How often do you play?

In the summer I played football everyday with morning workouts and practice. During the season, Monday through Friday we had practices and games. On Saturdays I’d go and throw with my wide receivers.

What are you best at?

Making plays when the original play breaks down. Just improvising.

What could you improve on?

I could probably improve on accuracy with passing.

 What is the best part about football?

The best part about football is hitting. I love hitting people. As mean as that sounds.
