Why do you play football?
Football, or sports in general, have always been something that I just cant stay away from. When I was younger, I used to think about people who didnt play sports and just think to myself, “What, are they crazy?”. But for football more specifically, the energy and the hype around every single game just gives me a feeling like no other.
Who is your favorite sports star and why?
Hands down, Conor McGregor. A lot of people hate on him for the way he goes about his matches, but the attitude and confidence he has is just so impressive to me. In my mind, he is just a straight dog when it comes to competition and he doesn’t fear anyone, even after defeat.
Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
My favorite play of all time was in our rivalry game against Lower Merion. There were about 11 seconds left in the half, and they were punting. I was back to return it, but the punt wasn’t catchable and it bounced and rolled away from me. But instead of picking it up, the LM guys kind of surrounded it waiting for someone else to do something. I saw my chance, and I ran in, picked it up, and sprinted the other way towards the endzone. After a massive block (Seth Fliszar, #12) and 65 yards, I strolled into the endzone. But my favorite part about the play was not the actual touchdown: It was looking back into our student section and seeing a full set of bleachers roaring and shouting, while the other side of the bleachers was dead silent.
What game, yours, college or pro, was your favorite game and why?
My favorite game to watch is the Army-Navy game. Not a specific game, but the energy in that stadium with all the cadets and midshipmen is unlike anything I’ve ever been near.
What is your favorite Pro team, any sport?
My favorite pro team is the New York Yankees. Some people call me a bandwagon, but I kind of chose them at a young age to have a competitive relationship with my dad, a Mets fan, and mt godfather, a Red Sox fan.
What cartoon character do you think your head coach most resembles.
Coach Mellor definitely resembles Peter Griffin just because of how relaxed and funny he is.
If your mom and dad are screaming at you from the stands, what is it they usually yell?
It’s either my dad screaming “Go Teddy go” as loud as possible, or my mom screaming something I dont understand.
Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like?
Someone who really inspires me is my older brother Nicholas. Even though he gets mad at me 95% of the time we are together (sometimes for no reason, in my opinion), he is always trying to make me better at whatever we are doing.
Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t:
I would love to competitively box or do MMA, but my mom would never let that happen.
Tell everyone something about you that would make them laugh out loud:
I know all the lyrics to multiple T-Swift songs.
What is your favorite football memory to date?
I will never forget beating Lower Merion 20-0.
What is your favorite play to run?
95 Rose/Linda, Halfback Screen
What scares you the most?
Not achieving my goals.
