When did you become introduced to the game of football?

I started playing flag football when I was around five or six years old and I started playing in pads when I was seven or eight years old. I even made it to State in playing Little League Football for my little league team.

What are somethings that football has taught you?

Football has taught me how to be a hard working and to be a responsible person because nothing is given to you it is always earned.

How would you describe your style of play?

I would describe my style of play as aggressive but smart. I definitely love hitting people but the most important thing to me is to be able to play with my teammates.

Who are some of your biggest influences?

My biggest influences are my parents because both of them introduced me to the game of football. My dad has even put in extra work to help me with my game.

Is there an offensive lineman that you would compare yourself to?

Zach Strief before he retired was an offensive lineman that I looked up to. The reason why Zach Strief was someone I looked up to is because he was an awesome player and teammate for the Saints. Zach was a very unselfish who did whatever was need to help his team. I feel like I can relate to him on a personal level.

Do you have any hobbies outside of football that you enjoy?

I enjoy powerlifting; I have made it to State in all three years I have competed. Powerlifting is a hobby and a lifestyle now, which is why I love it.

What is your greatest strength on the football field?

My greatest strength on the football field I would say is being able to communicate with my teammates and building a comradery with my team.

What is an area of your game that you are constantly working on?

I am always trying to work on my speed and footwork because having great speed and footwork is important for offensive lineman. The reason why is because having great speed and fast footwork is important in getting into proper position to make a block not only on strong defensive players but also fast defensive players as well.

What are your goals for your senior year?

My goals for my senior year is to make it to State, make my teammates proud, and be a great leader for all of the underclassmen.
