Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player of the Year

Your favorite Frisco moment this year was…

My favorite moment was being able to have my whole family day for the three days we were there and getting to enjoy it with them and seeing the city of Frisco. I had some extended family come on their own, so that was also a plus. That was my favorite moment, just having my whole family together.

You’ve played a lot of football in only two years in Fargo. How does that give you an advantage moving forward?

It helps me from a physical standpoint because I know when I was a redshirt, I didn’t really have to prepare my body. Now having gone through a 15-game season, I know how to prepare my body for these next years to come.

How excited are you to be the leader in the linebackers room next season?

The classes we have below me, they’re very athletic and I know the teachings of Nick DeLuca, Chris Board, Dan Marlette and Levi Jordheim will allow me to help the guys that are coming up in the linebacking corp.
