Why do you play football? 

It’s the ultimate team sport and I love competing with my teammates.

What has been your best memory from football so far? 

Having fun in the locker room with my teammates.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

Julian Edelman because nothing was given to him. He had to earn everything.  He was not highly recruited coming out of high school and turned into one of the best players in the league.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

My mother because she has always helped me throughout my life.

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

My grandfather – He played football at Maryland.  He is a great person with great advice. I hope to be like him when I am older.

What is your desired major in college?  

Something in math or science

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

I am hopeful the season will be back to normal since people can get vaccinated.

Favorite play to run?

When I am in the wildcat.

What is your personal goal for this season?

To win Penn Trafford’s first WPIAL Championship.

Chicken Parmesan.

Sports movie?

Sport you’d love to play but can’t?


Most embarrassing sports moment?

Scoring on the wrong hoop in basketball when I was young.

What are you looking forward to most this year?

I am looking forward to Game #1 at Norwin and moving on week by week.
