Ht: 5-9 Wt: 205

DOB: June 15, 1991 In: Danville, VA

First Football Memory: “My first year I had 36 touchdowns.”

Football Inspirations: “I just started playing because my brothers had football equipment and I didn’t have none. And then I ended up falling in love with the sport. The first time I put the helmet on in my first practice – I told my dad: ‘I want to play in the NFL.’ Which was seven years old. So after that I never really watched NFL or college football until like close to the end of middle school, eighth grade. But once I started, I started looking at a lot of highlights of great running backs, Barry Sanders and Walter Payton.”

Funny Football Memory: “My teammate Tony Gregory, he was like a backup running back. So he came in the game. We were up like a lot of points. He came in the game and we ran the ball and he fumbled on his first carry. And then we got the ball back and he went in again and he fumbled again [laughs]. So that was very funny. I shouldn’t have been laughing but he was talking trash too [smiles].”

Strangest Game: “One time, I guess, the run I had against Clemson. It’s on You Tube. I ran backwards 25 yards and ended up gaining 15 from the scrimmage. So that was crazy.”

Toughest Competitors Encountered: “A lot. There’s a lot of ‘em. I can’t give you one.”
