Why do you play football?

I love the team aspect of football. I also wrestle which is more of an individual sport, but enjoy being part of a team and working towards our goals.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?

Aaron Donald. He’s a WPIAL guy and one of the best D lineman in recent history. But he also proves that players who might not fit the standard size expectations can still excel at all levels.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:

I had a forced fumble in our final game last season that helped to spark a come from behind 4th quarter win.

What game, yours, college or pro, was your favorite game and why?

My dad took me to a Steeler game a few years ago that we won in overtime. It was very exciting and it’s cool when tens of thousands of fans are all leaving after such a great win.

What is your favorite Pro team, any sport?

Pittsburgh Steelers

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?

Remember the Titans. I’ve always liked the message of unity, teamwork, and respect.

What cartoon character do you think your head coach most resembles.-

I respectfully choose to not answer this question.

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

My Mom yells “Don’t get hurt”

Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like?

My Great-Grandfather Stanley Bozovich. He played college football in the 50’s and went on to serve his country in the Marines. He later became a successful businessman while raising a large wonderful family.

Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t:

Basketball. Since I’ve wrestled since 1st grade I’ve never played basketball for Trinity and wish I tried to do both.

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

My grandfather, Paul Brophy, who has been to nearly every game, match, our tournament I’ve ever had.

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

Gaming. It allows me to relax and spend time with my friends outside of sports.

What is your favorite football memory to date?

Singing the Alma Mater with my teammates, cheerleaders, band, and the student section after a victory.

What is your favorite play to run?

Any defensive stunt that’s going to clear a path to the Quarterback
