Why do you play football? 

I have loved the sport since I was a little kid and have grown up playing ball. I love the physical side of the game.

What has been your best memory? 

Hanging around with all the guys, especially the seniors. I’ve made great friendships during the 2021-2022 football season that will last a lifetime.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My grandmother was my biggest fan. She would never miss one of my games whether she was busy or sick battling cancer.

Who is your biggest role model? 

My dad is my biggest role model. He has taught me everything from leadership to hard work and dedication.

What is your desired major in college? 

Telecommunication Engineering.

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

The toughest position to play would be a lineman. The amount of work and beating those guys take to protect me and every other skill position is the most important. There would be no game of football without these guys.

What is your personal goal for this year? 

To grow and learn more about the game of football and dedicate myself to my team and Coach Vroman.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? 

By definition, yes, but in my opinion, no it is not a sandwich.

Sport you’d love to play but can’t? 

I would like to play lacrosse because it is a physical contact sport and it involves a mix of hockey and football.

Most embarrassing sports moment?

When I scored a touchdown during a middle school game and spiked the ball in the endzone over-excitement and got a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty.
