At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

I was first interested in the sport of football at the age of five years old. I was so excited to play. I wanted to play when I was four years old, but my dad didn’t let me. Once I was able to play, me and my dad made sure to maximize the time I got to play football. That included putting football, and school first and having fun later. Football has done so much for me and my family. I will forever cherish the game, and when I’m done playing I will for sure I get into coaching as well.

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?

I feel like I truly stay consistent even though my ears were great in some moments, and tough in some moments. But finding the energy and power to overcome obstacles is special to me.

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

What’s special about our school is that Cooper Kupp set the foundation in the wide receiver room. He’s a great role model and a great person to look up to. And I’ve watched every single one of his clips in our locker room. He’s a real pro.
