Why do you play football? 

I’ve been surrounded by football my entire life it’s like second nature to me. But I really love the competition aspect.

What has been your best memory from football so far? 

Sophmore year having my first big varsity game and being awestruck by the lights and crowd.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

Simone Biles, she’s the best and there is no debate about it. She on a level of her own and that’s inspiring.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My dad is probably my biggest fan he’s always there pushing me to be the best I can be. But also there congratulating me when I succeed.

Is there any specific person you look up to and use as a role model?  

I would say, my brother. He goes to Penn State and for me, he’s always been my competition. I look forward to playing with or against him.

What is your desired major in college?  

Political Science.

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

That’s hard to say but I would hope a year of normalcy will return.

Favorite play to run?

Hulk Devil, I start I’m in a five and I do a hard slant across the tackle.

What is your personal goal for this season?

I don’t really like coming up with goals for the season because I don’t like to limit myself so who knows?

Favorite pre-game meal?

Ham sandwiches are a classic can’t go wrong.

Sports movie?

Dodgeball a true underdog story, the funniest and greatest sports movie.

Sport you’d love to play but can’t?

I’ve always wanted to try volleyball.

Most embarrassing sports moment?

It’s a punt I’m off the ball with speed. I could’ve easily blocked it and got nervous and didn’t want a flag and whiffed.

What are you looking forward to most this year?

Graduating.

Favorite activities?

I really like to cook.
