When did you start playing football and when did you begin to like playing football?

I was 10 years old when I started playing and I began to like playing football in the 6th grade.

What is something you have learned while playing football?

I am a better person now because of football; it has really changed me for the better.

Do you have any football players that inspire you or you can compare your style of play to?

I love watching J.J. Watt play and Khalil Mack is someone I try to compare my style of play to.

Who are some of your biggest influences?

100% all the way are my parents and my defensive line coach Brett Koonce who has really been pushing me the extra mile at getting better.

Do you play any other sports?

I run track. My events in track are the javelin and the shot put.

What made you decide to play on the d-line?

It weird because I have been playing tight end my whole life and then in the 8th grade my coach saw how fast I was off the line and since then I have been playing defensive end.

How do you prepare physically and mentally for a game?

Physically I drink plenty of water and I eat right. Mentally I go to team meetings and watch plenty of game film.

What are your goals for your senior year?

I am just trying to get better everyday and make it to the next level.
