What made you want to play football/come to Salisbury?

“The success of the football program, the high academics, and the location of the school. I wanted to go to school outside of from New Jersey, my home state.”

 

What has been your favorite moment as part of SU football while here at Salisbury, and why?

“My favorite moment while playing football here is when we beat Wesley on their home field when they were ranked in the top 5 nationally. That was our first victory over them in over ten years, and it was an amazing feeling.”

 

Is there any particular reason you play as a super back? Have you always been at the position?

“I originally came to Salisbury to play tight end, but in the spring of my freshmen year, due to injuries and people graduating, I was moved over to super back and have been there ever since.”

 

What are your goals both individually and as a team for this season?

“Individually, I would like to finish my final season of football healthy and with more yards than I had last season. As a team, I would like to win the NJAC and make a run in the playoffs.”

 

What is your dream during your senior season here at SU, and why?

“My dream is to win out the conference, get my second championship ring, and be able to compete for the National Championship.”

 

What is your favorite amenity of the new Sea Gull Stadium, and what was your initial reaction your first time inside?

“My favorite thing about the stadium is the location. I enjoy being able to hangout in the amazing locker room with the guys before practice and not have to worry about a long walk from campus to the field in full gear. When I first saw the locker room, I was amazed by the size of the lockers, I felt like I was part of a big D1 program.”

 

What is your favorite part of campus life at Salisbury, and why?

“My favorite part about campus life is eating at Commons with the team. We always have a good time together and there is never a dull moment.”

 

What are your hobbies and interests off the gridiron?

“Off of the field I spend most of my time watching TV or playing video games. It allows you to relax and not be so stressed about school and football.”

 

Where is your favorite place to go for a meal or snack on or off-campus? Favorite food?

“My favorite place to go for a meal would have to be Chipotle. I always have it as a pregame meal the night before a game. Overall, my favorite food would have to be buffalo wings though.”
