Why do you play football? 

I play football because I am addicted to the game. Whether that’s playing or watching football takes up most of my time. I love the Friday Night Light feeling, it’s unlike any other.

What has been your best memory? 

My best memory would have to be my kick return touchdown in a district playoff game as a Sophomore with three minutes to go in the fourth quarter while trailing.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My biggest fan would have to be my parents and grandparents. They make sure to never miss a game and if they have to, they try to see if they can move what they had planned originally.

Who is your biggest role model? 

My biggest role model would be Tom Brady. He went from pick 199 to the GOAT. He’s the definition of if you work hard and the next man up mindset.

What is your desired major in college? 


In your opinion, where is the toughest place to play? 

Cumberland Valley and Kottmeyer Stadium.

What is your personal goal for this year? 

1,500 all-purpose yards and 10+ touchdowns

Is a hot dog a sandwich? 


Sport you’d love to play but can’t? 


Most embarrassing sports moment?

Fumbling a kickoff in a playoff game at home.
