Coaches Comments: He’s a homerun hitter capable of scoring from anywhere on the field. Very strong and explosive. Runs with great vision and balance. squares up and plays physical in pass protection. Runs very nice routes with soft hands. Has an excellent jump step and has the extra gear that most backs don’t have. He has that it factor that coaches just cant teach. very competitive young man.
