When did you start playing football?
I started playing at the age of 7. I played for the Susan Park Seahawks.
Did you play any other sports growing up?
At first, I played basketball, but I had a friend who gravitated me towards football. I then fell in love with the game and the physicality of football.
Have you always played the position you play now?
When I was younger I played tight end and wide receiver. At the beginning of my high school career, I played D-line and O-line, now I strictly play center
Who are your biggest influencers?
My mother and grandmother. Growing up my father was not really in the picture so my mother and grandmother were always there for me and encouraged me. Then my mother passed away when I was younger, which motivated me, even more, to play and get where I want to be in life. As well as my coaches and my friends.
Which NFL players do you look up to and like to model your game after?
The 49’ers offensive tackle Trent Williams. His physicality on the field as well as his character off the field is something that I look up to. Additionally, the Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce because of his physicality while playing.
What has been your favorite highlight so far in your football career?
Meeting all of the new people I have met through playing football. With my teammates being around them, I feel like I can be myself.
What motivates you to keep playing football even when it is tough?
My teammates. The time we have during practice and strength and conditioning even though it is mentally and physically tough just being around them motivates me to be the best that I can be.
What is your biggest strength as a player?
I would consider myself a very good pass blocker, an anchor. When I have my hands up it is like no one can get past me.
What has football taught you about yourself?
Just keep pushing. When we are running during the offseason sometimes I wonder am I going to make it through and at that point, I tell myself to keep pushing and I am going to make it through because this is something that I want.
If you were in the NFL what would be your cause for My Cause My cleats?
Health. Your health is very important. My mother passed away due to heart failure, so being able to honor her and bring awareness to that would be important to me.
