  • Intangibles:
    • For me, when I play the game slows down I focus on the ball carrier and making him buy. After the hit it speeds back up. I am versatile and can play both sides of the ball and I'm a student of the game. I'm always looking to get better for myself but mainly my team.
  • How I play the game:
    • I play the game with a burning passion to beat the man in front of me, I have a will power and determination to win, I want to be the best individual in my position, and I play smart football.
  • Outlook on High School Football and its experiences
    • Looking back in high school Carrer as I started on the freshman team. Sophomore year Belleville received a new coach and he saw greatness in me and moved me to play varsity football where I was able to learn from the veterans on the team. Junior year I was continued to grow and develop and become starter. Going into my Senior year I want to achieve 9-10 solo tackles, 4-5 sacks a game, 4 deflected passes, 5 force fumbles as a defensive end. As a offensive player playing tight end I want to be utilized on 2nd and long and 3rd and short. At the end of year I want be deep in the playoffs and be the go to guy on both sides of the ball.
  • Discuss the potential opportunity or the opportunity of playing on the next level
    • In my spare time I watch classic college football players. I learn from my bad mistakes and pick up new ideas to better myself. I'm really hungry I want to be a guy that can be very disruptive in the back field. I aspire to be like Cameron Wake, Michael Strahan, Lawrence Taylor, and other great defensive end.
  • Other accolades and/or awards or miscellaneous
    • In 2015, my sophomore year, our varsity team was the league champions.
