WHAT DOES HIS COACH SAY ABOUT HIM?: When you see him on the field, what stands out to you?
What makes him a special player is his ability to always seem to make the right decision. A lot of time with DBs, you say, ‘Aw, I wish you wouldn’t have undercut that, I wish you would have stayed over the top, I wish you would have jumped or I wish you wouldn’t have jumped.’ But Joshua always seems to make the right decision in those situations.

How have you seen him improve over his high school career?
I’ve been here for five years so I’ve had the opportunity to see him come through as an eighth-grader, ninth-grader, tenth-grader. It’s been fun to watch him nature and grow. He’s a guy that’s just really invested into his God-given ability and has made the most of it.
