1. What was the most important thing you learned during your career?
One of the most important things i learned playing football was that you reap what you sow. The harder you work and push yourself, the better you will be in the long run. Its a sport where you have to be self motivated and stay hungry and work for everything you get.
2. What qualities do you possess that makes you a candidate for a professional contract?
I have two years of professional experience over in Germany and i was an BSN All-American LB in 2012. I have been one of the best defensive players in europe both years i played. I have shown my athletic ability and versatility by playing every position on defense and i also played RB while in europe.
3. What motivates you on and off the field?
The success i will achieve on the field motivates me off the field to work harder and keep grinding. When i’m on the field winning the game and playing for the man next to me motivates me. Im the kinda person that hates losing more than i like winning. I want to be the best and with my play make the people around me better as well.
4. What was your major and why did you choose to study that field?
I was a business management with an emphasis in administration major. I choose this major because i enjoy business work and i’m good with money and numbers. I like to wear suits on a daily basis and i would like to go back to school and get my Masters in international business or finance.
5. What is your routine like as you pursue a professional opportunity?
I lift weights and train my body 4-5 days a week and a also hold down a full time job as well. I find time when i can to go out on a field and work on my hips and speed.
6.What is or are some challenges you faced in your career and how did you overcome them?
When i first graduated college i went to a couple combines for teams in America but i had received no offers and i was very discouraged. But i continued never the less to work out and get bigger and faster and continue my training and just 2 weeks before the start of the GFL season in Germany a team called me and said they would like to bring me over right away. My prayers were answered and my pro career began.
8.What are some of the contributions you made to your previous program?
What about the local community? My last team was the Munich Rangers and a contributed a great deal to this past season. I took them to a championship and won both games and moved their team up to the next division. I was the only American on their team and i played both ways at LB and RB. I also coached the team and helped the defense learn and perfect their technique. I was also involved in the coaching of their youth team, flag football team and their ladies football team. I played a big role in their organization.
9.What is your best asset as an athlete and why will it make you successful at the next level?
My best asset is my football IQ and my ability to find the ball and make a sure tackle. I have been told i have a nose for the ball. Im also a very aggressive player and i use that to my advantage. Im also a very strong player and i work out very consistently. I feel like all of this as a package will make me successful at the next level. My strength will help me to match up with all other players and my football IQ will allow me to break down and read plays quickly so that i can find the ball and make a big play to change that game.
10. What are your plans for a post football career?
Post football i would like to go back to school to get my masters and i would like to eventually own a company in the finance market or a international business. I would also like to have a family of my own.
11. What is your fondest memory playing football?
My fondest memory was in college football. It was the best time of my life and the friends I made on the team were awesome. We were a big family and in my senior season we went undefeated all year until the semi finals in the NAIA Championship series. We lost by a 56 yard field goal as time expired but my senior season was by far the best time i have ever had while playing football. It still hurts though because we should have been national champions.
