Q: What was the combine like?
A: I did well at my last combine and got invited to this one, so it was a blessing to come back to another combine.
Q: What were some things you learned?
A: I learned a lot of different things and some of them I have never done before. I learned different techniques, like a drop-back drill was one of them.
Q: How many quarterbacks attended the combine?
A: There were at least 15 different QBs at the combine including myself, Jason Perez from Rio Grande City and Jean Salinas from McAllen Rowe.
Q: What was it like working out at AT&T Stadium?
A: It was crazy. I always watch the Cowboys so to be on the same field as the Cowboys was awesome.
Q: What was it like working with NFL coaches?
A: It was great. We don’t get that every day so I listened and took it all in. Being able to work one-on-one with them was a great experience.
Q: What stood out to you the most?
A: There is a lot of talent up north and it’s good to see all that talent. It’s great competition and it’s always great to meet new people.
