What’s your favorite memory from football? Why?

There wasn’t really a specific memory, but every day just being around my teammates was special. I cherish every moment I spent with them my last year.

What have you learned from football?

There’s honestly so much I learned from football. The sport itself has so many lessons you learn and only if you played you would understand. In no other sport do you get knocked down every play and are expected to get back up. It’s taught me so much that I can’t even express all the life lessons.

What advice do you have for people who want to join the team?

It’s a lot of hard work, but, in the end, it’s really worth it. The memories and bond you create are amazing, and you will not experience anything else like Friday night lights.
