Why do you play football? 

I play football because I always loved the game growing up and it helped me release anger if it was practice or even a game and I play now to eventually make it to the next level so I can finally help my mom out and get her back on her feet with my six sisters.

What has been your best memory from football so far? 

My best memory was being able to play with people that I called family. No matter win or lose and hearing my name get called.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

My favorite athlete is George Kittle because he plays with so much heart and passion that it looks like he can’t be stopped, while day in and day out he makes sure he does his best to make sure his team wins.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My biggest fan is my mom because we have been through it all and she still makes sure we are good and made so many sacrifices just so me and my sisters are good and eat and I would not be here without her.

Is there any specific person you look up to and use as a role model? 

I don’t have a person I look up to but the closest is my mom. 

What is your desired major in college?  

My major in college is athletic training and to be a Chiropractor in the future.

What are some team goals for this upcoming season? 

We have a shortened season but I still want to win it all with my brothers for our last go around together and change the culture of my school and the team.

How has COVID-19 affected you?

Covid affected me in a bad way because so many people in my family lost their job and I got football and basketball almost taken away from me but we could do no workouts leading up to the season. So our season didn’t go as planned, I am one of the people to have Covid and it was horrible because I couldn’t do anything and personally, I didn’t have that many aftermath results of it but my smell still goes in and out.

Favorite play to run?

My favorite play to run is a pop pass for me to block then slip out for 10 yards wide open for a pass.

What is your personal goal for this season?

My personal goal for this season is to finally get recognized as a great player and person I really am on and off the field.

Favorite pre-game meal?

Any type of meat with a side of rice and beans if not that a lot of fruits.

Sports movie?

Without a doubt, it would be Remember The Titans that movie made me love and appreciate football 10 times more it helped build character as a person.

Sport you’d love to play but can’t?

I would love to play soccer because it helps with footwork but to be a little honest I am not fast enough.

Is a hotdog a sandwich? 

Personally, I wouldn’t consider it a sandwich because the hot dog itself is what makes it. Not and it would count so many other foods as sandwiches.

Favorite activities?

Football, basketball, play ps4, or just going outside having fun.
