My best game was against Teurlings. I had 4 catches for 181 yards and 1 TD. I also ran for 1 TD.

 

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

I am going to have to say Terrell Owens. Although he could be crazy, he was dominant on the field and a great football player.

 

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

I was about 8 or 9 when I started playing flag football at a recreational league in Lafayette.

 

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

Definitely my grandfather. He has always been a father figure in my life. He passed away 3 years ago. He was always at my games and always their for me. Now when I play, I play for my grandpa.

 

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 become a lawyer. I have always been interested in the law and have family members who are lawyers.

 

LAFM: Are there any schools that are recruiting you? Do you have any favorites?

I have an offer from Nevada, Northwestern State, and McNeese. Vanderbilt came to the school last weekend, and ULL is recruiting me along with Tulsa I believe.

 

LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for?

It depends on the school, but they want me to play WR or CB.

 

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

We were a really close group this year. Our team was a family. No one was selfish and we played for each other every down.

 

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

STM is a great place because everyone is always helpful. Everyone wants you to succeed not just in school, but also in life. They help you become a grown up.
