Get to Know the Player
How would you describe yourself as a player on the field? Physically, mentally, etc.
I would describe myself as a player as aggressive and smart. I run hard every time I touch the ball, and mentally, I tend to not over think and let things flow naturally.
And which player do you model your game after or who would best describe you?
I model my game after Jerry Rice because I may not have the fastest 40 time but I run as hard as possible and I go 110% at all times.
How has your recruitment gone overall in your eyes?
My recruitment is not going great in my eyes and would like to see it pick up.
What offers do you currently hold from schools?
No schools are showing interest right now because my name isn't out there yet.
Have you planned any visits in the future?
Yes I have some this summer.
Could you describe some of the schools you have been to and your thoughts on them?
I've been to Clemson, South Carolina, and East Carolina. I loved all three campuses and it would be an honor to play at any of those programs.
Football wise, what are you looking for in a school?
Football wise, I am looking for a school who can challenge me both mentally and physically.
What have you been working on during the off season?
During the offseason, I've been lifting almost every day and going to the field to do work. my max has gone up from 195 pounds to 245 pounds this off season alone.
What are your strengths & weakness on the field?
My strengths on the field is that I always play hard and I would say I am very aggressive.
My weakness is that I tend to think every aspect threw, so sometimes I can act like a robot rather than an athlete.
What do you think you could provide on the field to a collage team looking at you?
I think I could provide to a school that is looking at me is my dedication and a person that can and will go 100% at all times on the field.
Any goals you would like to achieve before you graduate high school?
I will like to achieve a 3.7 GPA and become an all-state wide receiver before I leave high school.
How did this past season go in your own opinion for both yourself and for your team?
This past season was rough at Phillip O Berry, only winning 3 games. For myself this season, I did well but there's always room for improvement.
