LAFM: How did this season go for you and your team?

I had a decent season. I know there was still more I could have done in the off-season to be better prepared. The season did go as well as we hoped for the team either. We had a lot of under classmen playing, who weren’t mentally prepared for varsity. Hopefully they will have a stronger will to win next season.


LAFM: What was your best game this season, and why?


I believe that my best game was against Northwood. That game boosted my confidence as an offensive lineman. That made me realize that if my team needs me as an offensive linemen, then I need to step up to the plate, be a leader, and do what’s best for the team.


LAFM: Current height and weight?


My current height is 6 feet 3 inches and my weight is 200 pounds.


LAFM: 40-yard dash time?

When I was last timed in the 40, before the season started, I ran a 4.5.


LAFM: Who is your football idol and why?


I don’t really have a football idol. I try to watch and learn from different players.


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


I first started playing football when I was about 15 years old. It was my freshmen year at Southwood High School.


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


I actually am going to try to get into modeling. The major I think I want to go into is zoology.


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


The positions I am being recruited for are defensive end and offensive tackle. Honestly, its hard to pick my favorite between the two. I loved being able to stop my man from touching my QB and being able to drive him to the ground on offense, but I loved getting the chance to get a highlight sack or tackle on defense.


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


I have received letters from ULL, Louisiana Tech, Columbia, Brown, Harvard, Yale, and others. I think my favorite is ULL.


LAFM: Current GPA and ACT score?


My current GPA is 2.8 and my ACT score is 16.
