Of course, getting a good education will be very important for my future. I would like to attend a school that I fit-in with coaching staff and the program and have the ability to play and make a difference in the future.What parts of your game do you feel are your strengths? What could you use the most work on?
I feel that my understanding and love of the game and my ability to be coached are very important. My size, strength and arm length help me tremendously when blocking. I could use the most work on; my foot speed; I will be doing Parsis Speed School very hard this summer at Defined Fitness. This will help my speed and balance and allow me to improve my game better.Do you have a top list of schools?

.Who is the best player you faced last year?
Salpointe, Arizona Defensive Line, they all were big, strong, and fast, a very good football team.How would your coach describe you?
I would hope that Coach Howes would say I was a very hard-worker and was dedicated to the Rio Rancho Program. I would like to think that he considers me as a Team leader and a player that will do whatever it takes to get the job done. I love the game and will push myself to be the best I can be,
hopefully one day I will be able to represent the State of New Mexico in a Division 1 football program.
