Why did you choose to play football and when did you start? I started playing football when I was really little, and I enjoyed playing ever since. Also my dad playing was another influence to play.

What life skills has football taught you over time? It has taught me discipline and it has affected my personality.

Would you consider yourself to be a power, elusive, or a receiving back? I would consider myself to be a little bit of all three.

What’s your favorite move to do in game? (Juke, Spin, Hurdle) I like to do to do a juke and a stiff arm, I juke them or stiff arm them to get free when they are close.

As a running back, do you prefer runs inside or outside? Inside, straight down, more direct shot to the endzone.

What’s your favorite play to run? We run a play called 47 wham, I like it because it leaves me one on one with the safety.

What are some things you look at pre-snap? I look at the linebacker, and the side the defense is shifted to and when the ball is snapped, I read my blocks.

What current or past player, do you think your game mirrors the most? I think my game mirrors Reggie Bush’s the most.

What’s something you want to work on this offseason? Getting stronger, faster, and quicker.

Does your jersey number (23) hold any significance to you? Not really, they just gave it to me, but I like it.

Do you play any sports outside of football? If so, how has that helped you on the running back? I run track, it helps my speed and form more specifically my top end speed.

In your opinion, what is the best aspect of your game? My quickness and my ability to make someone miss.

What does it mean to you to play for such a prestigious football program in Katy? It feels good to play at Katy, Coach Joseph really helps prepares us for not only football but life.

How did it feel to win your first state championship? It felt good, I always wanted to do that since I was little, and I got the opportunity to do it.

How do you think Covid-19 impacted your sophomore season? Covid-19 helped my season, I gained an opportunity to play on varsity because someone opted out.

 What are some goals you have for your junior season? I want to have 2,000 rushing yards, get more D1 offers, and to go back to back.

At the end of the day, who is someone you look up to? In my personal life, my dad and my mom and in the NFL, Saquon Barkley and Adrian Peterson.

Describe a time where you were going through adversity, how did you get through it? A lot of people say I’m too small to play running back, but I ignore them and play the best football I can play.

Finally, what are colleges going to get out of you? Colleges are going to get a good speed back that will help you get in the endzone and have a positive impact in the classroom.
