Why did you start playing the game? Was it a person who influenced you? If so, who and how did they influence you? I started playing flag football when I was 5 years old. I played 3 years of flag football before starting tackle football. I have played my whole life and love the game. My Dad coached me growing up and is the biggest influence in football for me.
What are some of your personal and team goals this season? At the end of the year, I want to lead the team in receptions, yards and touchdowns. I would love to see my team go deep into the playoffs.
What would your teachers say about you? My teachers would say I am a well-rounded kid and that they enjoy having in their class.
Who is your favorite player and why? One of my favorite players is Steve Smith. He was a smaller shifty receiver that could run all the routes get in and out of breaks and create issues for corners, safeties and linebackers.
Why should a college coach recruit you in the future? I would be a great asset to the team. I am very coachable and have leadership qualities that stand out in the classroom and on the field.
