    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    I like playing the sport and when I am the best at it, whether it be for that day or in a tournament. There’s nothing better than walking out of a bowling alley knowing you just won the whole tournament.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    When I scored two upper 90 soccer goals in the second half of our game vs. Mohawk and was the top play that Monday for WKTV’s Top 6 Plays at 6.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
    It would have to be my brother, Ryan. He has always given me confidence when I need it the most, he has bowled in all the tournaments that I have and has always set a high standard for me to reach or get past, and he is always there for me when I need someone to look to or for an answer on the lanes. I couldn’t ask for a better brother.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    Just doing homework and trying to work 25 hours a week while I’m concentrating on my sports.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    Most likely, I will be attending Herkimer County Community College to team up and bowl with my brother, Ryan.
