 BM: I seen from your UCLA profile that Ray Lewis is athlete you admire the most. What about him makes you admire him?

"His work ethic, yes he’s a talented guy, but he bases his success on the effort he gives and I think that’s great. It’s not often you have talented players that are also the hardest workers on there team."

BM: What do you see as your best asset on the football field?

"Being a leader!"

BM: What about biggest weakness?

"I’m my biggest critic I need to improve everything"

BM: What can you bring to the team that drafts you?

"Great work ethic day in and day out, not just some. Ill simply be the same guy everyday, plus be out in the community."

BM: Is there any current NFL player that you would compare your playing style to?

"Every RB is different have there own swag, style and way of play. There are some great RBS but I just try and make myself better in all ways."

BM: What in your mind, is your biggest accomplishment on or off the field?

"On the field, being UCLA career rushing leader. Off the field, being the first in my family to graduate from college and also accepting Jesus Christ into my life."

BM: One last question, what do you want to do once your football days are over?

"I aspire to become the Mayor of Los Angeles."

I want to again thank Johnathan Franklin for taking the time out of his schedule to do this interview with me. Good luck in the upcoming combine, NFL Draft and your years to come in the NFL.
