I was born in Dallas Texas and was 1 of 10 children. I went to North Mesquite high school, where he was a three-year varsity player; two-year starter as a junior and senior. I received All-District honors twice and All-State my senior campaign. I was also Academic All-State as a senior.
I graduated high school in 2010 from North Mesquite HS in Mesquite, TX. Highly recruited out of high school my biggest offer came from Wisconsin but I also had looks from Oklahoma, Kentucky, Texas, Stanford, Northwestern just to name a few. I decided to choose UTEP and play closer to home. I graduated from UTEP in 2013 with my bachelors in Multidisciplinary Studies with a focus in Communications. I was a four-year started and earned all-conference my junior season 2012. I never missed a game in four seasons and started every game besides the first 4 of my freshman year
Coming out of UTEP at pro day I did 28 reps on the bench ran 5.09 40! I got invited to Dallas Cowboys Day camp during the spring 2014 and had a good workout. I never had any representation or help from an agent and that hindered my process. 2015 I played a game for Green Bay Blizzard IFL and went to camp with the Jacksonville Sharks AFL. These past two seasons I have been coaching varsity high school football and I have enjoyed it. But I know I have some great football left in me. I played defensive line through my college and pro career but I'm willing to switch to OL or FB. I'm only 24 and have had time to reflect on the game, refine my craft, furthermore improve on areas of my athleticism and strength that will make me an even better player. Mentally I've been learning from a distant by coaching, coming up with game plans and adjustments, but most importantly watching and studying NFL game tape!
There is nothing more at this moment in my life that I would rather be doing than pursing the opportunity to make a NFL or CFL roster and play for that organization. I am ready to compete at a high level and help a team work for a championship. The love I have for this game is paramount and I know when my playing days are over I still will be pursuing football at the highest level of coaching, but at this moment my mind set is still on playing!! I know for a fact that I am capable of going out on the field and making my presence felt. I have great work ethic, I'm punctual, pay attention to detail, relentless, and I'm loyal! If I can get that one opportunity, that one shot, I know that I will prove I have what it takes to be great and represent my family on that field!!
