Has your size changed at all?
No, I'm pretty much the same.
What does your workout routine entail?
I workout with weights Monday, Wednesday, Friday and then we run on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
How different are your workouts now with WKU?
It's pretty much just having it be the whole week. I've never worked out five days a week before. The way we do a lot of different stuff to workout our whole bodies, it's pretty intense. Now I'm used to it, but it's a good workout and I get some good time in there.
What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
I definitely need to get used to the new system and the new plays. I'm probably gonna have to start working on my deep throws and making the 20-yard comeback throws, making my reads and that kind of stuff.
How would you describe your playing style?
I'm very physical. I'm not gonna shy away from any kind of contact, no matter if it's a D-end or a DB. I like to show that we can be physical on offense also. I'm definitely not one to just take a hit. I'll deliver the blow.
What are some of your goals as a for your first season as a Topper?
I'm just trying to put my team in a position to win every single game that we participate in. Hopefully, we'll win the Sun Belt Conference and make it to a bowl game. That would be the ultimate list. Starting off, I juts wanna put my team in a position to win every single game.
What's your favorite food?
Definitely Spaghetti.
What is your favorite movie?
Remember The Titans.
What is your favorite movie?
I've gotta say Bone Thugs N' Harmony.
What would be three words to describe you?
Humble, loving and fun.
What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
Last season, us being fourth in the nation and winning the Northern Conference championship and playing for a national title was definitely the most memorable football experience I have.
