Why do you play football? 

I play football because as a little kid I would watch football games on my tv and told my mom that’s what I wanted to do but she wanted me to wait till I was older. So when I was in fifth grade, that’s when I was ready but they said I would just be a linemen because of how tall I was, but I wanted to wait till Jr. high football so I could be what I wanted to be. Which was to be a Wide Receiver.

What has been your best memory? 

This last season where we were in the first round of playoffs and we were down by a touchdown. It was fourth and short and we ran a short pass play on my side which I caught and then we scored shortly after to win the game.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My mom and dad, they always try to get the best out of me and they are always there for my games and texting me good luck before them. They have always supported my decisions on sports and always will.

Who is your biggest role model? 

My biggest role model is my mom she has been through a lot when I was younger and she has always been here and always will be here for me. She’s taught me a lot and has helped me out so much in my sports career and my life in general if she wasn’t here I wouldn’t be the athlete and person I am today.

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

I would have to say Bellefonte because there stadium is massive and when it gets packed I love how loud it gets.

What is your personal goal for this year? 

To break the record for the most touchdowns in Bald Eagle Area history and make it to states for football.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? 

Yes, because there’s bread in between the dog which makes it a sandwich.

Sport you’d love to play but can’t? 

I would have loved to try wrestling because it’s a very physical sport.

Most embarrassing sports moment?

My most embarrassing moment in sports is when I forgot my jersey multiple times in Jr. High.
