Former NFL LB Mike Jones was his high school football coach at Hazelwood East High School in St. Louis, Mo.

Due to a glitch in Madden 15, he measured 1-foot-2 in the game. He used that notoriety, which included interviews on ESPN and CNN, to spread his mother’s words of wisdom that no matter how small you are, always dream big and live big.

Musically gifted, has played the drums since the age of seven and sang in church choir, where his late father, Elmer, was the pastor.
