photo Joined the team in January and went through the off-season strength and conditioning program ... A big athlete who can run and hit ... Was put at free safety for spring practice ... Had to process a lot of information in a short time at an unfamiliar position ... Struggled to keep up and is still adjusting ... Needs to pick up a little more of the mental aspects of the position, which would allow him to play as fast and efficient as his ability will let him ... The coaches still feel he has the ability to factor in this fall ... His work and efforts over the summer and preseason will be closely monitored ... Could help out at a position that needs depth.

2007: Entered school for second semester in January 2008 ... Went through the off-season program, posting a 36-inch vertical jump and a 4.41 time in the 40 ... Worked at free safety during spring workouts ... Had two tackles during one of the spring scrimmages ... Was also in on two tackles during the Maroon-White game.

High School: Played linebacker for Coach Patrick Kane at Hermitage ... Totaled 73 tackles (51 solo), six forced fumbles, two sacks, seven tackles for loss and two pass breakups as a senior ... Scored touchdowns in four different ways (87-yard kick return, interception, fumble return, reception) ... Blocked two punts ... A first-team All-Colonial District selection as a senior ... Was also named second-team All-Metro by The Richmond Times-Dispatch ... Ranked the No. 33 player in the state of Virginia by The Roanoke Times.
