A: “My favorite football memory is when I was 7, I ran for my first touchdown untouched for about 40 yards and the joy I had was unexplainable.”

Q: Describe your work ethic? 

A: “My work ethic consists of on and off-the-field work, eating is a big thing for me because I have a super fast metabolism so eating as much as I can to gain weight is crucial, and doing extra reps every single chance I get especially in the weight room and conditioning if it even seems like someone’s out working me or close I try to outwork them and myself to where it’s not even close. I would say work ethic is 80% mental

Q: What is something you would want college coaches to know about you?
