Why do you play football?
I’ve played football since I was little and I have loved it since I started. Now it gives me the chance to have fun and do what I love at the same time.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?
T.J Watt because no matter what he goes out and plays like a beast.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
We played Conemaugh Valley and it was supposed to be a very close game, but we were winning by a lot. I pulled on a sweep play and i got a really nice pancake and was so excited. When we watched film the next week, my coach said “Now this is the definition of a pancake block.”

What are your goals for this coming season?
Get lots of pancakes and be one of the top leaders for tackles.
