  • Intangibles:
    • I believe that my leadership and willingness to sacrifice separates me from everyone else. My affinity to lead has allowed me to be able to rally teammates as well as get them to buy into my program's beliefs--which is what I would like to do for a college program hopefully one day. And it is my ability to sacrifice, whether it be in the weight room or even on the field that allows me to grow and better myself physically and mentally to adapt and adhere to what a program wants from me. 
  • How I play the game:
    • I play with aggressiveness and speed--flying around to the ball and delivering a hit one I get there. But it is my ability to play smart that allows the later two skills to be exponentially greater. My proclivity and knowledge for the game allows me to make plays beyond what is expected. With this, my unselfish and coachable nature is what allows teams I play for to become as successful as possible as I always look to do anything and everything for the overall betterment of the game and my team.
  • Outlook on High School Football and it's experiences
    • High school football has given me some of the best years of my life. It has given me things far greater than hardware won on the field and thought me lessons that I could not get from within the walls of a classroom. I am excited to see what the future holds and eager to help contribute to a program and be apart of something greater than myself once again at the next level.
  • Discuss the potential opportunity or the opportunity of playing on the next level
    • Playing football at the next level is extremely intriguing to me because of the opportunity it gives me--the chance to be apart of something greater than myself. With that being said, college football extends another chance for me to win--something I love and yearn to do. It is with these things that I look forward to college football so that I can help better as well as build a program while embodying the values and principles that the program is all about.
