When did you start playing football?

I started playing flag football around the age of four. Growing up I was always watching my brother and father play and after playing I just fell in love with the game.

Did you play any other sports growing up?

I played baseball and basketball, but I was most drawn to football.

Have you always played the position you play now?

I have always moved around to where the coaches needed me. This past year I played freshman quarterback and then I went back to play wide receiver.

Who would you say are some of your biggest influencers?

The guys I go to school with such as Rickie Collins and Jordan Matthews. Just playing with them makes me want to challenge myself even more and just know I can do the same.

Who is your favorite NFL player? Is there anyone specific you try and model your game after?

Justin Jefferson. His route running and how he always just has fun on the field is why he’s my favorite.

What has been the highlight/biggest accomplishment of your football career so far?

Playing varsity as a freshman. Having the opportunity was a great way for me to push myself and really learn.

What motivates you to get out and practice every day?

The competition. There is someone out there who is working just as hard or even harder, so constantly grinding during practices and games.

What do you feel your biggest strengths are?

My confidence. A lot of people underestimate me because of my size, so being able to prove them wrong and make big plays because I am confident in how I play.

What has football taught you about life and about yourself in general?

Never give up. No matter if you are in a game-losing or in life struggling, never give up because there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
