Question: What are your expectations for your senior season?
Answer: I'm expecting a lot of things, like going to the (football) playoffs (for the second year in a row). I think if we work hard, we can go as far as we want to.
Q: What are some of the sports highlights that come to mind during your career?
A: During my sophomore season in basketball, we won the OVAC (Ohio Valley Athletic Conference) championship against Magnolia (New Martinsville, W.Va.). I'm only 5-foot-11, and I had to guard a Division I prospect who was 6-5. I held him to 16 points. That was pretty satisfying.
In football, I was third-team All-Ohio as as junior.
Beating Waterford last year was a highlight. I think I scored five or six touchdowns in that game.
Q: What's your favorite sport?
Q: Do you think you'd like to play (any sport) at the next level?
A: I don't think so. Right now, after graduation, I'm planning to attend Washington State Community College for a year, and then transfer to the University of Pittsburgh to major in chemical engineering.
Q: What's it like being the homecoming king?
A: It was real enjoyable. But my mind was mainly on the football game that night.
Q: Any influences, or people who've had an impact on your life?
A: My oldest brother (Mason) has always pushed me to be the best I can be.
