Q & A:

What position were you recruited to play?

Defensive Line. 

What do you see as your best attribute as a football player?

I feel like my technique and ability to play any position on the D Line are my best attributes. 

Who recruited you and why did you choose UofL?

Coach Klenakis and Coach LD Scott. I chose Louisville because I’ve always grown up supporting the cards, this is my hometown, and I really like all the coaches.

I live with my parents and I have an older sister who attends Western Kentucky University. Also, I like working out and playing video games.

I’m currently undecided on what I’m majoring in, but I’ve been considering architecture or sports management. My long term goals are to graduate from college and win a national championship.
