I was able to watch his young man and his team play twice last season. He is another two-way player, who is on the smaller size but plays like a much bigger one. He can take the ball inside or outside and do so with little difficulty. On defense, he will lay the wood on you and make you think how does someone his size hit like a truck? I am not sure how many college coaches have made their way to Clarksville, Ohio to watch this kid but I will say they could not have walked away without thinking, that kid can help our team.
1- Speed kills especially in football with that in mind was Wyoming the fastest team you have faced?
Wyoming was one of the fastest teams we played along with Waverly.
The offense of line has been the main factor to our backfield’s success. Our line was the fastest it has ever been in a while. I think I can speak for the other backs in saying that we appreciate all the trench work they do every game. None of the backs take credit for the yards or touchdowns, it’s always the line that gets the credit.
No, my workload won’t be any heavier. We have an amazing backfield that is really fast. Due to injuries this past season, Colton Trampler and I both had to make up for our losses in the backfield. I’m really excited for everyone to come back healthy and to show how fast our backfield really is.
Playing football at Massie is a tradition. I remember watching the 2012 and 2013 teams win back to back state titles. You always know that’s the ultimate goal. Since the time that my class stepped on the field, in 3rd grade, that has been the goal. There’s always pressure to perform at the top of your game. I hope we live up to the expectations of Massie football.
I really like playing offense. But I’ll play wherever the coach puts me. I just like running the ball.
The hardest part of the season was not knowing if we were going to play the next game.
I think this team understands that you can never take a game/team for granted. We focus on one play at a time, one game at a time. Hopefully, after a lot of hard work, we will end the year with a state title.
The worst thing about practice is tackle tubs and the turf burns you get every time you do them.

I’ve always been one of the smallest guys on the field, but I don’t care. I never thought being smaller was any different. The advantage of being smaller is that I’m harder to see and harder to catch. I can’t get through the holes faster.
The play I’m hoping the coach calls would be our bread and butter play, it’s classified.
