Player Info

I am blessed through hard work to be an award winning leader as the QB of Lovejoy High School in DFW, Texas. I am fortunate to play QB at one of the elite programs in Texas and for some of the top Texas HS coaches. I have been a 2 year starter throwing for over 5400 yards and 44 TDs in 2 years as the starter. Last year I was MVP Newcomer of the Year in district 15-5A as a Sophomore and followed that up as the 1st Team All-District QB for 15-5A this year. I've been nominated as the DFW Offensive Player of the Week 4 times in 2017, and a state-wide nominee as Mr. Texas Football from Texas Football.com. I enjoy being a strong student athlete with a 3.95 GPA, taking AP courses, and I serve in many leadership roles including the Lovejoy ISD Superintendent's Council and President of the Collin County Young Men's Service League. I love playing football, leading a team, and competing at the highest level. I look forward to getting better and taking my game to the next level.
