Commenting on how his senior season went, he said, "Our team got put out in the first round of the state playoffs and we would have liked to have done better. Personally I felt good about the way I played. I had around 1,300 yards rushing and 200 to 300 yards receiving."

He notes that his two favorite games of his senior season were against rivals Callaway, where he played before transferring to Troup in 2010, and against LaGrange High. "It was so fun to get to play in those rivalry games as a senior.

He said that he still gets along well with his former teammates at Callaway. "They didn't give me any grief," he pointed out. "There was a little trash talk, but it was all in fun. Most of them are still my boys. LaGrange jumped out on us as soon as possible and they thought it was over with, but we stayed with it and were having a lot of fun out there playing the game and came back and won. It was real fun"
