Why do you play football? I play football because it is where I don’t have to worry about school or life and I can just be me. And it’s fun!

Other sports you play
Lacrosse – I actually just started this past year, and I started At varsity defensive midfield my first year playing

What has been your best memory? QB – Throwing my first Varsity TD last year against Central Dauphin. Punting – Winning the Punting competition at the Kohl’s Eastern Showcase. Also my first punt in the playoffs last year was 65 yds into a driving wind….it set up a great defensive stand and an eventual score!

Who is your biggest fan and why? My Mom and Dad. They provide so many opportunities for me just so I can succeed in the sport I love.

Who is your biggest role model? My Mom and Dad because of how much they sacrifice for me and help me achieve my goals. I want to retun that to others some day!

What is your desired major in college? Kinesiology or Exercise Physiology/Science

In your opinion where is the toughest place to play? Memorial Field – our student section is the best! But for me Carlisle High School – I don’t know what it is but it might be the grass field or just the atmosphere there.

What is your personal goal for this year?
I have a number of them – but mainly I want to help
My team get to States!

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Nope, It is its own category.

Sport you’d love to play but can’t? I would say Soccer or Baseball, Soccer was one of the sports that I always played for fun growing up but stopped to focus on Football in 8th grade. Baseball is just too time consuming to play, I haven’t played since I was 9.

Most embarrassing sports moment? When I played soccer I once had an own goal. That was really embarrassing!
