Player Info

Although I am one of the nation's most underrated players due to the fact that I am from an underexposed area of the country for athletes. I am not going to let that stop me from reaching my dream. My work ethic and desire counter any geographic barriers that are in my way. I participate in the nation's most competitive all-star games and events each year including the NUC All-American Game, Sportz Farm All-American game, and the Diamond Sports All-American game. I have competed in FBU's Top Gun 3 times. With all of the time I put into training in the offseason I have seen my arm strength improve tremendously. I have become a stronger runner making me a dual threat with my legs as well. I work with one of the top quarterback coaches (Kelly Meeker) in the country and we really focus on my arm mechanics and footwork. My accuracy continues to improve as does my completion percentage. I still feel like the mental part of my game can always improve, but I stay very poised during crucial times of games. My team finished 7-0 with personal highs in all categories. My strengths on the field include his leadership, work ethic, field vision, mobility, and accuracy. My teammates will say I am leader on and off the field. This is something I do with my actions.
