Q: Tell us about your college career and what the recruiting process was like. Why did you choose Webber International?

A: The recruiting process for me was pretty straight forward, coming out of high school I had 5 NAIA schools interested in me playing and I chose Webber International just because it was close to home.

A: My biggest accomplishment so far would be playing all of my college games without any major injuries in 4 straight years.

Q: What do you consider to be one of the more important things you learned from the coaching staff while playing at Webber International?

A: The most important thing I learned so far is no matter how good you think you are, “what you put on film is who you are”

Q: What has been your biggest challenge and how do you manage it? 

A: My biggest challenge has been maintaining a good GPA, football, and being a dad 24/7.

Q: What would be your ultimate achievement?

A: My ultimate achievement would be just to get to that next level, like I said before I don’t care if it’s practice squad I just want to know that I can make it and successful. I been counted out my entire life.
