We caught up with the offensive standout to ask him a few questions.
What has this season been like for you? “It’s been very good, I’m a senior and I’m a leader on this team. I felt like last season I didn’t get as many balls as I wanted, but this year I have and I’m producing.”
What are your expectations for the playoffs? “I’m expecting us to go really far. I want to go to state, but I hope we make it to at least the third round because my sophomore and junior year we made it to the second round of the playoffs. My goal is to make it farther than that this year.”
Who is your role model? “DeSean Jackson because both of us have speed in common, and I think that his play style is just like mine.”
Why did you choose to commit to Pittsburgh? “We thought it was a good fit because they throw the ball more than any team in the ACC. They have the most throwing attempts in the conference. The coaches and the team are also all together and on the same page. I think it’s going to be a good program once the 2020 class gets in.”
What is it like to play under the lights at Westside each week? “I love it. I wouldn’t trade it for any other team. It’s a tradition that you can’t get anywhere else.”
