Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
I enjoy all the commitment that a sport involves. Also the brotherhood and relationships a team develops.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
Two years ago, my first varsity game, our first possession on offense when I ran an 80-yard touchdown.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
My grandfather. He has always inspired me to push as hard as I can. Never give up, and win or lose as a man.

The greatest challenge is homework. It takes commitment to go home after a hard practice and have to do more school.

My plans are to either go to college at Utica or Baldwin Wallace in Ohio to play football and study physical therapy.
