Why do you play football?
From a young age my dad got me into football watching the steelers on TV, ever since then I just had a passion for the game. I love being with my brothers on the field on a Friday night battling against whoever were playing. The Atmosphere, The Emotions, Everything.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?
Diontae Johnson, I feel like I can relate to him in which he is very under looked. I feel like I’m under the radar for alot of oppossing teams coming up this fall, and I sorta like that.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
Last Season against northern Bedford, they just scored on us, the score was something like 32 – 26. we come back on the field on offense and Mitchell Pristas bombs it up to me on a post route and I walk in the endzone for a 60 yard Td. Or against wimber last season we were on defense and their running back breaks one lose for a gaurented touchdown and I chased him down from across the field for 50 yards and punched the ball out and rolled out our endzone for a touchback.

What are your goals for this coming season?
My personal goal is to have 600 yards and 10 tds.

What is your favorite Pro team, any sport?
Pittsburgh Steelers
What game, yours, college or pro, was your favorite game and why?
last season against Northern Bedford, I had 2 receiving tds and over 100 yards.

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

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

Name one thing that you’d love to do in football that may never happen?
Have to play emergency qb for a game.

Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like? WHY?
My Lifting and defensive coach, Coach Schleich. He is just an outstanding mentor to me and the rest of my team, He comes in the weighroom everyday with a great attitude and does anything he can to help us get better everyday. He motivates me to be the best version of myself I can possibly be weather thats in the weigh room, on the field, or just in general. Coach Schleich joined our coaching staff this past winter and he has already created memories for me and the guys that will last a lifetime.

Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t:

What is your most embarrassing sports moment?
dropping a wide open Hb pass play. I had open field and tried to run before I had the ball. I got too excited.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?
Probably my aunt Annie, she tries to make it to as many games as she can.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?
Golf. It’s very relaxing and just something I’ve picked up recently and I really enjoy it.
