Q: Tell us about your high school career and what the recruiting process has been like thus far. 

A: I’ve been playing competitive football since I was 8 years old. As a sophomore I was moved up to varsity and last year started at both WR and OLB. I was invited to attend a few college camps this summer, but most have been shut down by the virus, so I’ve working out six days a week instead.

Q: When did you receive your first offer and what school was it from? How many offers have you received thus far? 

A: I started speaking with college coaches in the winter after my junior season. I’ve had a good number of D3 schools confirm their interest so far and I’m also working on arranging visits, when they possible, with a few D1 schools.

Q: What would you consider to be your biggest accomplishment in your sports career so far?

A: That my three best performances of my junior season came against the three best teams in our conference which has given me the confidence that I can compete with the best players in my area.

A: The importance of being consistent in both performance and effort. How to be a team leader.

A: This unique time has forced every player to evaluate their commitment to their sport. I’ve been focused on gaining strength and improving my athleticism.

Q: What has been one of the most memorable plays of your career so far?

A: Probably having a great day against one my former teammates, including beating him on a long 40-yard pass. He’s an excellent player who transferred to a competing school and I had played with him in youth ball so it was a lot of fun competing against him.
