Eric Riley how was your 2019 season? My 2019 season was a bit of a roller coaster. There were many ups and downs this year. This season showed me how much unity with your team matters and why you have to grind to be successful.
What does football mean to you? What football means to me is a way of life because a few years ago we’re talking about a game others told me to quit and stop working at but I overcame the adversity and made this a way of life for me.
What should college coaches know about you? What college coaches should know about me is that I’m great on and off the field. I’m a leader, my work ethic is excellent and my passion for the game is unmatched. Also I feel as if I would be a good contributor to any program because of my character.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I feel my strongest trait on the football field is my ability to outthink my opponent, because I feel I’m always one step ahead.
What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? A part of my game I’ve been working on is my strength, because when a lot of people look at my appearance they think basketball player because I have a different physique from most players. Nonetheless I’m working daily on every attribute of my game to become a better overall player.
