_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________What is the best part about playing football?
The best part about football is getting to be out under those bright lights with a big crowd being with all my best friends and competing.

What has been your best memory from football so far?
My best memory so far was Sophomore year I was the backup quarterback until our starter got hurt against Shaler, I was thrown into the game down 2 touchdowns and we came back to win.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?
My favorite pro athlete is not a football player but it is Steph Curry, a NBA basketball player, he is my favorite because of his hard work and his desire to be the best to ever do it even though he was never the biggest or the strongest he just proves people wrong.

Is there any specific person you look up to and use as a role model?
My Dad, who is also the head football coach for our high school, is my role model because of his work ethic and his dedication to be the best at anything he does, he is also kind to others and try’s to help whoever is in need.

What would be your desired major in college?
I am going to major in something with business.

Coming off a year with COVID struggles, what do you think this year will be like?
As a team we did very well despite the Covid setbacks so I’m excited to see what we can do with full focus. We will be better!

Favorite play to run?
90 hot dash and go. This is a roll out to the right and the WR fakes a comeback route then keep going and I throw the deep ball.

Favorite pre-game meal?
Nutella peanut butter banana sandwich

Favorite place to eat out?
Longhorn Steakhouse or BJ’s

Favorite sports movie?
Creed!

Pregame music genre to get you pumped up?
Country, but right before the game a little bit of Rap.

Favorite class in school?
Math

Favorite activity you do during the off season?
Hunt and Fish

Other than your home stadium/field, what stadium/field would you rate the best?
I will say Aliquippa because of how historic it is.

Most embarrassing sports moment?
Most embarrassing sports moment is throwing multiple interceptions in one game, or not in football but missing a wide open lay-up on a fast break in basketball.

College Offers… If so, by what schools?
Not for football but I have been talking to several schools for track. No official offers yet.

What are you looking forward to most this year?
Not only making playoffs but going far and doing this year one last time with all my friends before we graduate.
