From first starting to play football to now, I feel my greatest evolution from then to now is my knowledge and vision of the game and how much it has progressed.
My greatest hope for this 2020 season is to be able to play as many games as we can. With how crazy this year is, I just want to be able to ball out with my guys.

With that too this year, our guys have so much talent and we have bonded so much through all of this. We have really became stronger as a team and that’s what I love about our guys this year. It’s like one big family and everyone has your back no matter what happens.
As I wrap up high school this year I plan on going to college somewhere and hopefully have the opportunity to play football while studying to get my degree in forestry or environmental science. I plan to eventually work in the forest service and work with wildland fires.
