Position (s): OL
Height and Weight: Height - 6'4" Weight - 265
First Game Started: Game 1 of my Sophomore year at Warren Fitzgerald.
#1 Most Memorable Game: Playing Hazel Park in the playoffs on their home field. We had lost to Hazel Park in week 2 of the regular season and ended up playing them again in the first round of the playoffs. We won the game 59-58 after being down by 18 at one point in the second half. After the game the crowd rushed the field and we shocked a lot of people winning that game.
Pre-game Traditions: We have chapel before each game for whoever on the team wants to come, after that we eat as a team and then I usually just listen to music and get ready for the game.
Post-game Traditions: Most of the guys on the team always meet up at a local restaurant after a win or loss to talk about the game get some food.
Athlete you try building your game around: My favorite tackle in the NFL is Jake Long and he is always getting better so I look up to him for that.

The D - Zone - What have you enjoyed the most while visiting the campus?

The D - Zone - What do the Bowling Green State University coaches, like about the way you play?

The D - Zone - Since Bowling Green State University isn't far from the border of Michigan, did the close distance effect your decision?
