Why do you play football?
I feel like football gives me a way to just interact with my teammates and make memories that will last a lifetime. The sport means a lot to me and gives me a chance to do what I love

Who is your favorite sports star and why?
My favorite sports star of all time is Marcus Mariota. I loved watching him play at Oregon especially during his Heisman season and I have tons of Oregon gear to go along with it!

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
Personally my favorite play that I remember the most was catching a touchdown pass against Indiana on a trick play at the end of the game.

What are your goals for this coming season?
This season as a team, we are definitely aiming to make it further in the playoffs that we did last year. There is a lot of competition in Class 4A so it will be tough to do. Personally, my goals for this season are to lead the team to as many wins as possible, be a 1st Team All-State Quarterback again, and Win the Willie Thrower award again as well.

Name one thing that you’d love to do in football that may never happen?
Personally, I would love to win a State Championship for Armstrong my senior year

Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t:
I would love to play soccer if I could. I played it all my life growing up but when football became my focus, I just couldn’t play soccer anymore.

What is your most embarrassing sports moment?
My most embarrassing sports moment was on the last play of the game against Hampton my junior year. I rolled out to the right on a two point conversion to win the game and I made a bad throw to my receiver, who was wide open, and we lost the game.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?
In my free time, I love to fish. Any time that I can get to fish whether it’s in a lake, pond, ocean, or river, I enjoy it as much as I can.

What is your favorite football memory to date?
My favorite football memory to date is winning our first playoff game in school history. We beat Montour at home in a crazy game and coming out on top was a night to remember.

What is your favorite play to run?
Personally my favorite play to run is a Y-Cross concept. Of everything in the playbook I definitely feel the most comfortable with this.

What restaurant is your go to when you need a big meal?
When I need a big meal my go to restaurant is the Villa. They serve a ton of food in every meal and the pasta they have is awesome.

Which one? Sheetz or Wawa

What is your favorite vacation destination?
