Q: If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
If I could have dinner with 3 people dead or alive I would have dinner with my mother Camille and my dad Larry and Fred Jackson. I choose these three because I would not be the man I am today without my parents love and support and guidance . I would also not be where I am today without them, they mean the world to me and more. I also choose Fred Jackson because he is my idol and living proof that the division you play doesn't define your future and that with hard work and the right mindset you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.
