I run a 4.6 40-yard dash. I bench 265 and squat 325.

 

LAFM: How did the season go for you and the team?

It could have went better. We had high expectations this year. Still, our team always worked hard in the weight room and on the practice field.

 

LAFM: What has been your best game this season?

Against Lutcher I had a really good game. I think I finished with 5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. I played FS but also had to fill in at LB in some parts of the game due to some of our players being out.

 

LAFM: Who is your favorite football player of all time?

Eric Berry- I think he plays like me. He is a FS with the abillity to come down to the line and make a play.

 

LAFM: How old were you when you started playing and where?

I was about 12 when I started to play park ball.

 

LAFM: Do you have any family members or friends that have had a big influence on you as you play football?

My Mom. She was always making sure that I was never just sitting around doing nothing. She made sure I was always active.

 

LAFM: If football does not work out for you, what do you see yourself doing? Have you thought of a major in college?

I want to major in Sports Medicine, because that can keep me around the game. . If I can not play, I still want to always be around football.

 

LAFM: What are the top 3-5 schools that are recruiting you?

My top 3 are LA Tech, McNeese and Utah. I have no favorites although I may slightly be leaning toward LA Tech.

 

LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for? What is your favorite positions and why?

I am being recruited as a SS. It is the hardest position on the field. We end up having to use the same skills as a WR, but are constantly having to react instead of making the initial move.

 

LAFM: What was something special about your team this year?

Our senior class had a lot of chemistry. Most of us had started since our freshman-sophomore year. We are all good friends and teammates.

 

LAFM: Outside of football, what makes your school or city  special?

The Food. Whether its gumbo or crawfish, we know how to cook here in New Orleans
