At what age did you know you wanted to be a professional football player?
I knew I wanted to play football at a high level when I was very young. Probably around age 12. But I seriously considered and dreamed of playing professionally once I began playing at Xavier University.
Who discovered you? (as a football player)
My parents discovered that I liked playing football at age 4. But when I began playing competitively, my amateur club coach helped me get recruited to play at the highest level in college football in America.
What is a game you played in, you will never forget? And why?
I will never forget playing in our league’s championship game versus Georgetown and winning. Our team went from winning only 3 games my first year, to winning the league in my last year.
What is your secret talent?
My secret talent is kicking for my high school American football team.
Who is your football idol and which question would you ask your idol if you had the opportunity?
My football idol is Lionel Messi and I would ask him how he is still so effective even when being fouled and given special attention.
