  • Intangibles:
    • I work hard in everything I do, including the classroom (I have a GPA of 3.6), the weight room, and on the football field.  I am very coachable, very team-oriented, I lead through my example on and off the field, and push my brothers towards excellence.
  • How I play the game:
    • When I play football, its all about the team.   As a RB/FB, I am a downhill power runner with excellent vision and cutting ability and decent speed. I also love blocking for my teammates and catching passes.  As a OLB, I I read the play quickly, shed blocks swiftly, and go after the ball aggressively.
  • Outlook on High School Football and it's experiences
    • Last year NPC was down due to alot of injuries.  This year with 16 starters coming back, our goal is to get back to winning the OK Silver like we did in 2013 and 2015, not only get to the state semi-finals like we did in 2014 and 2015, but also go all the way to Ford Field and win a division 7 championship.
  • Discuss the potential opportunity or the opportunity of playing on the next level
    • I am interested in playing football at the collegiate level because I know I can be a playmaker in whatever position they want me to play (either FB or OLB) as well as off the field as a leader in the classroom and in the community, where ever I decide to go to college.
