How long have you been playing football?  I’ve been playing football since my sophomore year in high school.

Do you play any other sports? I played baseball before I switched to football.

Why do you choose to play WR? I was just always athletic, and I wasn’t necessarily the biggest. I played WR and DB on JV and I liked receiver better, so I stuck with it.

What is the most important part of playing WR? Route running and speed. If you can’t get open, you can’t get the ball.

Can you play any other positions? Corner and free safety.

What position do you see yourself playing at the next level? WR.

Is there a player you can compare yourself to? I’d say Keenan Allen.

What’s your go to move? Diamond release on slants.

What goes through your mind pre snap? If it’s a block I’m thinking which way the run is going and who I have to block, if it’s a pass I look how the corner is lined up and think about how I am going to run my route.

Do you look up to anyone? I look up to Carlos Inglesias, a receiver from last year. He played really well and that’s how I want my season to go.

What are you doing to get better? I’m working on strength, speed, and throwing with my QB to improve our chemistry and my route running.

Do you have any goals for this season? ? My goals are to break all the season records Belen has.

What kind of receiver are you (speedy route technician jump ball)? Route technician.

What stands out about the way you play? My route running and the way I’m able to track the ball.

Why should colleges give you a chance? Because I know I’d be a huge play maker in the next level, and I can be really useful for some teams. I can play outside, slot, whatever you want.

What is your favorite part about playing WR? Scoring touchdowns, it helps the team and feels good.

What sets you apart from others? I’m the most hard working receiver you will get. I was given my number because I’m the hardest worker on the team.
