Why do you play football?

I play football because I love the feeling of fighting beside a group of guys that you would put yourself on the line for all to reach the same goal of being the best that you can be, and that facts that the whole game is like a machine if one person or one part is not doing their part it won’t work.

Who is your favorite sports star and WHY?

My favorite sports star is Josh Allen (bills) because of his story and how driven he was when he wasn’t being recruited, he gives his all for everything he does and he is an outstanding athlete.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:

My favorite play happened in the 2021-2022 season when we played West Mifflin, we were in the fourth quarter down by one and needed a kick to win, our kicker absolutely drilled it and I just remember all of us going nuts and some funny moments happening though out the whole clip when we watched it back.

What was last years season like for you?

I started off kind of rough they were really only practicing me one way and in our first game out starting nose guard got injured so I had to play both ways the rest of the game which I was not prepared for but it only made me better for the weeks to come as we steam rolled teams in back to back weeks and then sadly my season took a turn for the worst and I got injured in the 5th game of the season and had to miss the rest of the season.
