Currently training myself at Storm Strength and Fitness in Wilmington, NC.

Q: What is your favorite combine drill (40, Shuttle, 3-Cone, Bench, Broad, Vert)? 

40 and Bench.

Working out or training others, art or something creative or hanging it with family and friends.

Art or something crafty, workout, watch movies.

Q: If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be and why? 

I would have to say Pierre Garçon, because he played D3 football and I would just like to pick his brain on the the things that he did and what I should do to help me get to the level that I need to get to.  

Other than that I would had dinner with my father and grandfather because they know what's best for me the are going to support and give me the advice that I need.
