My best game was against Loreauville. I had 6 receptions for 190 yards and 2 TDs.

 

 

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

Tim Tebow- He is really trying to make a statement that hard works pays off and not just talent.

 

 

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

I was 8 or 9 when I started to play pee wee football.

 

 

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

My dad has always been their for me, and been a big influence on my football career. My 2 coaches have helped me throughout my high school career as well. Coach Desormeaux from last year and Coach Indest this year.

 

 

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

I think I am going to study business. It is just something I think I would like to do.

 

 

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

I am committed to ULL. I had offers from Houston and UL Monroe. I chose ULL because they have a specific role for me, and I would have a good shot playing my first year. It is also close to home.

 

 

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

The team was good at bouncing back. We started 2-3, but finished 9-4. We were always able to stay focus and not get down on ourselves.
