How do you feel you played individually last season?
I felt it was one of my best years in football. I had my season goals and exceeded them with help of my team.
How is the off season going for you and what are the goals for this upcoming season?
My off season has been very big for me. I have gotten faster and stronger and have gotten several lifting PRs for myself. Some of my goals this year is to be the district MVP and rush for 2,000 yards, but my team goals are more valuable.
Do you feel you got better and how do you feel the team will play this season?
Yes, I feel much more developed physically and mentally about the game and I’m very confident in our team this year. Our off season as a team has exceeded all of our expectations.
What is the number one thing you are working on to improve your game?
For me as a running back I feel I need to add more finesse to my running game. I have shown coaches that I can run through someone and get the tough yards.
A teammate you see putting in the work that you think will have an impact this season.
