Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:
My sophomore year on a screen play I pancaked their DB.
What are your goals for this coming season?
I want to win a District X championship this upcoming season. Another goal is for myself to be all conference on both sides of the ball.
What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?
I would watch the movie, Warrior, every day, it is about MMA fighting. It shows the unique relationship a family has over time and how after many years apart they still can come together. The movie is based in Pennsylvania, which is always a good thing.
What cartoon character do you think your head coach most resembles.
I think Coach Mac most resembles Mr. Incredible. They both want to help people and do good.
If your mom and dad are screaming at you from the stands, what is it they usually yell?
My dad, Wade, is my o-line coach at Sharon, so I don’t have to imagine what he is yelling, I get to hear it first hand. Sometimes that is good and sometimes that is bad. He is tough but that has made me a better player.
Name one thing that you’d love to do in football that may never happen?
I’d love to catch a pick six. I’m going to hold out hope that it happens this season.
Who is your mentor, the person you want to be like? WHY?
My dad, Wade is my mentor. He has been my football coach since junior high, and he was an O-Line guy so we have the trenches in common. He has always shown me support by taking me to camps, workouts, and being honest with me. He leads by example, and I hope I make him proud my senior year.
Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t:
I’d love to play basketball, but that is during wrestling season. I started wrestling in 7th grade and that has been the best thing to help me with my mental toughness and my footwork.
When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?
I like to play Xbox online with friends. It’s something that I like to do in the evenings after practice is over and homework is done.
What is your favorite football memory to date?
We beat our rival last year during the regular season and that was an exciting game for us. The stands were full and everyone was excited for that win.
What is your favorite play to run?
My favorite play is counter because I get to pull.
Music of choice:
I try to listen to different types of music, but it’s usually hip hop or heavy metal on my AirPods.
What was your favorite gift as a little boy? Why?
My beagle, Ruger, has been my favorite gift I’ve ever received. He is always excited to see me when I get home from school.
What restaurant is your go to when you need a big meal?
Station Square in Youngstown, Ohio is my go to restaurant. They have everything from steaks to pasta, and everything is great!
Which one? Sheetz or Wawa
Sheetz – the mac and cheese bites are good!
What is your favorite vacation destination?
We go to the beach every year, and usually it is either Outer Banks or Myrtle Beach. This year we are going to Ocean City, MD. I like to go to good seafood restaurants on vacation.
