I like playing running back because: I like to straight embarrass people with moves,speed,and strength. I want the whole team and the stadium to know who number 5 is. I treat it as an art, not a position.

Best football moment: I've have plenty,but recent will be this past year when I made this guy fall by making a move on him and scored a 81 yard td. That was my first game of my junior year and I had 326 yrds with 4 tds on 16 carries.

My favorite play: it would probably be the "23 duo". It work most of the time because of Jamarco jones and Aaron Roberts. They block the DL and I do the rest.

Best player I've played against: Don't really know.

Favorite high school team to play against: I don't have a favorite. They are all enemies to me.
