I started football in the 1st grade. I played with the Johnny Bright Falcons.

I would have to say my mom. In raising me, she has always taught me to do the right thing and be a leader.

I will probably major in business management or investment banking. I guess because both fields intrigue me.

I have gotten a few letters from smaller schools. I am more focused on my education as of now

I prefer TE. When I am on the line, I have the option to be a receiver or block for our running game.


LAFM: what makes your school special outside of football?

The community of friends I have are the same sense Pre-K, and I just really enjoy everybody who is a part of this school.
