Here are some of Ray’s highlights from this past season.
PH: You have an offer from every major football program in the country, what does that mean to you?
RD:all that means is that i have been blessed and doing all i can to utilize the gifts the lord has blessed me with.
PH: Out of all of those schools, are you leaning towards one, or have a favorite?
RD: Not at this time.
PH: What is the key to your success?
RD: put and keep God first in all that i do, because without him none of this would be possible.

PH: You have attended camps at Alabama and Auburn, what was your favorite thing about each school?
RD: Alabama was my sophomore year and i liked the way the worked and got your all.
Auburn-a lot of people talk about family but you really see it at Auburn .
PH: . You are a 5 star on Scout.com but only a 4 star on Rivals, what are you going to do this season to make sure you are a 5 star on both?
RD: Rankings don’t make me as a player, so whether i am a 5 star on both or drop to a 1 star or even unranked, I’m gonna play my game and do my best.
PH: . Would you consider yourself the best DE in High School Football? Why or Why not?
RD: absolutely, i feel that if your not the best at what you’re doing, you are doing something wrong. rankings may say otherwise but in my mind i’m a step above all including the Michael Strahans, Jared Allen’s, and Julius Pepper’s. they may beat up for saying that but that’s just my mentality.
PH: According to your scout.com player evaluation, your biggest weakness is Toughness? Do you agree with that?
RD: Not at all.
PH: What is important to you when making a decision on where you will play?
RD: Academics above all, people, and what the school has to offer.
