  • Intangibles:
    • Can't be blocked 1 0n 1. I love the game of football. In my roots from FL & Alabama where my father & family grew up. I believe I can be a real asset to any team. Reason I believe I'm unblockable 1 on 1 is usually 
    • LT & TE need to double team me & they chip me with a back & I still make plays. Each off season I have worked to become a better player. Learned that it can mean more to command a double team & that allows my teammates to make plays. That is just as important as me making the play myself. I will still have my opportunities too. My stats are not as important as the team winning.
  • How I play the game:
    • Pumped up, motivated, with tenacity, but smart, with good technique, Very coachable & I love to hit. Love watching film. Its like a chess match. figure what the other team wants to do. I still believe that you still haft to go on the field & execute coaches game plan. Some time you haft to blow a plan up & come up with a new plan right in the middle of the game. Some times strategies works the way drawn up.
  • Outlook on High School Football and its experiences
    • My high school experience could be made better by winning. You can only control so much as a small group of people. We have a New A.D. After one had been there since school opened. We got a New coaching staff after a good staff left. This is the new staffs 2cnd year. It takes time to get things established. But players don't have as much time as coaches have sometimes. This pass season we had seniors that have not had a winning season in high school period. We did not have the #s most of our competition in the OAA red has. Like Clarkston Southfield A&T West Bloomfield, Lake Orion & Oxford to name a few. This coming season is my senior year. I just want to win, make the playoffs & win in the playoffs. I'm looking forward to my development as a player with all coaches I come in contact with. I'm looking forward to the season so I can see how my developmental work pays off from this off season.
  • Discuss the potential opportunity or the opportunity of playing on the next level
    • I would like to play football at the next level. Myself, parents & different coaches along the way, have invested a lot of time over the last 12 yrs for my love of football. It would be a great accomplishment to show its been time well spent to be able to earn a scholarship. It would be one of my greatest accomplishments. Next goal would be getting on the field & staying there once I'm on it.
