Most Notable Collegiate Accolades:
Voted Team Captain

Favorite Movie:
The “IP Man” Series because I love martial arts movies. The fight scenes are really cool because they are really realistic so I can almost picture myself in the movie doing all the moves.

Favorite Food(s):
Chick-Fil-A definitely. I get almost 10 calendars every year just for the coupons because they “never” expire.

If you could be one animal what would you be? Why?
A Black Panther because they are in the lime light under the lions but they are smooth and you have to respect them. I also feel like they embody me in some ways because I’ve always been in the lime light, but you definitely know I’m there.

If you could have one Super Hero Power what would it be? Why?
The Avatar because being able to control all four elements, water, earth, fire and air. I could do anything and it would probably make football easier. I could blow out people with some airbending and score on every play, that would be the life.

Who is the most influential person in your life?
My Mom, Dad and little sister because they are my biggest supporters as well as critics. They aren’t afraid to hurt my feelings and tell me I’m wrong or that I messed up. It keeps me level.

If you had three wishes what would they be?
1.To make it to the NFL 2. To have a personal chef so I can eat what I want when I want to and not have to worry about making it. (I am a fat kid at heart) 3. To either have super powers or to be a highly trained spy. Sometimes I pretend I am just to relax my mind and wind down for fun. You would think I am still 5 years old if you saw me.

What drives you to be the best?
The desire to always want to prove people wrong, the fear of failure, and the hatred of losing or being second best in anything. I have never been considered “the best” in a lot of things but when it’s all said and done I have always been in the conversation regardless of circumstances. I am an “undersized” running back and I am from statistically and historically the worst Division II school in the nation, but if you watch me play you will know that I belong and have what it takes to play in the NFL. Also there are those who don’t know me and don’t believe that I have a shot and that infuriates and drives me. I have always been the “underdog” coming in but have always left on top with the best of them and I will do it again.

My dad.

If you had three wishes what would they be?
1. Have stability in life 2. Have good health for as long as I live 3. To be very, very comfortable financially.

What drives you to be the best?
The competitor in me. I want to be able to do what the greats do to be mentioned in the same category as them and that’s why I work. I believe if you don’t do what you need to to be the best then why do it.

If you could be one animal what would you be? Why?
A wolf because they have the ability to work as a predator in conjunction with a family/pack to achieve more than is possible if they were individual. It makes it a unique opportunity to be an apex predator that is part of a team.

The ability to read/digest books within 5 minutes. This would give me the ability to become an expert in subject matter exceedingly fast. I would understand the game better than anyone on the field.

My brother because he worked tirelessly to set an example for me through his continued academic success. I was also blessed with a strong role model in my father.
