2022West MiddlesexRB

My passion is football. Ever since I picked up a football i have wanted to be great. People around me think of me as a leader. My dream is to play in the NFL.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?

JuJu Smith-Schuster is my favorite athlete. It used to be Antonio Brown but we all know what happened there. Id have to say JuJu though. I love his passion for the game and the attitude he plays with. And his dances are awesome. I love his swag and just the way he goes about himself. He is a true leader on and off the field. Now my favorite athlete ever? Barry Sanders! Easily. I loved his game. I watch you tube videos of him every day. Just the way he glided on the field and every time he scored he just gave the ref the ball and acted like he had been there before. I love it. He is by far my favorite athlete ever!

Why do you play football?

I play football to make my family proud and just the fact that it is the greatest sport and its so much fun. Hitting people feels amazing too. I want to make the community of West Middlesex proud.

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?

Remember the Titans. Its the greatest movie of all time. I cry sometimes watching it. It just gets my football energy up and helps me remember what people went through back in the day. Blacks vs whites. Its crazy to think it still goes on. It sucks that it does. We are all equal. But that movie really puts that equalism in perspective.

What cartoon character do you think your head coach most resembles.

My coach reminds me of Adventure Times Finn. Finn is so passionate and always looking for an adventure and is just crazy with what he loves just like Coach Means. Coach Means is just a crazy cool dude and i love being around him he is like a father to me!

If your mom and dad are screaming at you from the stands, what is it they usually yell?

They yell a lot of crazy things but what they usually say is either run faster or hit him harder. Hitting people is my favorite part of the game so when i have a free legal hit that could be a crushing blow they love it!

Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like?

I don’t want to be like anyone. I like who i am. I want traits of people but i don’t want to be anyone other than myself.

Tell everyone something about you that would make them laugh out loud:

I’m not aloud social media and yet i still download it and ive gotten grounded for that 7 times in 3 years.

What is your most embarrassing sports moment?

My most embarrassing sports moment would have to be in midgets i got tackled by a girl at the 3 yard line. She grabbed my hand warmer. It was our night game against Greenville. I still scored 2 times that game but that sucked. I later dated her for 3 months.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?

Yes, my papa is actually my biggest fan. He is pretty much my dad. He is the closest you can get to a perfect human being. He is never negative and he treats everyone the same and likes everyone. I love him.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?

I love to watch youtube and listen to music. It is relaxing and i just love music.
