How long have you been playing football and what got you started playing?

I’ve been playing since I was seven years old. My brother played college football and later played Canadian football, so I picked it up and tried to make myself better and now I love the game.


What has football taught you about life?

Football has taught me that you need to have patience and work hard. I know that I need to not give up and that I can be what I want to be in life and football has helped me realize that.


How would you describe yourself as a football player?

As a player I’m tenacious and I’m tough. I bring a lot of energy to the team.


Where do you see football taking you in life?

I want to get a scholarship and take it to the next level and see how far I can get, because I want to go all the way.


As a wide receiver, what is the strong point of your game?

My big play ability. Any time you come to me, I’ll make any play you want me to make. My quickness and speed allow me to be able to do what is necessary to make plays.


What do you bring to a team that makes you special?

I work hard and always try to get better.
