I have big aspirations both on and off the field.


My Background

I am a student-athlete from Ocala, Florida who is attending Bethune-Cookman University. My love for football stems from playing in the Marion County Youth Football League when I was 11 years old. Playing football has given me the opportunity to make my dreams come true both on and off the field. However, I know that I am more than an athlete and can use my platform to make a difference in society. 

Like Malcolm X said, “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” I have big aspirations both on and off the field and attending Bethune-Cookman University will help me open the right doors toward achieving those goals.


Community Involvement

Since I was young, I always believed in giving back to my community and being more than an athlete. During my high school career, I won three first-place gold medals in public speaking with the Future Business Leaders of America. In my senior year, I was the President of the Student Government at Trinity Catholic.

In addition, I have been involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and they actually helped sponsor the Jaydon Hodge “More Than an Athlete” Camp that took place this past Memorial Day Weekend in Ocala, FL. After the camp, I created the ​​More Than An Athlete L.L.C which I am the CEO/Founder of.
