Favorite thing about College Park: “I like how everything is so together -- all the football facilities and everything on the campus is nearby. It’s not very far. It’s within walking distance.”
Other high school sports: Basketball, track
Hobbies: “I play saxophone. And I play video games sometimes.”
Intended major: Undecided
Something that not many people know about you: “I guess that my older brother was a better athlete than I was. He was better at my age and he’s still a better athlete now. He had to go to a JUCO [in North Dakota] and he’s playing basketball right now.”
Best football moment: “Last year in the county semifinals against Roosevelt in double overtime. I had 14 tackles that game and a tackle for loss and caused a fumble against their quarterback on the 1-yard line.”
Role model: “My father because he is very laidback. He doesn’t get on me much, but he trusts me to make the right decisions. He stays off my back with sports and grades. I just like the way he’s laidback. At the same time, if I ever need him, he’s there for me. He’s a very loving father towards his family. He does everything he has to do to take care of us.”
Why Maryland? “Basically, they put out a lot of NFL prospects, coming out of [Maryland director of strength and conditioning coach Dwight] Galt’s system. He builds athletes. He builds great football players. That was one of the main reasons I wanted to come. My plan is going to the league, so coming to Maryland helps me in getting there. Also, it’s very close to where my family lives. All my friends can come see the games if they want to. They don’t have to drive very far if they want to catch a game.”
