When and Why did you start playing football? What do you love about football?

I started playing football back in the 7th grade at Paul Breaux. And I wanted to because of the competitiveness of game and how it runs in my family. My brother played football so I wanted to follow his footsteps.


You seem pretty quick do you run track or play any other sports?

No, I only play football in high school. I used to play soccer.



What Colleges would you like to play for?

Not limited to a certain school but I would prefer a school that has good academics.


How do you feel your junior season went?

My junior season went pretty well for the most part even though I was out for the first half of the season because of a hamstring injury. I came back for the 5th game of the season and still made first team all-district.


What is one thing you want to improve on during the offseason?

I would say, could only get better and continue to be a leader and help my team get better.


What are some goals you have heading into your senior year?

A big goal of mine is to make the playoffs with my team and have more forced turnovers than last season.


What helps you stay successful at football?

My mindset I work very hard and take pride in it. I never keep my head down, if I make a mistake I brush it off and play the next play.
