First Draft


Thursday night twin I'll be home in Maryland, a relocated, Maryland freshman, high school so going to be back home to get some bowling in and have some fun. And it's gonna be great night bowling. Yes, sir before during after how's that happening probably during so I'll pay attention to the TV saying you may be literally bowling while. Your name is called. I'm sure that I'll get a phone call while before the for the pigs in awe, stop everything I'm doing to watch it. And do you have any sense at this point in time where you might end up. There's been so much speculation always about the quarterbacks about where they would go. What is your sense about? How this process may play out. You never know man them about five meetings that I've pretty confident about sure you know, that the teams Miami and the raiders Broncos and giants and Redskins in a great about all those meetings degrade job as far as a getting to know the guys over there doing a great job within the learning plays. And being able to explain what I did in a season on film. And you know, all those means will what you like to sit down there. Jon Gruden haven't put you on the white board. It was a Gruden camp without the cameras. It was great. You know, he's from Dayton, Ohio. So he's a very great attempting to Hieaux and for for him. They would have to come might school. Get to know me as a person in as quarterback in in some time with me for for about two days. It was a great experience. What stood out about your trip to Washington considering your from the Maryland area? Yeah. Definitely the H T R. And you know, Dan, Snyder son goes to my high school so have a connection there. And of course, Shawn springs was one of my mentors played for the Redskins is a solicited DNV area. So of course, being able to spend time over in the Redskins and beating Doug Williams. It's benefit time with coach Gruden definitely for like there's another possibility as well. Dan, Snyder son goes to your high school, do you know him at all personally, unknown, not not great friends with them. But he's he's younger than me. But definitely definitely aware of who he is. And Sean springs is one of your mentors. And I spent some time with Sean at the. Owners meetings, and he was once third overall pick. What did he tell you about the Redskins franchise, and wherever may await you here in the coming days. Dwayne definitely even being in the area for those the the years that I was there in Maryland, the both taking very seriously down there, and they're gonna win if the draft me, I really hope that I can add to the franchise in, you know, bring some bring some wins to that that organization if you wound up playing for the Washington Redskins. What would that be like as somebody who's from that area? It'd be it'd be fantastic going to go to high school in Maryland and be able to play for Washington Redskins close to home in the said to have a lot of my supporters in the area in a lot of the kids. Go to me to be able to go to manifold games. It'd be great not being able to go to Maryland definitely something that I took pride in going house eight represented the DNV area. So now that if I were able to get by the Redskins all deathly ill, make sure whole that whole that standard not doing one of your other mentors is defense. Gets wide receiver. Muhammad sue how did that happen? And what are you going for him? So MO was my youth. Coach at eight nine ten years old Tahu best firm homage abbey was not made and motives happened being high school, and he would he come after practice. He would coaches practices, and I've known MO for ten twelve twelve years now, and he's been a great guy as far as Megan..
