What got you started playing football?

Through hard times, I’ve found football is good way to release anger and frustration.

 

What has football taught you about life?

Football has made me grow up – even faster than I wanted to. Sometimes you’ll be down, but you have to get up. When you’re tired you have to keep going. Also, if you want something in football, you have to work for it and that carries over to life.

 

How would you describe yourself as a player in a few words?

Leader and versatile.

 

Where do you see football taking you in the future?

I see God letting me use football to get my education and chase my dream of getting to the NFL and I feel when I get there I can be different. My body and my build – I’m just a different player.

 

What is the strong point of your game?

I’m physical, have great range and tough.

 

Is there a college or professional player you model your game after?

I feel like I can play in the box similar to a guy like Grant Delpit.

 

Who’s been the biggest influence on you as a football player?

A woman named Jessica Walker. She took me in and sat me down and told me I need to figure it out. She guided me because she didn’t want my talent to go to waste. She taught me how to be a man.

 

What are you bringing to Louisiana Tech that makes you special?

Grit. Nobody can stop me from my goals. One day I am going to be the best and I believe that in my heart.
