When did you start playing football and when did you begin to like playing football?

I was seven years old when I started playing football and afterwards that’s when I started to like football.

Do you have any role models?

Grant Delpit because I like how he plays safety and I try base my play style from him and in general previous safeties from LSU like Jamal Adams and Tyrann Mathieu.

Do you play any other sports?

I run track and play basketball.

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

I am always trying to work on improving my covering skills.

How would you describe yourself in one word?

Humble, the reason why is that I like to use my actions on the field more than my words.
