I think the parts that I’ve gotten better at since the beginning of my high school career is that I can understand the game more, like the blitzes and also when I’m on offense and watching the motions of the offense and the formations.

My greatest hope for this seasons is to actually have a season, but my main goal is to ball out this year and get a few more offers, maybe even some more D1 offers.

I think my team has so much more potential than last year because everyone who played last year is returning except for a few. I think that’s really gonna benefit us.

Lastly, my future goals is to honestly just get a degree, find a good job that I’ll enjoy and settle down. That’s pretty much it.
