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

Next season is looking great for Slidell High School.  Next year we will have new Head Coach, Larry Favre, and we will be installing a new offense and defense that fits our personnel better.


LAFM: What was your best play last season?

I had one 40-yard reception last season off of a 20-yard corner route.  I believe this was my best since I had broken away from the safety and had almost 10 yards after first contact with opposing players.


LAFM: Current height and weight?

6’3; 235 pounds


LAFM: 40-yard dash time?

4.95


LAFM: Who is your football idol and why?

My football idol is Jason Witten because he is just an overall great TE due to his great blocking and receiving skills.

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

I started playing at 11.


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

I would like to major in Biomedical Engineering.


LAFM: What is your favorite position, why?

I love playing TE because I love blocking and I love having the ball to make plays for my team.


LAFM: Current ACT score?

22
