Answer: Really just the mindset has been the biggest thing that’s switched from playing quarterback to wide receiver.

Q: What do you think has helped by playing quarterback, transitioning to wide receiver?

A: I think it just kinda gives you a natural feel of what the defense is doing. After I get my route just looking at the defense, seeing what they’re in, what kinda coverage they’re in. If I’ll be able to get an inside or outside release. Just little stuff like that.

Q: Who in the NFL would you compare your game to?

A: I definitely like kinda compare it to who I kinda watch and have the same body type as kinda like A.J. Green (of the Cincinnati Bengals). He’s a taller reciever, very good at running routes, very fast and everything like that. Whether I play like him or not is kinda up to other people to decide.

Q: Why El Camino?

A: Being from a Division 1 program and going to a junior college, really just appreciating the game of football, you know working on all the little things. Getting to know all the different guys on the team and everything like that. Just being able to work with all of them, all of them came from different scenarios and different levels of football.

Q: Are you surprised by your success at wide receiver?

A: I just didn’t know what I could do at receiver, didn’t have any previous opportunities at it. I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m definitely vey happy with what I’m doing now, just gonna continue to work harder and get better at it.
