Q: What is something that you can't live without?
A: My family.
Q: If you had to be stranded on a deserted island for one month, which one of your teammates would you want to bring with you and why?
A: I'd bring Dylan Kegans. He and I get along very well. We have each other's back, so I know we'll survive.
Q: What is your best talent outside of football?
A: Just working hard in everything I do.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A: Hopefully, I have my own practice and I'm a PA or god willing I'm still playing football.
Q: Is being a student-athlete all you imagined it to be and what are some of the challenges you have faced in the process?
A: It definitely has had its ups and downs, but it's been a blessing. Football has been a way for me to pay for my school while playing the game I love for four years. You have to be disciplined and have the right mindset and mentality.
Q: Do you ever wish that you could just be a regular college student?
A: Not at all. It's tough being a football player, while working and going to class, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
