Why do you play football ?
Football is like my therapy. I have played it since the age of 4 and anytime I am having a bad day, it’s my escape from all my problems.
Who is your favorite sports star and why ?
Drew Brees, other then him being a naturally great leader and speech giver, I am a huge New Orleans Saints fan and every time he was playing in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, or even D.C., I would always beg my dad to go see him play.
Do you have a favorite play you remember the most ? Explain:
My favorite play is called 333 DDK, I love the blocking scheme of the play with my left side trapping, my right guard and tackle sweeping under them from a pull and a kick. Last year I had 100 yards alone at Conestoga Valley just from that play.

Difficult, overall mostly because of our teams injuries causing lots of underclassmen to step up. However, that’s what makes me so confident for this coming year. Our underclassman’s ability to step up and take on leadership roles.
