  • Intangibles:
    • I'm trying to be the hardest worker I can be with the mindset that there is always someone out there working harder. I live in Grand Rapids, but I will drive over to Detroit on a weekly basis just to train with the best. Also, our school has 6:45am workouts. I wake up even earlier than that to workout by myself before so I can focus on my personal training needs. Then I go to the team workout. The best way to describe my work ethic is that I do not quit on anything, and I am always competing, but in a coachable way.
  • How I play the game:
    • I like to play conservative. As a QB, I like to take what I can get and really drive on the defense even if it means taking short chunks at a time. Sometimes, I like taking shots downfield. Also, I am a good listener and will obey my coach to fit what he wants me to do. My main goal is always to win.
  • Outlook on High School Football and its experiences
    • I really want to leave West Catholic with four state championships. I am halfway there. I hope when I leave that the game will change me as a man because the culture around it is so giving. I want to get out what I put in.
  • Discuss the potential opportunity or the opportunity of playing on the next level
    • I am interested in playing if I was offered a scholarship. I also challenge myself in the classroom with AP and Honors courses, and I am doing well in them. So I am also open to attending a top institution for academics.
