What’s your pregame song?

“Guwup” by Young Thug.

What’s your favorite gameday tradition?

I eat a lot of candy before the game.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

I really don’t watch a lot of TV, but when I do, I usually watch cartoons; SpongeBob, Family Guy. Stuff like that.

What’s your earliest memory of football?

I remember I got hit in pee-wee football and didn’t want to play anymore. I walked off the field and my mom grabbed me by the ear and put me back on the field. I was mad and was crying the whole day, but she obviously knew what was best.

What is your favorite memory from your time at Ole Miss?

The Alabama game my freshman year in which we beat them in Tuscaloosa was definitely one of the most memorable moments.

How do you handle pregame jitters?

I just joke around a lot. The guys in the receiver room are a lot alike. We joke around a lot and try not to take things too seriously.

What is the last book you read?

“Showboat: The Life of Kobe Bryant”

What is your favorite college course?

I really like my criminal justice classes.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve ever had to overcome?

The biggest challenge for me was probably just adjusting to college life when I first arrived at Ole Miss as a freshman. I had always been one of the best players on every team I played on and when I got here, I had to start from the bottom and just work my way up.

What’s the main thing that attracted you to Ole Miss’ football program?

It’s just a great place to be and everyone is so nice. My mom is right up the road in Jackson, so that played a big part in it.

Who is your biggest fan? And if possible, explain what makes them your biggest fan.

My grandma is probably my biggest fan. Even if she’s not able to make it to a game, she’s always sending me inspirational things. If she can’t make it, she’s always telling me, “Make that first one for Granny.”

If you could only eat one thing the rest of your life, what would it be?

Definitely steak.

If you could tell the Ole Miss fans one thing, what would it be?

This football team loves you dearly.
