Why do you play football? 

I play football for the fun of course, and for the competitive hostile environment it brings.

What has been your best memory? 

My best memory is without a doubt being a part of last year’s football team.  I had some of the best experiences of my life during last year’s season.  The most profound memory was definitely us coming together as a team to take on undefeated Clearfield and easily win.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My biggest fans are my parents.  They each are heavily invested in my sports career and are the first ones to congratulate me or give me advice.

Who is your biggest role model? 

My biggest role model is my dad.  My dad provides the best advice and support.  He also leads by example on how to be a good man.  He always looks on the bright side of things and continues to persevere through everything.

What is your desired major in college? 

plan on majoring in Biology pre-medicine.

In your opinion, where is the toughest place to play?

In football, none of the road games were more challenging than the other.  But in basketball Penn Cambrian was definitely the hardest place to play because of the sheer mass of students they had and all of them were astonishingly coordinated.  Every time we play them it amazes me how intense their student section is.

What is your personal goal for this year? 

My personal goal this year is to have another very successful football season and continue to advance in the weight room.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? 

A hot dog is most definitely not a sandwich.  A hot dog is a whole different category.

Sport you’d love to play but can’t? 

A sport I’d love to play is ice hockey.  It is just as physical as football, and I can ice skate.  The issue is if I played two extremely physical sports it would take a major toll on my body.
Most embarrassing sports moment?
The most embarrassing sports moment is when we played Westmont in basketball.  I was so bad at shooting that the other team would cheer when they saw me starting to shoot.  They would cheer when I got the ball and yell at me to shoot because they knew there was a very slim chance of me making it.  This went on all game and it was demoralizing because the more frustrated I got the less likely I was to make the next shot.
Favorite activities outside of football? 
My favorite activity to do outside of football is lifting.  I lift 5-6 days a week, 52 weeks a year.  Lifting used to be primarily for sports but eventually, I fell in love with it and now I do it for fun as well.
