Why do you play football?
Loved the sport since I can remember. Began excelling at it in the 4th grade. Love the complexity of the sport. Get to play with my identical twin brother, Alek, who is my obvious equal.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?
Cam Heyward, because he is so underrated and a great person off the field.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
Beating Marion Center on the last play of the game in 4th grade. RIP Coach Mike Lloyd for making the correct play call. First game that meant something to me. We made the WPIAL AAAA playoffs for the first time in 7 years I believe this last season.

 Name one thing that you’d love to do in football that may never happen?
I am a lineman, so scoring a TD, obviously.

What are your goals for this coming season?
Obviously we want to make a run in those playoffs this season.

What stadium, HS/college/pro would you love to visit for a game?
Pitt WVU in the Backyard Brawl.

What is your favorite Pro team, any sport?
Pittsburgh Steelers

What game, yours, college or pro, was your favorite game and why?
When Pitt upset Clemson for their only loss in 2017. My own, our upset of Plum last year, the previous season’s conference champ. Biggest win for Indiana in many years.

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?
Miracle. Love the game of hockey as well and the that story of the ultimate underdog.

If your mom and dad are screaming at you from the stands, what is it they usually yell?
My mom is probably yelling at my Dad who is loud in support, loud in critiques, and loud with the refs.

Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like? WHY?
This person isnt really a mentor, but someone that I would like to emulate is Jimmy Morrissey, a walk-on at Pitt who got drafted and plays in the NFL.

Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t:
F1 Racing, but I am too big for the European technology of the vehicles. Maybe a tire guy on the pit crew then.

What is your most embarrassing sports moment?
My brother Alek and I went on the ice with each others skates on and didnt know until we stepped on the ice because we liked different cuts to our blade. Then our Dad had to help us get that straightened out right before the game. The struggle of identical twins is real.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?
My grandparents have never missed a game of football. Pee Wee, Junior High, JV, Varsity. Never missed…

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?
I have started to play Spikeball seriously. It was a struggle at first, but when you start from the bottom, you see improvement every week.

What is your favorite football memory to date?
Making the playoffs last year after a long drought. Best bus ride home from Mars High School ever.

What is your favorite play to run?
Dive Right. That is the only correct answer anyone should have

What scares you the most?
Hornets. I hate insects

Music of choice:
Alternative Rock

What was your favorite gift as a little boy? Why?
Geo-trax train set

What restaurant is your go to when you need a big meal?
There is a Chinese buffet called King Buffet in Indiana that all us lineman love.

Which one? Sheetz or Wawa
Wawa is off-brand Sheetz

Outer Banks, particularly Avon

Do you remember what the first football game you saw was?
2023 Live? Pitt Cincy 2012, I think
