I was introduced to the game of football when I was five years old. I started playing football at rec leagues in Lake Charles.

What are somethings that football has taught you?

Football has taught me about how to become a better man and football has taught me discipline. Football has also has taught me that failure is a part of life and that if you use it as an opportunity to learn then you can go on and become even more successful then what you first thought was possible. Football has also taught me about respecting every opportunity that is given to me.

I am a versatile football player that can play both sides of the ball. I am an athlete basically.

My father is because he is the reason why I play the game because I want to achieve what he couldn’t.

What made you decide to be a wide receiver?

Even though I had really good speed my size just wasn’t good to play running back so I just decided to play on the outside at wide receiver.

Which wide receiver do you compare yourself to?

Antonio Brown because I feel like I model my skill set and work ethic after him. I like how dominant Antonio Brown is because at his size compared to the other wide receivers how are bigger and stronger.

What is an area of your game that you are constantly working on?

I am constantly working on my route running because I want to make it crisper and I will be able to get more touches out of it. I mean what make a good or great wide receiver is his ability to get separation from the defensive back on his route running.
