Why do you play football? 

Ever since I was young I just always enjoyed scoring touchdowns, making plays, and even now there is nothing more satisfying than hearing the crowd goes “oooouuuuu” knowing I just made the big hit.

What has been your best memory from football so far? 

Experiencing my first PC/GA day Freshman year.

Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?

Marshawn Lynch definitely because he is just beast mode. I used to want people to call me “Beastmode” when I was on the field because that’s who I felt like I turned into when it’s game time. His dedication to wanting to hit opponents over and over and over again till you didn’t want to hit him anymore.

Who is your biggest fan and why? 

I would say my dad is my biggest fan because when I’m down and out he always pushes me that this isn’t the end of my journey. He is my dad, coach, #1 fan, mentor, and role model.

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

My dad

What is your desired major in college?  


How has COVID-19 affected you?

COVID has affected the way I go to school, walk outside, and play football. I try to stay safe and make sure I don’t bring covid back home because it would take a toll on my dad’s body since he used to have cancer.

Favorite play to run?

I love when Coach Coyle lets me run wild and make plays on the field whether that’s back in coverage or ripping the ball out of the quarterback’s hand.

What is your personal goal for this season?

Make yourself known!

Favorite pre-game meal?

Western omelet with home fries and orange juice.

Sports movie?

The 6th Man, Space Jam, Last Chance U (show).

Sport you’d love to play but can’t?

I wish I knew how to surf. Just feel like those skills will come in handy one day.

Most embarrassing sports moment?

Freshman year JV Football. We were playing against Interboro. I was playing outside linebacker and they ran a toss to my side. I saw the play develop before my eyes and as I’m coming downhill, I got hit on a crackback by a wide receiver who was half my size. Instantly thought my jaw was broken.

What are you looking forward to most this year?

Playing in college. On a new team, new coaches, new uniforms, a stadium, and overly crowded games.

Favorite activities?

Hanging with friends.
