Q: Did you play any other sports in high school?

A: I ran track and played basketball early on. I went to (state championships) for track in the long jump and relay races.

Q: Do you try to model your game after any current or former pro?

A: Growing up, I wanted to play safety and be like Sean Taylor. Eventually, I started to model my game after the guys in the Legion of Boom – tall, lanky defensive backs who shut it down.

Q: If you could play another position, what would it be?

A: Quarterback. A lot of people don’t know it, but I can throw the ball really well and I think I’d be able to control a huddle.

Q: What was the most memorable game you’ve played in?

A: My first varsity start in high school was pretty memorable. That was back when everything was easier. I had two interceptions returned for touchdowns and a fumble recovery.

Q: First sports jersey you owned?

A: I had a Michael Vick Falcons jersey growing up. That was my first.

Q: What was your first job growing up?

A: I used to bulletproof cars for the government and Secret Service for a company called Texas Armoring Corporation. I was in charge of the gas tanks, making sure they were lined with bulletproof materials.

Q: Any nicknames growing up?

A: Slimm.

Q: Biggest pet peeve?

A: Burping – that’s gross.

Q: Strangest thing you like to eat?

A: Bottle cap candies. Everyone looks at me weird when I say that but I eat a lot of them.

Q: Favorite movie?

A: The Dark Knight

Q: Favorite emoji?

A: The weird eyebrows one.

Q: Does your family have a history of playing sports?

A: My whole generation – cousins and all – were really athletic. My brother, Rodney, played football at Langston and my sister, Aleshia, played basketball at South Florida. Plus, my uncle Eric was a first-round pick by the Bills in 2000 and played five seasons.

Q: Favorite vacation spot?

A: New Orleans. The food there is amazing.

Q: Favorite thing to do when you’re not at the VMAC?

A: I relax and play video games, mostly Fortnite.

Q: What is your proudest achievement outside of football?

A: My proudest achievement is my daughter. Pictures of her calm me down before games and remind me why I play.
