How Long have you been Playing Football?
Its now my third year of football. Before I played football I played basketball.
What are your strengths as a player?
I think I have many strengths as a player. the First thing that comes to mind is my size. It is valuable to have reach like me as a OT. Also I think that my movement is one of my strengths. I move pretty quickly and run pretty fast even though I’am 330lbs. In defense I have the ability to read what the offense going to do.
Have you taken the SAT?
I have not taken the SAT.
Who do you watch the most and try to play like?
I try to watch as many lineman as possible. That way you can try out different techniques and find out what is the best for you. I try to play like my coach wants me to play.
What are your expectations for this season?
I have good expectations for this year. We are fighting for national championship in U20. Also there is the upcoming U19 European championship games. I cant wait to go to Bologna and play for my country.
Why should a team recruit you?
I would say teams should recruit me because I will practice hard for my goals and never give up. I’m also going to London NFL academy to play football and study in 2020. I think the academy will make me a much better player.
