How would you describe your season so far? Also, how do you feel about the upcoming playoff match this week against Episcopal?

This season has been one to enjoy and I’m really glad and thankful that I came out to play this year. As for our upcoming match, I don’t have any comments about it. My actions speak louder than my words. 

Did you have any specific goals for this season? If so, how is that coming along?

To be honest I didn’t. I just wanted to help my teammates out in any way shape or form. It has been coming along great. I’ve been able to contribute and help the team out in the ways the coaches ask me too. 

How did you even get into football? Is there anything specific that motivated you to keep playing?

Our team lost a lot of receivers last year so I came out to play in my senior year to try to help give the team another option. I would also like to take time and thank Anthony Richard Jr., Darian Riggs, Brylan Green, Jordan Allen, Sage Ryan, Ryan Roberts, Joshua Membreno, Kamari Cage, and many others for taking time out their schedules to help prepare me for the season.

What has football taught you about yourself or life?

Football has taught me that I am stronger than I really am and I’ve learned that when life knocks you down you need to get off your butt to fight another day. 

What’s your favorite thing about your position?

One thing that I like about playing receiver is blocking. Most wide receivers don’t like to do that but I Iove blocking and help opening gaps for my teammates. 

What would you say are your main strengths on the field?

My main strengths are my speed and quickness. Like the saying says, “speed kills”. 

How would your coaches and teammates describe you?

I would say my coaches would describe me as a humble, passionate, determined young man. 

What’s your favorite thing about playing football in Louisiana?

I love the competition down here. Everywhere you go and turn each team has at least a few dogs on their team. I also love facing the big time talent down here because you train and go against the best everyday. 

Three words to describe yourself?

Blessed by God.

What hobbies do you have outside of sports?

I like writing poetry and listening to different styles of music. 

Are there any college or NFL athletes that you look up to or try to model your play style after?

They are two players that I look up too in NFL JJETAS aka Justin Jefferson and Tyreek Hill. I try to mix the two of them in my play. 

What is one thing could you not go a day without?

One thing I can’t go without doing in a day is thanking God for the many blessings and opportunities he’s giving to me.
