How long have you been playing football?
I started football with my brother because at the time we were watching an anime of football and we saw that there is a team close to where we live so we went to a practice and we loved it. I’ve been playing football since August 2014 in Villepinte where I have played for 3 season and then in 2017 a coach from Thetford Q.C in Canada offered for me to play with them so I took a chance and I have played two seasons in Canada. My first season was hard because I was playing well but I got injured so I only got to play two games. The next season I had a great season. I went to Canada because I knew that it was a higher level of Football than the France u19 level and I knew that the infrastructure was much better that what we have in France.
What are your strengths as a player?
My strength as a player is my Football IQ which has allowed me to react quickly and make big plays, I am also tall and I have good hands so I can pick the ball up and I am savage on special teams.
Have you taken the SAT?
I am actually working on my SAT I am going to pass it soon.
Who do you watch the most and try to play like?
The player I admire and I am trying to copy is Earl Thomas. He is quick and he has a good Football IQ, he is always excited about playing.
What are your expectations for this year?
My expectations for this year is to win a championship with my team and also be on of the best players in the league.
Why should a team recruit you?
I am already working for the next season, I am bigger, faster, quicker and I am working on my technique a lot so I will be ready at 100% to play in university my first year.
