When did you become introduced to the game of football?

I was around the age of six or seven.

What are somethings that football has taught you?

Football has taught me a lot of things; I believe two of the biggest things it has taught me are mental toughness as well as physical toughness. Obviously football is a physical sport but I think it has taught me just as much about mental toughness.

Do you have any role models?

My parents are two of my biggest role models and in sports world its guys like Michael Jordan and Jamal Adams.

Are there any other hobbies you enjoy besides playing football?

I played basketball my first three years of highschool so I enjoy playing basketball as well. I also enjoy hunting and fishing as well.

What made you decide to play defensive back?

I interesting because pretty much my whole life I have played wide receiver and then once my freshman year came around there was a spot that opened up in the secondary. Since I wanted to play I made the transition to defense since I wanted to be out there helping my team win, I am so happy that I did it because I enjoy playing defense more than offense.

What are your goals going into your senior year?

Individually I battled quite a bit of injuries so staying healthy is one of my goals and trying to make all-state, all-district, and all-metro you know all that good stuff. The main goal is to get to the dome because St. Paul’s has never played in a state championship before.
