 How’d you end up at your current school? What was the recruiting process like? The recruiting process was great I held multiple division 1 offers before transferring from South Carolina state university to university of Charleston 


What gives you an advantage over other athletes at your position? I have the ability to either play slot or outside WR my built frame allows me to block linebackers and Defensive ends all while maintaining elusiveness to get past safteys and corners 


What does being a student of a game mean to you? I believe being a student of the game requires you to listen more than you speak. Also bring mature enough to understand you have to take the good with the bad and have an understanding that everything is a lesson also taking mental reps even when your not in.


How does being a WR reflect itself in your personal life? I believe being a WR reflects my personal life because playing this position you have be willing and unselfish in every aspect of the game. As a wide receiver you may not get the ball a lot each game maybe one game you have 12 catches the next game 2 catches being mature enough to understand I’m football and in life as long as you do your part to help win you is all that matters.


How would you describe your work ethic? You won’t find anyone who works harder. My work ethic is what kept me in football but also life. “A man that doesn’t work don’t eat” that’s a quote I live by 


What do you consider to be one of the more important things you learned from the coaching staff? how to conduct yourself as a man win or lose. A man shouldn’t bend or fold no matter how much life try to break you. 


What would you consider to be your biggest accomplishment in your sports career so far? I would say coming back from injury I banged up my shoulder my first year and the last 2 were my best years yet.


How did you hear about the National Scouting Combine? Coach Matthews on twitter


Why did you choose the National Scouting Combine? I heard a lot about this combine from friends and other athletes.


What do you hope to show people at the combine? I hope to show scouts and other kids that you don’t have to go to a big school to be considered good I believe there are plenty good athletes that are on the division 2,3 level and so on. All you need is an opportunity.


What was your Major? communications 


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

I would save giving back to kids who are less fortunate. I grew up in section so the fact that I made it this far I’m blessed now I want to show kids it’s possible maybe do some youth camps.


What is something unique about you that people would find interesting? I would say that I’m a caring person most people think that you have to be cut throat in this industry and only look out for yourself but I believe that it’s room enough at the top for everyone.


If you had the opportunity to play another sport professionally, what sport would you choose? I would choose basketball that was my first love.


Are you involved in mentoring, a charity or do you “give back” or “pay it forward” in your community? My family does a give back donation we give socks and food bags to the less fortunate during the holidays.
