When did you start playing football?

I started playing flag football at 5 years old. Played four years then I didn’t play again until Junior High.

What is it that makes you love the game?

Love how it makes everyone on the team closer. You need everyone out there and everyone needs you. You have to be able to trust in one another and that’s why I love it.

Who do you model your gameplay after?

Tim Tebow because how he gave all glory to god and gave his heart on the field.

Growing up, did you play any other sports?

I played baseball my whole life until my freshman year. I played third base and I pitched.

What area of your game would you like to improve on this off season?

I would like to improve on my run game more. Just keeping the defense on their heels more.

What would college coaches be most impressed with about you?

My coachability. I want to be coached and I want to learn what I’m doing wrong and how to fix it.

What are your expectations for next season?

To go far as a team and I know we can, we have the playmakers to do so. I want to have over 2,000 yards throwing and at least 20 passing touchdowns.

What have your learned about yourself while playing football?

I learned that your brain tells you to stop but your body can handle more. You have to push yourself. I’ve also learned that one man cannot carry a team, it takes every man on the field to do their job in order to be successful.

What would your coach say about you?

That I’m coachable and that I’ve done everything he’s asked of me, listened to him, and learned from him. I’m always eager to keep my teammates motivated. I pick up easily on new concepts and am eager to learn.
