Why do you play football?
I play football because I love being around my teammates. Being around your friends and playing the game you love makes this game great.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
My favorite play was from week one last year. It was towards the end of the game and we were up a score and trying to put the game away. I ran for a 20 yard touchdown that got called back for a holding penalty. The very next play we ran the ball and I ran for a touchdown again and put the game away. I remember the crowd and sideline celebrating the touchdown knowing we were going to win the game.
