We had a good season. Our non-district play was great. We lost many of our distict games, but they were all very close. I believe we never lost by more than 10 points. We competed well in every game, but just did not finish well in the games we lost.

I started playing around the age of 7. It was in a pee wee league in Donaldsonville.
LAFM: Do you have any family members or friends that have had a big influence on you as you play football?
My uncle. Even before I got to high school, I would go to his house every summer. We would train for a couple weeks to get me ready for football season.
LAFM: If football does not work out for you, what do you see yourself doing? Have you thought of a major in college?
I am going to double major in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine. I want to be an athletic trainer or team doctor. I want to do something that will keep me around the game.
LAFM: Are there any schools that are recruiting you?
I am being recruited by Nicholls, Southern, Henderson State, and St. Olaf College (NAIA). My favorite is probably Nicholls. It is close to home. The D-Line Coach (Brandon Washington) and I have have a good relationship and get along well.
LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for? What is your favorite positions and why?
I am being recruited as a DL. My favorite positions is DT.
LAFM: What was something special about your team this year?
Our defense was a hard nosed defense. We did not allow many points this season. We dictated what we wanted the offense to do and not do all season long.
LAFM: Outside of football, what makes your school or town special?
I guess I like the community. It is a tight nit place which is family oriented.
