Why do you play football ? It allows me to express a competitive side of myself that isn’t possible in any other sport.
What has been your best football memory ? I have too many to count, but one of the first that come to mind is the feeling I had during my first varsity start at linebacker against Tunkhannok.
Who is your biggest fan and why ? My Uncle Frank who passed a year ago. He would always call me his hero and he would look forward to every game I played in like a child waiting to open presents on Christmas.
Who is your role model and why ? I don’t have just one role model, I look up to every person in my family who has helped raise me and I try to take characteristics from them to be the best version of me I can be.
What is your desired major in college ? Currently I have not decided on what I’d like to major in.
In your opinion, where is the toughest place to play ? Western Wayne has to be one of the toughest places to play because of their student section. They’re loud and passionate which is great for the home team, but can definitely get into away teams players heads.
What is your personal goal for this year ? To become an All-Region Linebacker.
Other than cheese, what is your favorite pizza topping ? Buffalo chicken 100%, I love spicy food so if I’m able to put it on my pizza, I never hesitate.
Which do you prefer, Bone-in, or Bone-out wings ? Bone in! Wings have been my favorite food since I was 8, but I never eat wings without the bone.
What would be your best dish if and when you were to cook a meal ? I think my breaded wings are my best recipe, I don’t cook them often but when I do they’re always a family favorite.
Most embarrassing sports moment ? Definitely my lack of skill at catching the football during middle school, it’s a thing my friends still like to joke about to this day.
Sport you’d love to play but can’t ? I’d love to go back to wrestling. I did it for 6 years but in the final 2, I began to have knee issues so I had to discontinue my wrestling career.
What is one thing you’ve learned from football that you’d like to pass on to future players… The time you have with high school football flies by. Embrace every game you get to a part of and play it like it’s your last.
