Why do you play football?
I play football because I love the physicality of the sport and the brotherhood you form with your teammates.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?
My favorite sports star is Jason Kelce because of his role on the Eagles Super Bowl team and how he carries himself as a leader.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
Against Marple we ran a trap and our fullback broke through. All of the lineman caught up to him and pushed the pile another 10 or so yards. This play showed our heart as a unit and it happened when we started to build a big lead in a game that was close in the first half.

What are your goals for this coming season?
Our goals are to make it back to the district 1 playoffs and make a run. I personally have a goal to be 1st team all-league this year.

Either the Eagles or the Sixers

The Eagles Super Bowl because of what it meant for the franchise and how good of a game it was.

Caddyshack because it is one of my favorite movies ever

Name one thing that you’d love to do in football that may never happen?
Definitely run a lineman-eligible pass play for a touchdown.

I want to be like my dad because he is a very hard worker and has great judgement.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?
My 1-year-old nephew Marco because he had so much fun coming to my games last year
