Why do you play football? I have been playing football my entire life. It runs deep in my family.  My cousins and brothers have all played. My grandfather and uncles are CYO football coaches, so I have never known anything different. Being able to play means so much to me. I love everything about this game. The hard work you have to put in, playing under the lights, standing with your teammates, I love all of it.

What is your GPA? 5.22 (All honors & AP courses)

What schools have offered or expressed interest in you? I’m currently having conversations with different schools and very much looking forward to some upcoming prospect camps this summer.

What do you plan on majoring in upon enrolling in college? I either want to go pre-med and become a doctor, or I want to go to law school.

Favorite class in school? ELA

Favorite athlete of all time and why? My favorite athlete of all time is Bryce Harper. I’m a huge Philly sports fan, especially the Phillies. Everything he has done for this team, bringing us back to the playoffs and the World Series. I can’t wait to see what he does for us for the rest of his contract.

Favorite moment thus far of your HS career? My first high school win against Archbishop Carroll High School. The final score was 14-12.

What was the 2022 season like for you? The 2022 season was a big learning experience for me and the team. We aren’t satisfied with the way we played last season, and we’re hungry this year.

2023 individual and team goals? As a team, I know we can improve from last year and I believe that we have the talent to win a PCL Championship.

All-time Favorite football game to watch (College, HS, Pros)? Penn State vs Ohio State in 2016. Ohio State was ranked #2 in the country, Penn State went in and upset them. I get chills every time I watch that blocked field goal.

Favorite meal? Spaghetti & Meatballs

Favorite play to run and why? As an offensive lineman, my favorite plays have to be inside zone. I love running the ball down the other team’s throat.

Outside of sports, what are your hobbies? I like to hang out with friends, work out, and watch movies.

What scares you the most? I fear God. God comes first in my life.

Most inspirational person in your life? The most inspirational people in my life are my parents. They both work hard to give me and my siblings an incredible life. I love them.

What Pregame Music do you listen to as you prepare for games? I listen to “Can’t fight City Halloween” from Batman before every game. No words, just gets me locked in.

Best teammate and why? My best teammate was Joey Gillin. He was a senior this past season and played right tackle for us. He was a great leader to everyone and a great friend to me.

Did you play little league football, if so what organization? I played for St. Francis of Assisi in Springfield from flag football in 3rd and 4th grade to pads from 5th to 8th grade.

What is something folks should know about Cardinal O’Hara the school, the football players & coaches? Our school and our coaches genuinely care about the students and athletes.  Our academic program is rigorous, our catholic faith is a part of all that we do.  Our coaches go above and beyond every day to push us to be the best athletes we can be.  They have only been here one year and the changes in the program are remarkable. I feel really lucky to be here.

Cheesesteaks or Hoagies? And what restaurant/store has the best sandwich? Hoagies from Slacks in Springfield.
