What was your favorite thing about last season?

The team had an incredible bond. We all had a really great chemistry and worked really well together. Everyone was there for the team and no one was unselfish.

What is your outlook for this season?

To be better than last year. It is my last year, I would like for my class to leave the team on a good note.

What is your favorite thing about ENMU?

The people. Everyone is so outgoing and genuine. I wasn’t even going to come to college, but was offered a scholarship to play football, the rest is history. I just want to make my family proud of me.

What was the best moment about the win over #18 South Baptist University?

We never gave up, and everyone played hard. Bailey Hale [ENMU kicker] is the best kicker in the LSC.

What are your plans after graduation?

I would like to play ball for a little longer, I don’t feel like I am done yet. I’d play wherever, even Canada league.
