KF: What kind of stats did you put up last season?
CW: I had 50 tackles and 4 interceptions.

KF: Tell us a little bit about your best game last season.
CW: My best game was when we played in the state championship against South Pointe. I only had an interception in that game late during the fourth quarter. It was memorable for me, because I went into game with out expecting any INT or tackles . The only thing that was on my mind is winning.

KF: Who's somebody you thought was your toughest matchup last season?
CW: Really I haven't came across anybody last year. But I plan on sticking Akia Booker from Byrnes this year when we play them. He's a good wide receiver for me to stick.

KF: What are your goals for next season for the team and on a personal level?
CW: My number one goal for this upcoming season is try to make another run for a state championship with my team. My personal goal is to get at least 10 interceptions this year.

KF: What schools are you hearing from currently?
CW: Purdue, South Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina State, Alabama, and Florida.

KF: Out of those schools which ones are recruiting you the hardest right now?
CW: Purdue and South Carolina.

KF: You've already been offered by Purdue, how does it feel to already have an offer?

CW: I want to hear more from Ohio State, Florida State, Notre Dame, and Georgia.

KF: Seeing guys like Everett Golson and Tyler Knox blow up does it motivate you to work harder to be the next big time prospect out of Myrtle Beach?
CW: Yes seeing guys like Everett Golson and Tyler Knox motivates me a lot. Seeing my former teammate now at Notre Dame and my other teammate with a lot of offers, makes me hungry. If they can do it, I can, and a lot of work comes behind it.

KF: We know it's still early in the recruiting process for you, do you have an idea of what you'll be looking at the most when looking potential colleges?
CW: I'll base it on the coaching staff, early playing time, and the atmosphere.
