I’m a three sport athlete who plays football, basketball, and track. I love to compete and I’m a team guy.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?

My favorite sports would have to be Lebron. I like what he’s done for the game of basketball and how he is a good role model for a lot of people.

Why do you play football?

I play football because of the love of the game I have and for my community. I feel like there’s nothing better than going out there on Friday nights and playing in front of your community.

Is there anyone in your family, besides your parents, you could consider your biggest fan? Who, Why?

I would say my little brother Chucky because he always knows my stats after the games and is always telling me what I did good and bad after games.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go to activity and why?

My favorite activity would have to be fishing. I like fishing because of how relaxing it is and how fun it can be when catching fish.
