What is the best part about playing football?
The best part about playing football is the teamwork, work ethic, and dedication required for the team to be successful.
What has been your best memory from football so far?
My favorite memory from football was being able to get the start as a freshman against our rival and winning in a close hard fought game.
Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?
I would say my favorite pro athlete is Patrick Mahomes because of his confidence on the field and his strong desire to win.
Is there any specific person you look up to and use as a role model? 
My father is my biggest role model because of his strong work ethic and dedication. He continuously coaches me on how to become the best student/athlete on and off the field.
Coming off a year with COVID struggles, what do you think this year will be like?
Coming off a year with COVID struggles, I think this year will be way more enjoyable because we will just be able to play the game we love and not have to worry about getting shut down the next day due to a COVID case on the team or the opposing team.
Favorite play to run?
Sprint out pass
Favorite sports movie?
My favorite sports movie is We Are Marshall.
Sport you’d love to play but can’t?
Favorite place to eat out?
My favorite place to eat out is Chick-fil-A
Most embarrassing sports moment?
My most embarrassing sports moment was this past basketball season where I shot an air ball at the free throw line.

What are you looking forward to most this year?

I am looking forward to finally being able to play in front of fans and also playing a merged schedule with the Schuylkill League
