Why do you play football?
I play football because it was the first game I ever fell in love with and from a young age something about just going out there and competing head to head using nothing but will and determination to win has really kept me into it. Along with the brotherhood it brings.
What has been your best memory from football so far?
Definitely the win against Northern Cambria to end off last year. That win highlighted our team’s toughness and shows just how tough our schedule is.
Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?
Easily Aaron Donald. I mean first off I’m a huge Pitt fan and he truly embodies the Panther mentality also my style is like his being undersized and needing to use leverage along with power and technique to get by bigger guys.
Who is your biggest fan and why?
Easily my dad. My mom has been there from the start too but my dad has really pushed me in athletics to just go out and be the best that I could be.
Is there any specific person you look up to and use as a role model?
Well other than Aaron Donald and my dad I would say, Joe Rogan, just from listening to his podcasts you can see how much time and effort he puts into everything he does and how meticulous he is in bringing out the best in himself.
What is your desired major in college?
Probably Biochemistry as I plan on becoming an Orthopedic Surgeon.
Favorite play to run?
Anything where I’m pulling.
What is your personal goal for this season?
Personal goal me is to just go out and prove to myself that all of my hard work has paid off and I still consider it a personal goal to want to get my team into playoffs this year.
Favorite pre-game meal?
Chicken because who doesn’t love chicken.
Favorite sports movie has to be Remember the Titans.
Sport you’d love to play but can’t?
Baseball. I loved baseball growing up but just didn’t stick with it.
Most embarrassing sports moment?
Every time I messed up in a game and we had to watch it on film over and OVER again.
What are you looking forward to most this year?
I am really looking forward to just competing and getting close with teammates again. I truly believe our team is trending upward and getting better by the day.
