How do you feel about your season so far? 

This season is really uplifting for the years to come. We had a very upsetting lost to ST. Thomas More, but over came it. We are now just seeking a state title. 

Where there any specific goals you were trying to reach? If so, how is that going?

My specific goal is to be All-State, and All-Acadiana. As well to be 1 of 3 players to have caught a TD, rushed for 1, threw 1, and caught a pick 6.

When did you start playing football and how did you get into the sport?

I started playing football around the age of four. I got into it by seeing my uncle playing at a higher level. He played for the New England patriots.

What’s your favorite thing about your position?

My favorite thing about my position is that it teaches you to believe in yourself and become more of a leader.

How do you think your coaches and teammates would describe you?

My team thinks of me as a warrior, or a bad man in general because not many people can do what I do.

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

I don’t have weaknesses to be honest with you, so I’m a very well rounded football player.

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

Louisiana football is very competitive and physical. Playing football in Massachusetts wasn’t the same, it was much easier. 

What would you be bringing to a college team and what are you looking for out of one?

I’ll be bringing everything to a football team of their need. I can run, throw, receive, and defend the football. I’m looking for a college that’ll believe in me how I believe in myself!

Three worlds to describe yourself

Elusive, warrior, and a king

What is one thing you can’t go a day without?

I can’t go a day without football
