_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Why do you play football?
I play football because I love the game, it challenges me to be the best version of myself, and it can hopefully provide scholarship opportunities for my college education.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?
Giannis Antetokounmpo, because I admire his story and what he stands for. Having a Greek ethnicity myself, I’m sometimes called the Greek Freak as a nickname after him.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
When I was in 8th grade, I played middle linebacker and was on a blitz play. I crushed the QB and RB together as they were handing off the ball, caused a fumble, and my teammate ran it back for a touchdown.

What are your goals for this coming season?
50 total tackles, 10 sacks, and to reach 1st Team All State.

What is your favorite Pro team, any sport?
The Pittsburgh Steelers

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?
The Blind Side, because I like how it’s based off of a true story and I think it’s inspirational.

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

Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like?
My parents work so hard for me and support me in everything I do, I hope to be a positive role model like my Mom and Dad have always been for me.

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

What is your most embarrassing sports moment?
I wasn’t playing for this but, I was refereeing youth flag football for community service and I accidentally blew my whistle midway through a big play. The kid was running for a touchdown and my whistle caused every player to stop and look back at me for a call. When I explained it was an accident, the coaches and parents lining the sidelines weren’t happy and let me know it.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?
Both of my sisters support me in all of my sports and I’m grateful to have them watching me throughout each season.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?
Playing the piano is an activity I enjoy outside of sports, it’s something I’ve known how to do since I was a little kid.

What is your favorite football memory to date?
In the playoffs of my Freshman year, we played in Erie and it snowed several inches during the game. By far the most snow I’ve ever played in, it was freezing but awesome.

What is your favorite play to run?
Crashing down as a D-End and having no responsibility other than getting the QB.

What scares you the most?
Having regrets

What was your favorite gift as a little boy? Why?
I remember getting one of those electric cars that little kids can drive and I was whipping it in the backyard ALL the time.

What restaurant is your go to when you need a big meal?
My house! My Mom calls our kitchen “The Diner” because it’s always open with me around.

Which one? Sheetz or Wawa
