Full Bio

 Are you excited to play in the new Martin Stadium?
The new press box looks amazing. It was really cool being here all summer to watch the making of it with each pillar that went up. It will definitely help make this stadium one of the loudest in the country.

 Why come to WSU?
When I came on my visit, the best thing that stood out to me about WSU and Pullman was the community and how they embraced me.

 Tell us about Coach Leach and his staff.
Coach Leach is a great coach. He's about honor and integrity and it's a blessing to be coached by him.

 What are the guys saying about this season?
We are very excited to be playing on the field together. It's an honor and a privilege to play for my teammates.

 What's something WSU fans don't know about you?
Most fans don't know that I play golf pretty consistently. I played all four years in high school and try to play as much as I can during the offseason.

 What's your favorite place to eat in Pullman?
Cougar Country.

 What's your routine to get pumped up for a game?
My way to get pumped up for a game is through prayer and meditation.

 Who's your favorite football player/athlete/idol/role model?
My favorite player was Ronnie Lott but I do like to watch Eric Berry, Troy Polamalu, Adrian Wilson and Ed Reed.

 What would you be doing if you weren't playing football?
I'm not exactly sure. Football has always been a part of me since I was seven so I don't know.

 Which WSU uniforms are your favorite?
All grays!
