1.What are your favorite things about playing football for West Chester? 

The friendships I have made and the player that West Chester has helped me turn into.

2.What role do you hope to have if you make it into the NFL? 

I hope to make an impact in the red zone and in crucial situations. My ability to catch the football is my best attribute.

3.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

Beast mentality. No one is able to stop me or my team from scoring. 

 4.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player? 

Football is unlike any other sport. The amount of teamwork and discipline needed in order to succeed with 11 players is unrivaled and the reason that I’ve loved this sport for so long. 

5.What is your favorite workout? 

Either running routes with my QB or resistance training. 

6.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why? 

Definitely Rob Gronkowski. That man is an animal during the games and seems like an awesome guy off the field.

7.What are your favorite moments from your football life? 

One of my favorite moments was my DYW 120lb. team winning the Bert Bell championship. Another favorite moment is scoring the first touchdown on my high school’s new turf field. A third is winning the PSAC title for the first time in 47 years with an undefeated West Chester. 

8.What is your favorite route and why?

Favorite route has to be a third down out route. Once that ball is in the air, nothing else matters, and I’m going to be the one coming down with that ball. 

9.What type of energy do you bring onto the football field? 

I bring positivity and play the game as a supportive leader. I keep everyone’s spirits up and bring a little extra fun to the game.

10.What would a team get in a player like you? 

They would receive a talented, highly coachable, and disciplined player that will give 100% max effort till the whistle each and every play. I have full loyalty and total devotion to making the team better any way that I can. 

11.What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season? 

I’m looking to really make a name for myself as a leader on and off the field. 

12.How do you prepare for games?

A lot of stretching and music to hype me and my guys up and get me in the zone.  We’re about to go to war. 

Dan Neuhaus also wanted to let everyone know this about him:

“There is a fine line between cocky and confidence!  I ride that line but always side on confidence.  Cocky will get you beat. Confidence will always come down with the ball on 4th and goal!”
