What has been your best memory from football so far? 

Being the first team in Central Valley History to win a state title.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

Walter Payton and because he was a straight-up animal and he plays my position and has taught me a lot just by watching his film.

What is your desired major in college?  

I’m stuck between three, archeology, marine biology, and sales. 

Coming off a year with COVID struggles, what do you think this year will be like?

I think Central Valley will win another state title and personally, I think I have a lot in store to show this year, I still feel like colleges are sleeping on my ability and I want to show them that I’m the REAL DEAL!

Favorite play to run?

450, it’s a sweep to me and I live just hitting the edge and taking off.

What is your personal goal for this season?

My personal goal is to get 2 thousand yards this season.

Favorite pre-game meal?

Me and my mom before every game get a frappe mocha and a 10 piece chicken nugget meal from McDonald’s.

To win a state title and commit to the college of my choice and take the next step in my life.
