Q: What is the best part about being back on the gridiron with everything going on right now?

A: I think the best part about being able to play football is seeing my teammates work hard and play hard. This team has had a lot of integrity during this pandemic, we’re staying strong and working together through these tough times right now.

Q: What are your personal and team goals for the season?

A: My personal goal for this season is to put more effort into getting more sacks and showing how tough I can be on the field. A team goal that I would like to accomplish this season is to get more win and close out games.

Q: How do you prep for the Friday night lights, what are your pregame rituals?

A: I enjoy listening to playlist as a pregame ritual, the playlist that gets me hyped up is called “ready to work”. I like to keep myself focused and I envision what I’ll do during game time. After my games I like to come out of the locker room and see my family there waiting for me, they love and support me no matter what, I am truly thankful for them.

Q: What is the best part about being back on the gridiron with everything going on right now?

A: Itโ€™s been a long wait, and I feel like the longer I waited, the more and more I wanted to play. So now that weโ€™re back and able to play, Iโ€™m even more hyped up and excited to play. Itโ€™s been a long and hard quarantine, and itโ€™s finally time to get back on the field and play ball.

Q: What are your personal and team goals for the season?

A: My goal is to exceed my own expectations on what I can do, while also having the best time of my life. As a team, my goal is to get us to playoffs, and beyond that, but Iโ€™m taking it one step at a time.

Q: How do you prep for the Friday night lights, what are your pregame rituals?

A: My ritual is to just zone in. I put on some music, sit in the corner and focus. I let my mind go free and let my thoughts and prayers fill my mind. I keep the hard times in the front of my mind because it motivates me. Knowing Iโ€™ve been at the bottom of the barrel gives me momentum. It angers me and it gives me energy and motivation. I tell myself that everything in my life that Iโ€™ve struggled with or failed with, has lead to this moment. Nothing else matters, itโ€™s all about the game. All I gotta do is go out and play.
