  1. Who was your favorite athlete(s) growing up? Why?
    “I loved watching Ray Lewis every week growing up. In my opinion, he was one of the best athletes that has ever played football.”
  2. Do you have any pregame rituals?
    “The only pregame ritual I have is listening to a playlist. The music I have on it gets me hyped and ready for the game.”
  3. What does ‘being a leader’ mean to you?
    “Being a leader means being a person that everyone can look up to when the team is up or, most importantly, down. Someone that isn’t scared to step up and take charge.
  4. If the entire team participated in a Summer Slam or Royal Rumble, who would be the last one standing? Why?
    “I would have to say Jarrod McLin. He’s big, fast, strong and I feel like it would be hard to bring him down.”
  5. What’s the best thing about being a student-athlete at CHS?
    “The best thing about being an athlete at CHS is not only being a part of a winning tradition, it’s how the coaches apply football to life. They apply advice for football to your life that you could use for as long as you live.”
  6. Is it difficult to balance sports with school work?
    “It’s hard to go home after practice and sit down to do mountains of homework when all you want to do is sleep.”\
  7. What is the best advice you were ever given?
    “‘Work hard in silence and let your successes be your noise’- my brother
    Blake Socia once told me this and ever since then, I have kept my mouth shut and let my actions and abilities show for themselves.
  8. Where do you draw your inspiration from?
    “I get my inspiration from my mom. She’s always been there for me and has always pushed me to find my limits.
  9. Ideally, would you continue playing sports after high school? If so, how far would you go?
    “The only way that I would continue my football career was if I got a scholarship to play. After my college career though, I feel like that is where my career would end.”
  10. Where do you see yourself in a year?
    “I plan on attending A&M university where I plan on majoring in Biomedical Science. Also with a bit of luck and a lot of hard work, I would like to be on the A&M track team.”
