Best game of career: My first game being moved up to varsity freshman year against Jones H.S. . I would say Jones H.S because they have one of the best high school football programs and coaching staffs in the State of Florida, regardless of classification and they’re nationally ranked. On top of that they had nothing but Division 1 players on defense and I did my thing. My coach, who was Coach Hedrick, asked me to help out because we had running backs injured. So I strapped up and toted that rock and was the leading rusher for my team that game.
Coaches that have influenced you: I would say Coach Tate, Coach Booker, Coach Rich & Coach Rhodes from S.O.P. influenced me when I first started playing football. Also Coach Bruce from the Ocoee Bulldogs, especially Coach David Rivette from Inbound Warriors who really treated me like I mattered. Coach Caleb Day from the Osceola Panthers was awesome too! But Coach James Lynch has meant a lot to me. He’s the coach that got me into playing QB, since I was in the sixth grade. He even put me into a varsity game in sixth grade. Coach James Lynch gives me the football knowledge I need to be successful on the field. Everything that he knows from having played in the NFL and Division 1 football he shares with all of us, that’s part of the reason my football IQ is on point. Coach Yarborough and Coach Hedrick from BMCHS because they gave me a chance to earn a shot to prove my self on the varsity level. Lastly I left the best for last and that’s Coach Chris Jackson who is my AAU Basketball Coach and Trainer. Coach Chris is like family! He has helped me become a better athlete in both sports but more important as a young man in the world.
