Why do you play football?
My family. As a young kid I was told stories about the greats in my family that played the game before me, and I knew I had to keep the legacy alive.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?
Definitely Jalen Ramsey. I love how he plays the game.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
My first varsity touchdown against hopewell week 0 of last year. I remember this play so vividly it was an inside zone there was a huge hole I hit it and just ran 30 yards into the endzone. I actually cramped at the 10 yard line got the ball knocked out and caught it on my leg before it hit the ground without even thinking of it. It was a great feeling but at the same time I was in so much pain on the ground in the endzone with cramps in both of my calves. (Sorry if that was too long)

What are your goals for this coming season?
I definitely want to get All State honors and All WPIAL for the 2nd year in a row. Along with that, I want to get my team back to heinz and win this time. Getting mercy ruled at heinz lit this fire inside me that I’ve never seen. I use it as motivation every time I put work in

What is your favorite Pro team, any sport?
The san francisco 49ers

What game, yours, college or pro, was your favorite game and why?
Blackhawk. Week 2 of my Junior Season. What a game man, going into there was a lot of hype. Me and Lorenzo Jenkins who later committed to PITT were featured on rivals Pa Player Matchup of the week, because of that there was a lot of talk and eyes watching. To me this was my breakout game I only got to guard Jenkins a few times though I was mostly on Carson Heckathorn who is now at Slippery Rock. We went at it all game it was definitely a test he’s a big body at 6’4 210. In my opinion I won the matchup overall with 10 targets and only 3 catches let up for 29 yards against two 6’4 receivers. It was a very close game the whole time although I think it would’ve been different if our starting QB didn’t get hurt. In the end we came out on top after a Blackhawk missed fg to win the came.

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?
Definitely Remember the Titans. It’s such a great movie with a great story behind it. It makes it even better because it is based off real events

What cartoon character do you think your head coach most resembles.
That’s a hard one Coach O’Shea is a very unique person

Name one thing that you’d love to do in football that may never happen?
I’d love to throw a touchdown pass

Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like? WHY?
My dad. But I want to be better than him that’s always what should always be like

Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t:
Basketball. I love watching it but I suck at it

What is your most embarrassing sports moment?
Probably not strapping up in camp tight enough thinking I was cool and ended up getting my helmet knocked off.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?
My grandad was definitely my biggest fan. I miss him so much man he always wanted to know how everything was going in my career. Always was at every game he could make it to and he always gave me tips to improve my game

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?
Video Games, it’s not even just to play the game anymore I just get on to talk to my old friends from gateway in my opinion it’s just another way of hanging out with your friends just virtually.
