college football game.
Q: How are you preparing for the 2020 National Scouting Combine and what are your goals?
A: My goals are to compete and to give it all I got. I’m preparing by training at the facility I’ve been training at called Playmakers elite. Also by training with Big Routes for my field work.
Q: What would be your ultimate achievement?
A: The ultimate achievement would be to take car of my mom. My family in general but more specifically my mother. She’s sacrificed a lot for my brothers and I and the least I can do is make sure she’s good.
Q: What do you enjoy doing when not playing football?
A: I enjoy building cars and playing with my puppy.
Q: Who is or has been the most influential person in your life?
A: The most influential person on My life has been and still is my mother. Like I said before she’s sacrificed a lot, she’s showed me what it means to hustle and what it means to work hard for what you want. She is a big reason as to why I’m in the position I’m in and I owe a lot of my success to my mom.
Q: What is something unique about you that people would find interesting?
A: Something unique about me that people might find interesting is that I love to work on cars. Cars are probably my second passion.
