What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2024 NFL Draft?

My work ethic and love for the game has always led me to believe that I will make it to the next level. I believe that I have a unique feel for the game. My IQ is something that separates me from my peers and allows me to play at a high level. My anticipation, athleticism, and understanding of angles allow me to excel at my position. 


At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

At the age of 4 years old I was introduced to the game and fell in love with it.

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

That I have a relentless burning passion for this game.

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be?

I would donate to eliminating world hunger. After visiting Cuba recently, it offered me an entirely different perspective and it allowed me to realize how much I take for granted.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Comparison is the thief of joy. Run your race, put in your work and live with the results. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My mom. She did a lot of the heavy lifting and raised me and my sister and she never complained no matter how stressful things got financially.

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?

I would say my teammate Tajon Vassar is an underrated teammate because he is not a very vocal guy but he speaks when he needs to and he leads by example every single day which is sometimes more effective. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Bad manners/people being rude. 

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

Challenges at home, whether it be financially or personal things. That’s the real pressure, that’s the real struggle. Football is easy compared to the game of Life. 

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

Bentley University is one of the top academic institutions in all of Division 2, specializing in Business. It’s so special to me because this school gave me the opportunity to showcase my talents on the field and in the classroom as well as meet my best friends that I will cherish forever. 

What is your favorite snack food?

My favorite snack food is Cheez-Its. 

What is the best part of football?

The best part about football is that any external difference doesn’t matter. In a country that is constantly being divided, football is a place where people from all different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities come together as a family of brothers and go to war together.

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?

I am a guy who will never take no for an answer and am willing to outwork anyone and make the necessary sacrifices to do so. 

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be?

I would say Tyran Mathieu because of his raw instincts and ability to tackle despite his lack of size. 

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why? 

I would have dinner with Conor McGregor, Julian Edelman, and Jimmy Butler. Very different people on all levels but I look up to all of them and they all share one commonality: they came from nothing and earned everything they have.
