What do you like most about your sport: The thing I like the most about football is when you break one, maybe two tackles and run into the end zone for a touchdown.
How long have you been playing your sport and how did you get started: This is my first year ever playing football. Last year everyone was trying to get me to play but my mom wasn’t convinced. This year with help from some of my teammates, I was able to convince her to let me play.
Pregame ritual: I listen to music to focus and once it gets closer to game time I say a prayer, look into the stands for my parents and get into the huddle.
Most memorable sports moment: My most memorable sports moments would have to be my first-ever touchdown. I broke two tackles and ran for 40 yards.
If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be and why: I would be myself. I wouldn’t change anything. I don’t see a reason to be anyone else when everything is going the right way in my life.
Something most people don’t know about you: Most people don’t know that my mom used to own a dance studio and would make me participate in the dances her studio would have. Let’s just say it’s a good thing I’m good at sports.
How would you spend $1 million: I would spend the money by paying for my academics and then save what is left for necessities.
Where would you go if you could travel anywhere in the world: If I could travel anywhere in the world I would travel to Washington. I know it sounds lame but I absolutely love it there.
If you had an extra hour every day, how would you spend it: I would spend it with my parents just spending time with each other before I go off to college.
What superpower do you wish you had: The superpower I wish I had would have to be the ability to heal anything and everything 100 percent including myself.
