You guys got to play what was called the spring season do you think this will benefit you guys come August as far as being in football shape?

I definitely believe that the spring season helped us a lot with football shape because we got a chance to play earlier than other teams and really got a feel for football again when some teams we have to play haven’t put on pads in a year.

As a defensive back where on the field do you prefer to play?

As a DB I prefer to play in man coverage because I like taking challenges and staying with shifty receivers is a hard task.

 Who is the old team you enjoying beating the most?

The team I enjoyed beating the most was definitely Penn Wood. going into that game a lot of people doubted us and said it would be our hardest game, we finished that game with a 36-14 win and I caught my first pick as well.

What is your favorite memory as far as football goes?

I think my favorite football memory was turning associates into brothers as we built an unbreakable bond while playing with each other.

Are you hoping to play football in college?

Yes, I hope to become a division 1 defensive back at the next level, but division doesn’t matter to me I just want 4 more years to play the game.

Which road game do you look most forward to?

We haven’t received where games are this season but definitely archbishop wood, that game will be personal after the loss in the state championship in the 2019-2020 season.

What do you do to help encourage the younger players on your team?

I always make sure the younger teammates are comfortable with the team from giving them help with drills to bringing them with the team outside of practice to build a bond.

What is your favorite class?

My favorite class is definitely math.

Pro or college football?

I believe college football brings an energy that no sport ever could compare to.

What is the hardest part of playing football for Cheltenham?

I think as a Cheltenham football player you have to love the game on another level, our head coach shows so much passion every day in practice and games it’s incredible. I think you really have to be passionate and if not you will have a hard time playing for this team
