Why did you start playing the game? Was it a person who influenced you? If so, who and how did they influence you? I found a love for the game when I was in 3rd grade attending football camp at Auburn University. My passion for the long snapper position came about that same year when working with the offensive line coach, JB Grimes, on snap drills. He told me that I was the top snapper of the day and I knew from that moment I wanted to pursue that position.
What are some of your personal and team goals this season? My personal goals include increasing the speed of ball movement from myself to the holder/kicker during the snap. I am also working on increasing distance of snap. Team goals include strengthening my abilities of defense to assist in tackles.
What would your teachers say about you? My teachers say that I remain a positive peer role model among my classmates. I willingly participate in classroom activities and discussions. I keep a smile on my face and help others around me during difficult times.
Who is your favorite player and why? Derrick Brown - Derrick was, and remains, a positive influence in my life since he was my coach at Auburn youth football camp. He not only taught us the values found on the field, but he showed us how to be a successful student athlete. His commitment to both his team and his friends/family is seen in every action he takes. He remains a positive role model in his community as well.
Why should a college coach recruit you in the future? I am hard working, dedicated and focused on the end goal of being the best athlete I can be. I remain coachable, willing to take suggestions and criticisms. I will be the first on the field and the last to leave if needed to get to the success of the team and my personal goal.
