These memories and experiences that I have been through these past 4 years will stick with me for the rest of my life and I’m am thankful for the many relationships that have been built throughout my experience. I want to thank both coaching staffs: past, and present, with providing me with opportunities that I dreamed of. Y’all pushed me and developed me in many ways, not only as a football player, but as a man and I am better because of it.

To my teammates, this is was not an easy decision. I want to thank all of you guys for the many exciting and amazing memories we created together, I love all of you guys like my brothers and will keep everyone of you guys in my prayers. You guys are like brothers to me and will FOREVER have a special place in my heart. I know y’all will go on to do great things! I will always support you guys!

To the Ragin Cajun community! What an amazing tight-knit community with amazing people who genuinely care about the people within. I am so thankful to have been apart of this community. I’ve had so many amazing memories at Cajun Field because of you and will miss everything about it!

With that being said, I felt like this was the best decision for me and my future. I will be possibly transferring and furthering my education at another institution to get my Master’s Degree. I will always remember my Cajun family and the memories that l shared with the great people over here, I love and thank you all.
