Thank you, Coach Elliot, for all the knowledge and teaching that you gave to me and for taking a chance on me to be a part of your offense as a running back. I appreciate you!
Thanks to all other Coaches, Athletic trainers, Strength & Conditioning Coach, and Clemson Athletics staff who have touched me, taught me, and assisted me. I appreciate all of you!
To all my fellow teammates, keep grinding and doing what you all love. I will not forget the bond that we built as a family. I wish all of you the best in whatever you all do!
These past 4-years have been life changing, from academics, athletic, and development. However, I have gained the knowledge, and I have developed the discipline to move forward and succeed.
I made the decision to transfer to continue to move forward in my career and better my opportunities for my future. I have enjoyed my time with Clemson Tigers!
However, I am thankful to announce that I will continue my college and athletic career at West Virginia University!”
