Ever since I was a baby I’ve always either had a football in my crib or was playing “crawling football” since I couldn’t walk, stuff like that. It just seems like I’ve always been around the game.Why did you transfer from Boise State to Duquesne to further your football career?When I initially signed, the DC and the DB coach who recruited me there, left right after. It was clear to me that the new DC’s vision for the defense was to have thicker guys at the corner position. In fact, they brought in a 6’0”, 200 lbs. CB in the spring of 2017 and immediately put him in the starting spot. I did eventually earn the starting position, but a big part of me getting my opportunity was because that CB they brought in got suspended. I played well the first 3 games and I was rated the top player overall on that team as per PFF rankings. Then against Virginia, I got a minor injury and had to come out of the game. From then on, I barely played any defensive snaps and it was very apparent what the DC had in mind for the defense. I then had to make a decision to either stay where I was at under the same staff or leave, so I left. I chose Duquesne for two reasons: 1. It provided a National Tier 1 education, and 2. They play in a high passing conference and they promised to play me in the slot which is where I feel like I project at the next level. That being said, I have no hard feelings for anyone at Boise State and I am extremely happy at Duquesne.
