When did you become introduced to the game of football?

I was around five or six years old when I started playing football.

What has football taught you about yourself as a person?

Football has taught me how to keep fighting and it has helped me build character.

Who is your biggest motivator?

My teammates are my biggest motivators because we compete and they always help me with a lot of things.

What is your most memorable game?

It was last year in the state semi-finals game that would decide whether or not if we would be going to state.

As a wide receiver that lines up in the slot is that your preferred area of the field?

I love it because I’m very quick, I can run good routes, and I have great hands.

What is a part of your game that you are trying to improve?

I’m always trying to improve my route runner because I like to pressure the defensive backs by getting them on their toes and overall just sharpening my routes.

What did you think about the Louisiana Gridiron Football bowl game you played in recently?

It was a fun experience as far as meeting new players and build new bonds with them.
