Q: Tell us about your college career and what the recruiting/scouting process was like. Why did you choose (Enter school name)?

A: I am from a small town in Senatobia, Mississippi. Due to my location and school, it was difficult to get recognized by a wide-reaching audience within the football community. I chose the school that was best fit for my family’s financial situation as well as my education but not necessarily best fit for chasing my dreams.

 

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

A: I would say being the All-Time Leading Rusher at Kentucky Christian. I was almost redshirted my freshman year, but props to my family because they kept encouraging me to the the best. It was a long season I went from 6th string running back to 1st string running back to breaking school records my freshman year.

 

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

I try to do something daily to make a positive impact. Whether it be words of encouragement or even giving someone a ride who has no car. I live to make a difference daily.”

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

Q: What has been one of the most memorable plays of your career at any level?

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

I’m still learning things and I’m still getting better.
