Why do you play football? 

I play football because it’s something I fell in love with from an early age.

What has been your best memory from football so far? 

My favorite memory was making it to the public league championship as a Freshman.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

My favorite pro athlete is Aaron Donald because he’s able to dominate guys so much bigger than him on the line.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My dad is my biggest fan because he’s been to most of my games since I was 8.

Is there any specific person you look up to and use as a role model?  

No one in particular, just try to be a better version of myself every day.

What is your desired major in college?  

I’d like to be a business major in college.

How has COVID-19 affected you?

COVID-19 pushed my Junior season until March which has slowed down my efforts on getting recruited and also caused gyms to close which made it a bit difficult to train.

Favorite play to run?

My favorite play to run is any inside zone.

What is your personal goal for this season?

My goal for the season is to help my team win as many games as possible and be named all-pub for either side of the ball.

Favorite pre-game meal?

My favorite pregame meal is pancakes and some sort of fruit.

Sports movie?

My favorite sports movie is The Waterboy.

Sport you’d love to play but can’t?

I’d love to play ice hockey but I can’t skate very well.

Most embarrassing sports moment?

My most embarrassing sports moment was letting in an own goal in hockey in the championship.

What are you looking forward to most this year?

This season I’m looking forward to being able to showcase all the work I put in during the long offseason.

Favorite activities?

Outside of football I like to lift weights and play basketball.
