1- How crazy do you expect the crowd to be for the first home game?

I think the crowd is going to be wild. It was definitely weird making a play and not hearing nobody really. This year the stadium is definitely going to be packed for that game plus theirs no better way to come back from such a weird season than playing at home vs. Nelsonville. I’m excited about it.

 

2- Beating Nelsonville York week one is how important for this team?

Beating Nelsonville is very important to our team just like every other game. To be undefeated you have to go 1-0 every week. It’s just a good way to start the season off. Last year somethings happened during the second half that made the game a lot closer but I don’t like excuses, that second half will be different this year that’s for sure.

 

3- Is difficult staying focused when you guys are blowing so many teams out?

No, not really we plan to give up the littlest amount of yards and make the fewest mistakes. Every team we play whether we blow them out or not we like to stay focused on the game and work on things.

 

4- What goals have you set personally for yourself this season?

My offseason/summer goals are to run a 4.4 40 yard dash. Go to many camps, learn and perform. With my workouts, if it’s a team or with my personal trainers I want to improve on my route running, strength, and speed. offensive personal goals this season is to have 75-100 targets, 1,500+ yards, less than 3 drops, and 15+ touchdowns. Defensive I want 100+ solo tackles, and 150+ total tackles, and 3 ints. As a team, we want to go 10-0 and win the State Championship. I want to get the Offensive and Defensive player of the year in our conference, offensive player of the year in our district, and player of the year in Ohio. By the end of the season, I want to get more D1 looks and get my first offer. But I’m more worried about our team and putting in the work right now so we can perform at a high level during the season.

 

5- Who is the one team you never want to lose to?

One team I never want to lose to is Nelsonville for sure. Like I said earlier to go 10-0 you have to go 1-0 every week. It’s also nice to beat your rival.

 

6-What other sports if any do you play?

I play basketball and baseball.

 

7-What is the number one thing as a player you need to improve on?

one thing as a player that I need to work on is my speed but that will come, but definitely, my route running such as my snap down and my feet work. 

 

8-What defeat still bothers you to this day?

One defeat that still bothers me to this day and even motivates me to work harder is the loss to Springfield in the second round of my sophomore year. We were the favorite to win the State Championship that year just coming off our state runner-up season. That game still gets to me because I say it was my fault we lost the game. I got switched to corner that week and on the second drive, I was out there, and later on, in the game, they threw to my guy most of the time. Then it was a 4th &9 if they don’t get it we win the game. I was a linebacker at the time and right before the snap, the inside backer said to watch for the hook and ladder. The play was run, it was the hook and ladder and I read it perfectly, as the wide receiver caught it and pitched it I was certain I was going to either catch it or knock it out of bounds. Instead, the ball tipped the tip of my finger, the kid caught it and ran for 50 yards. Then they threw a jump ball and caught it on me. To this day before games, I watch that game. I remember the next day I walked in the weight room and wrote upon the whiteboard 21-20 and I would look at that before every set and made myself do 1 extra rep. Definitely the worse defeat I’ve experienced.

 

9- What is your favorite type of music?

My favorite music is country for sure. Some rock and rap have been mixed into the playlist but I’ve always liked country.

 

10- What is your favorite current TV show?

My favorite current tv show has to be QB1 for sure. Love seeing what the guys do and how they play, the work they put in, and how they are outside of the game. I just feel like I can relate so much to it.
