How long have you been a long snapper?
I started to practice long snapping my sophomore year as a backup and I started to get more reps going into my junior year. Now this upcoming season I’ll be a senior I’ll be the starting long snapper
What got you started being a long snapper?
This a good question, what got into being a long snapper was during the 2019 season, it was just a regular day at practice and the special team coach asked me if I wanted to try long snapping and I did and I was actually surprised with myself because that was my first time and I just got better since then.
What is the hardest part of playing the defensive line?
For me, the hard part about play Dline is going up against offensive linemen that’s a little bigger than me. I’m not the biggest Dline but I try to make the best of it, I know I still room for improvement.
During the spring season, what will you remember the most?
During the spring season, I will remember the defense-winning games for the team and the good energy we had on every play. Something else I’ll remember is playing against the Chester clippers because they were undefeated the whole season until we played them and we beat them and were the only team that scored on them.
What is the one part of your game that you feel you have to improve to become a better player?
One part of my game I feel like I need to improve on is understanding my assignment on the Dline whether I’m playing Defensive tackle or Nose tackle.
Who is the one team you have to defeat during the season to make it a good year?
Well we want to defeat every team we play that’s the goal, but if I have to pick I would say the Pennwood Patriots since they are our biggest rival.
Of the road stadiums, you have played in which do you like the best?
I would say in the 2019 season when we play Quakertown. I say them because their fan base was just amazing & u could feel the energy with all the people there. A stadium I looking forward to playing in this season when we play Reading because we are playing them at a college stadium.
What has been your most memorable moment on the football field?
My most memorable moment on the field was when my coach put me in a varsity game as a 10th grader and I got my first varsity tackle.
How important is it for the team to start the 2021 season with a win?
t is important to me and the rest of my teammates because we are going to be seniors & we want to start off on a good note and end the season on a good note.
What is your game day routine?
My game day routine is to clear my head, maybe drink a protein shake and listen to music and just put everything together I did in practice that week into the game on Friday nights.
