I first came in touch with Nicholls around mid season. Coach Steve Adams got in touch with me. I will play CB on defense. They want me to play a little special teams as well, like in the Gunner position on punts. I will probably get a chance to block a few more field goals as well.
LAFM: Why did you choose the Colonels?
When I went to visit, It felt like home to me. It was a great atmosphere. Everyone talked about how Nicholls was a great community and a safe community. They are great on books, and just a great schools for a person like me to go to.
LAFM: Who are some people that stand out as major factors helping you along the way of your recruiting process?
I would say my family. My mom, grandfather, grandmother, and my auntie. They were very supportive and talked me through it. They helped break it down for me on what schools I could go to.
LAFM: What do you bring to the Nicholls State Program as a player?
I bring a lot of hard work. I am very excited and passionate about the game. I want to go into every game and do my best, and I want my teammates to do their best. Hopefully, we can go win a conference championship and get this Nicholls Football Program back on track.
LAFM: What is one thing you think that you need to improve upon or adjust to going to the next level?
LAFM: How has East Ascension prepared you for football at the next level?
It all started with my sophomore year. I had a coach named Johnny Walker who is at Dutchtown now. He helped me out tremendously. As a sophomore, I also learned from the older players and watching how hard they worked. I learned by watching them and their technique. I first started my sophomore year when a player got hurt and I was put in. I took over the rest of the season and really have kept on learning ever since.
