He most recently played football with the Cape Fear Heroes where he was recently awarded first-team all Arena League Linebacker for having the most tackles in the league.

I won first team all Arena League Linebacker June 30th, 2018 I had the most tackles out of all the linebackers in the league. I’m going to bring energy to the Browns workout.
