What did you enjoy about the combine and coaches? Playing in AT&T stadium was surreal. I enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends. I enjoyed going through the different drills at the combine.
What would your teachers say about you? My teachers would probably say that I am polite and well mannered. I get along well with my classmates and follow instructions well.
What do you love about the game? Who do you look up to on and off the field? I love everything about the game! Football is in my heart. I can’t imagine my life without it. I don’t have one particular person that I look up to but am blessed to have many positive and encouraging role models in my life such has my parents and many coaches and trainers that I have had throughout the years. My parents are always encouraging me and pushing me to be the best version of myself.
Why should a college coach recruit you in the future? I believe I am a well-rounded athlete. I have athleticism and work very hard on and off the field. During the 2021-2022 school year I played baseball, football, and ran track all while maintaining a 3.5 GPA or higher. I believe nothing should be handed to anyone, but you should have to work hard for everything great in life. I am willing to put in that work. I believe it’s important to be a good person on and off the field. It’s important to build relationships with your teammates and to be a team player.
