When did you become introduced to the game of football?

I was introduced to the game of football in the 6th grade. I started playing pop warner and from then on football has become a huge part of my life.

What are some life lessons you have learned from playing football?

Football has taught me how to be a team player, learning about different personalities, learning how to be a coachable player, having fun, and machining new friends.

What kind of football player are you?

I am a very coachable football player that will always play to the best of my abilities.

Do you have any role models?

My role models are my father, my older brother, and my next-door neighbor. They have been my role models both on and off the field.

Do you play any other sports?

I have been running track since my freshman year and I have been winning awards since 2017. I ran a 10.6 in the 100-meter dash and a 55.1 in the 400-meter dash.

What is a part of your game that you are trying to improve?

I have been working on trying to catch the football without gloves so that it will help me whenever it rains due how much more important ball security will be.

What are your goals for your senior year?

My ultimate goal is to win a state championship for Patterson High School.
