Why do you play football ?
Because I have fun playing the sport, there’s no better feeling then running into the end zone or throwing a touchdown on a Friday night in front of all those people.

Who is your favorite sports star and WHY ?
I would have to say Trace McSorely, not only was he a superstar, but he had heart and that’s something that is better then being a superstar. I still remember when I was really young and they played in the Citrus Bowl, he believed that he tore something but refused to come out of the game.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most ? Explain:
Has to be from week five against Panther Valley, when I got out of 4 tackles and threw a touchdown pass.

I would have to say Jake Schieb from Tri-Valley.

What stadium, HS/college/pro would you love to visit for a game ?
I would have to say the Chiefs, GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, just to hear how loud it is there.

What is your favorite Pro team, any sport ?
The New York Giants, just because of Saquon Barkley .

What game, yours, college or pro, was your favorite game you watched and why ?
Penn State vs Ohio State when Penn State blocked the field goal and took it back for a touchdown. I was at the game, definitely the best game I’ve seen.

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why ?
Benchwarmers, it has to be the funniest sports movie I have ever watched.
