After graduating in 2018 I decided that I wanted to continue playing. That decision has taken me to new parts of the world and I am very grateful for the opportunities that I have received to not only play this game but also to teach it and spread what I know. I am now looking for my next opportunity to continue what I have been doing. I am a team player and I make everyone around me better, each team that I have played for overseas has seen an increase in success from their previous season. If you would like that to be you next season then look no further.
So far while playing overseas I have played multiple positions so I am capable of bringing value to more positions than just receiver for your program. As a receiver I pride myself in great route running and on defense I take pride in having great coverage skills and forcing turnovers.
But, my value does not stop there. While overseas I have also coached for each of my teams. While in Australia I was the teams receivers coach, defensive backs coach, and the offensive and defensive assistant coach. I helped this team reach their second playoff appearance in team history and win more games than they ever have. In Portugal I was the teams receivers coach, special teams assistant, and an offensive assistant and helped the team win a national championship. While at home I work as a personal trainer and work with more than 50 athletes helping to develop their skills. I have been doing this for roughly 6 years now and have been learning from one of the top qualified trainers in the world who is certified as a Master Trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, only 80 other people have reached this level of certification and I have had the pleasure of learning from one of these people. So not only do I know what it takes to develop an athlete at the individual level, I also know what it takes to be a championship team.
I signed to play for the 89ers in 2020 but the season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though the season was canceled I still spent a few months working with the team and coaching them. During my time there here were some of the things I did prior to the season cancelation:
-Special Teams Coordinator
-Created and installed a playbook for offense
-Organized the practices for offense
-Played QB for the team to install the offense prior to the import QB arriving
-Met with many of the players outside of practice during the week to help them develop their skills
-Held online film review sessions to coach the team on how they can improve from their previous season
-Assisted in scouting potential import QBs
-Coached all offensive positions as well as DBs
-Helped team organize and prepare community events
In the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 I played for the Lisboa Devils. While with the Devils I was the receivers coach as well as an offensive assistant. We finished the regular season ranked #2 and went on to win the national championship.

I spent the summer of 2018 playing in Australia for the South Eastern Predators where I took on many roles for the team. Those roles included being the receivers coach, offensive assistant, defensive assistant, social media manager, film set up, team co-captain, and even helping recruit new local players for the season. I helped the team achieve its first winning season in club history as well as a playoff appearance. Below are my stats for my time with the Predators.

I played for Marist college which is a D-1AA school in New York where saw playing time on special teams for kickoffs and punts. I learned a lot in my time there and have grown a lot as a player since I have finished school last year. A small accolade I earned was 3 time scout team player of the week. I am capable of providing contact references for coaches and players who played with and coached me during my time there.
