Our last game against River Oaks was probably my best game. I had over 20 tackles, 89 yards receiving, and one TD.

 

LAFM: Who is your favorite football player of all time?

Mike Alstott- I like how he used to run the ball. He never did anything special, but he always got the job done.

I was 6 when I started playing flag football at the local YMCA.

 

LAFM: Do you have any family members or friends that have had a big influence on you as you play football?

My dad has always been there for me and has just always pushed me to be a better player.

 

LAFM: If football does not work out for you, what do you see yourself doing? Have you thought of a major in college?

I would like to be a game warden. I love hunting and being in the woods.

 

LAFM: Are there any schools that are recruiting you? Do you have any favorites?

Southern Arkansas and Ouachita Baptist are recruiting me. Southern Arkansas is my favorite so far. The school is close to home, and I like the atmosphere and everything they do there.

 

LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for? What is your favorite positions and why?

LB, I like to make stops on defense because that’s what wins games.

LAFM:  What makes your team special?

We have a lot of seniors who all love each other and play for one another.

 

LAFM: Outside of football, what makes your school special?

It is probably one of the toughest schools in the area. If you are looking for a school to prepare you for college, then Glenbrook is definitely the right place.
