What is something you have learned while playing football?

I have learned that working, as a team is a lot more important than individual stats. I also learn that working hard beats talent most of the time.

What style of play best describes you?

I would have to say fast and aggressive, because I like to make plays so I do whatever is necessary to get open and do whatever it takes to put my team in a positive situation.

Who are some of your biggest influences?

I would have to say my dad because he works hard for family and Lance Moore because he has always been one of my favorites and I try to resemble my game based off of him.

What made you decide to play wide receiver?

My dad was a wide receiver in high school so that always motivated me to play.

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

I need to work on my jumping and vertical so that I can go up and get the jump balls.

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

I think it was very organized, it was fun to play in, it was great competition, and it gave us great exposure.
