Q: Tell us about your college career and what the recruiting/scouting process was like. Why did you choose Mount Union?

A: Out of HS I went to FIU then I transferred to Davenport and I finished my college career at Mount Union. I will say it was not an easy road but every school I learned something and to help me better myself as a player and a person. I felt God put me through these obstacles to prepare me for the main goal ahead.


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

A: The ability to keep improving and to keep on getting better and better to try and reach new limits.


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

A: One thing I took from Mount Union was to take advantage of every opportunity you are given because you never know when another one will come.


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

A: My major was sports management and after football I plan to go into the Coast Guard and also start to get into real estate.


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

A: I think my teammates would say I’m a very humble player and person who just comes to work everyday and wants to get better.


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

A: I would say my 99 yard touchdown against Ashland


Q: What has been your biggest challenge and how do you manage it?

A: Being able to adjust to new playbooks. Since I transferred three times I had to re-learn a new playbook and when I was struggling I would ask questions or me and my roommate would quiz each other on the whiteboard.


Q: Who was the best player you played against during your collegiate career?

A: I played against a lot of good players, it’s hard to choose one


Q: If you could compare yourself to a pro athlete, who would that be and why?

A: Anquan Boldin because the way he used his size and could catch the football


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

A: My size because I’m able to use my body and make those tough catches across the middle or when a DB is draped on my body.


Q: What do you enjoy doing when not playing football?

A: Playing video games and watching anime


Q: If you could make a positive impact on all of society what would it be and why?

A: Helping people in need especially when it comes to getting people off the streets because I believe people deserve a second chance and they just need an extra push from someone.


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

A: My parents


Q: What is something unique about you that people would find interesting?

A: I know how to play the violin and the drums


Q: If you had the opportunity to play another sport professionally, what sport would you choose?

A: Baseball


Q: What is your dream job?

A: Playing in the NFL
