Bowdoin Commit

Why do you play football?

I play football because no other sport requires the team building and off season training that football demands for success. Every player needs to be on the same page and that leads to great relationships off the field as well.

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

I have no idea. When I’m playing I don’t really hear anything except for my coaching making the calls, or my teammates calling out reads.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?

My grandparents that live in Pittsburgh attend all of my games, and my grandparents in Philly usually call and text after my games.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?

Fishing and Call of Duty because they are two fun and relaxing things you can do with your friends.
