I also played basketball and ran track.
Have you always played wide receiver?
Growing up I played multiple positions such as wide receiver, cornerback, quarterback, running back, tight end, safety, and even defensive end. After playing each position I felt I was best at cornerback and running back.

I would consider myself a good punt returner. I am able to break tackles and make plays for my team which helps us succeed in the end.
What has football taught you about life and yourself?
You don’t always have to do something one way. My teammates would run routes differently than I would and it would show me that there are different ways to get to your goal. You do not have to do it one way to get where you want to be. As well as knowing that anything you put your mind to, you can get it with hard work and dedication.
What would be your My cause My cleats?
Giving students a second chance. Colleges only have a limited amount of scholarships for athletes. Being able to give to colleges to be able to make more scholarships for future athletes is what is important to me.
