When did you start playing football?

I started playing football when I was around six or seven years old.

What impact does football have in your life?

The impact that it has in my life is that is teaches me teamwork with my teammates and discipline for the game I love. I love going out there with my brothers and fighting for them every night.  It also teaches me the brotherhood aspect in football.

What do you love most about the game?

The thing I love the most about football is being with my teammates playing on the field on Friday nights and off the field at school and other place.  Also the communication during the games and everybody doing their jobs every single night.

Do you see yourself as a leader on the team, and how do you try and lead your team?

Yes sir, I see myself as a leader for this team.  I always try to lead by example to try and show all of my teammates by being the hardest worker on the field, in the locker room, and weight room that I can be.

What hobbies do you have other that football?

Yes sir, that is a hard one. I would probably have to say fishing is my hobby.  Yes, definitely fishing would be my hobby outside of football.  I love to fish because it is something that I can get my mind off thing and i can get my alone time for myself.

What do you see for yourself in the near future?

In the near future, I see myself owning my own business.  The business that I want to try and own is a tractor company selling tractors and other types of supplies.
