When did you become introduced to the game of football?

I became introduced to the game at a very young age. Ever since I was a baby football has been in my hand and I knew that I wanted to play since then.

What are somethings that football has taught you?

Football has taught me to be responsible and also taught me how to work well with others. Football has also taught me how to work very hard for what I want or what the team wants.

How would you describe your style of play?

I would describe my style of play as a very balanced running back with much power with speed, vision and the ability to catch balls out the backfield and to also protect the quarterback.

Who are some of your biggest influences?

I would say my biggest influence is my dad because he played the game and he’s been teaching and preparing me for football before I could walk or even talk. I know he will lead me in the right direction.

What made you decide to be a running back?

I picked up a fumble one day when I was playing youth recreation football and I out ran over every one. That is when the coaches decided to move me to running back and I’ve stuck with it ever since.

Are there any football players you try to model yourself after?

One player that I try to model my self after is Leonard Fournette because he has the perfect combo of power and speed. He is also a player that can do anything on the field.

Do you play any other sports or have any hobbies?

I play basketball and my hobbies are to work on fixing computers and finding ways to better the technological field.

What is your greatest strength on the football field?

I would believe my greatest strength on the field is my leadership and I feel that my job on the field is to keep everyone in good spirits so that we can move on and make better plays.

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

The part of my game that I would want to improve is my stamina. I want to improve that so that if my coaches need me to play both sides of the ball I can be ready and so that I can be productive to the team for as long as I can.

What are your goals for your senior year?

My goals for my senior year is to win a state championship with my team and to simply just be the best teammate and the best leader that I can be. If I do those two things everything else will all fall into place.
