When did you start playing Football? I started playing football around the age of 5 or 6.
What was your greatest moment as a running back? My greatest run so far as a running back was in the 2nd quarter against the TATC (southwest cougars), we were down 8 to 6 and there was a pitch play to the left for me. I caught the pitch, followed my great blockers & set my team up 14-8 with a 55 yard run for a TD.
Which Football player influence you? I was watching tv one day and I watch a documentary about Walter Payton and fell in love with Football ever since. I fell in love with his play style and his tuff ness, how he ran the ball and his speed and power.
When did you first start to show interest in Football? I’ll say I started showing interest in football when I was younger, I was always one of those kids who would play behind the bleachers at a football game trying to show the big kids I could play
What sport did you play at a younger age? At a young age, I played baseball & football.
What made you decide to join the Vikings? I really didn’t know much about Tarboro and their football program coming out of elementary school, but my dad knew that they had a good football program and wanted me to be able to experience what he experienced playing high school football.
What players do you enjoy working with? I enjoy working with all my players, either there teaching me something or I’m teaching my players something. It’s fun just to be able to see your teammates get better and strive. We may fuss on the field or at practice but it’s all love, we just wanna see each other get better.
What have you accomplished so far? So far lol academically I’ve been able to keep a good GPA. I’ve just won my first championship ring, which has always been my dream to do, but I have 2 more to get.


Do you play any other sports? I also run track in High School.
What do you like about Football the most? The thing I love most about Football is being able to look to your other shoulder and knowing you have your brothers who have been working day and night with you knowing they have your back through anything. The work ethic they all put in with me. Being able to connect an unbreakable bond with them & saving the long lasting memories you have with them. Who is your favorite Professional or college football player? I’ll say my favorite pro player is Adrian Peterson, he’s quick, fast, & man powerful.
What songs do you listen to to get you to pump a game day? I listen to two genres of music before a game. I either listen to old school Hip-Hop rap like Tupac & Biggie or I may listen to some Gospel music.
What is your fitness regimen like? I work out every day in school for weight lifting & after school. I have a combination of speed, lateral quickness, and power.
I have way more work to do though.
What motivate you to workout? A lot of things motivates me. One of the biggest is losing my grandad in 2012. It really hurt me and every time I step onto that field I think about him. I also think about my family and my mom & dad. They’ve sacrificed so much for me man, it’s unbelievable. I just work so one day I can better them & the people who’ve stuck there with me through it all.
How do you prepare your game day meal? My coaches and community provides us with meals before every football game, blessed to have that.
What is your favorite healthy meal? LOL, my favorite healthy meal would probably be a salad.
What is your greatest weakness? I believe my greatest may listen to some Gospel music.
