Answer: I just love playing football. It’s so fun to me. Just to go out there with my brothers and play. It’s the greatest thing in the world. I’d say one of my strengths is throwing on the run. Sort of like a dual-threat, I can throw and run.Question: Whom do you model yourself after?

Answer: Tim Tebow is my idol. He’s always been a role model to me and a lot of people are like, “What? Tim Tebow? He hasn’t even played football anymore.” But, just the person he is off the field. What he does for so many children in this world, and the leader he is. Everything off the field is great. A great person. On the field, he is a leader. He motivates his team.He gets them fired up and ready to go each and every game. He never quits. He had the largest heart. He fought and fought and fought for his teammates. It’s really, a huge role model to me and inspired me to be like him, to lead on and off the field. That’s really rare for a large figure like him to do that.
