What are goals that you set for yourself?
You definitely do have to work harder to prove yourself. I try to set weekly goals for myself, get better at something that maybe I wasn’t as good at last week. Last year, I played a little bit, so that was a good experience.
Who are some players you’ve learned from and looked up to since being here?
(Aaron Colvin) has definitely been a leader I looked up to over the years. Gabe Lynn. Kass Everett. Dudes like Tony Jefferson. Big-time players that have come through this program and been successful. They’ve definitely been leaders. They treated me like a brother.
The NCAA loosened up restrictions on meals and snacks recently, and walk-ons are also allowed unlimited food. How much does that help?
It helps a ton. Going from practice to practice, you lose a lot, so being able to get that nutrition throughout the day really helps a lot. Being able to leave here with food when you go home after a hard, heavy practice really makes a difference.
