Coaches Comments: TJ is a very good athlete which makes him very dangerous on both sides of the ball. Coming late into football he continues to get better every year and we believe he will be one of the best in the area on both sides of the football this year. With his instincts at safety combined with his speed, he is one of the best defensive backs in the area and should continue to gain interest from colleges. We plan on finding additional ways of using him on the football field.
