Why do you play football?

It really has changed my life. Football has led to so many opportunities and shaped me into the young man I am today.

Who is your favorite sports star and WHY?

Aaron Rodgers. I love his swagger and his confidence. He is someone I really look up too.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:

Sophomore year, it was our Hoco game, we were on the 40 going to the endzone, right hash. We were in a 2×2 set and we had a vertical by the #1 receiver all the way to the left. I saw he was getting pressed and he was our best receiver so pre snap I knew I was going to him, i let it rip, took a huge shot to the ribs, and he caught it, diving catch in the end zone.

What was last years season like for you?

It was challenging, but not everything in life is all sunshine and rainbows, so we have to pick it up and play together.

To have fun. I want to enjoy playing the game of football with my friends.

Green Bay packers. I love there rich history.

Nothing. I’m just controlling what I can control.

Depends on the defensive alignment. If the box is light, we could hit them with a counter, if the box is loaded, we are going to air it out.

No. If it was a sandwich it would be called a sandwich.
