I would say my mom. She has always told me to pursue my dreams and be all I can be in football and in life.

I throw the Shot Put and the Discuss. If football does not work out, I would like to do track.
LAFM: Are you looking for a place you can go play track and football? Are there any schools that are recruiting you? Do you have any schools in mind?
Yes, I would like to do both sports. Our coaches handle much of the recruiting for us. I would have to say no one is recruiting me heavily as of now. I like the athletic program at ULL. They have a good track team as well as football team. They are a school I would be interested in going to.
LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for? What is your favorite positions and why?
I enjoy playing DL, but I would also like to be a LB. I would like to try something new and different.

I felt that I did a good job of setting an example for our younger and upcoming players here at Acadiana. I was good at setting a high level of play, intensity, and work ethic for our team. Any team that I am a part of will get the same thing.
LAFM: Looking back at this past year, what made this years Acadiana team special?
The Leadership our team had throughout the year was special. All of our seniors and leaders on our team did a great job keeping the team together all year long. We had the same goal and mindset from the very beginning.
