Player Info

I'm a former multisport athlete with a passion for football. I'm a quarterback in football and was a middle infielder in baseball. These positions have helped craft me as an athlete into a leader and a guide. As I look toward the future, I recognize the importance of balancing academic excellence along with a commitment to athletics. My ideal college is somewhere I'll be challenged academically and be an impact player on the team. Finding this combination is more important than any specific location. My goal is to get better every day. I recognize that a significant part of that process is learning from others. I seek opportunities to learn from coaches who have far more experience than I do. I was fortunate enough to attend a camp at IMG. Their QB Coach Nate Costa gave me some great insights and commented, "He is a talented QB, but his commitment to getting better is what sets him apart". In middle school, I was elected by my peers and staff to be the class speaker for graduation. This speaks to my leadership on and off the field. On the field, I was the captain of my football team every year that I played. Off the field, I'm a leader in the classroom - honors in Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Spanish. I also am a recipient of the President's Award and American Legion Award.
