LAFM:  How is next season looking for you and your team?

Next season is looking really good.  I know next year we will “Turn Up”.  We have a lot of juniors and seniors returning.  I plan to have the best season as a DE in the pelican state.  I slacked off last year, but not it is my senior year.  It is now or never.

LAFM: What was your best season?

My sophomore year was my best year.  I had to fight for my position, and I played that position all yer long.  My junior year I had to move around a lot which was due to the fact thatwe are a smaller school.

LAFM: Current height and weight?

6’2; 218 pounds.

LAFM: 40-yard dash time?


LAFM: Who is your football idol and why?

My football idol would have to be Julius Peppers.  He perfected the position that I wish to master.

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

I started playing when I was 9-years-old for a Flag Football Farmerville Recreational League.

LAFM: If football doesn’t work out, what do you see yourself doing? Have you thought of a major?

I plan on going into Journalism or Physical Education.  I either want to write about football or coach it if I can’t play it.

LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for? Which is your favorite position, why?

DE is my favorite position and really my only position.  It is my favorite because it is almost an advantage.  A lot of times it is an athletic person vs. a lazy person if you play it right.

LAFM:  What schools are recruiting you, and do you have any favorites yet?

I’d love to play for LSU, Louisiana Tech, or ULM.  LSU is my favorite.

LAFM: Current ACT score?
