Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
To me sports are a part of my life. I am a competitive person and always will be. It doesn’t matter what sport it is, if I’m on a team, just playing a pick up game, or even in gym class I always give it 100 percent. I just like playing the game, no matter what it be.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
My most memorable moment would be making it to where others wish they could be instead of just sitting on the sidelines watching.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
My dad always has and always will be one person who inspires me. I always dream to fill his shoes and even surpass his legacy. He always gives me that boost of confidence to keep me going and he always gives me constructive criticism to keep my feet on the ground and level headed even when I don't want to hear it.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
My challenge with balancing academics and sports is to study more and not just to study plays. When I come home from the gym, to pick up a book and not the remote. To study more so I can make that B+ into an A.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
My plans after high school are to attend Utica College this fall to study my major and to play football.
