How has your workout schedule changed during the COVID-19 outbreak?

It hasn’t changed much as people would think. Our team has to social distance while working out a little but it has not changed that much. We are still able to work out effectively. 

What are you working on most during summer drills?

I am trying to improve in every way. Gain weight, get my arm stronger, etc., to be fully ready for my senior year.

You recently committed to play for Air Force. What is it about the academy that drew your attention?

Everything that they offer is really everything that I was looking for. They play high Division I football and are also a great academic school. They set you up for life after football. All of that was really the deciding factor in me committing.

Are you in favor of playing a shortened football season against not playing at all?

Yes, if that is our last option. Of course, I want to play a full season but I would much rather play some games than none at all.

What are your personal goals for the 2020 football season? How will accomplishing those goals help the overall team goals?

I want to lead the team in the best way possible. My goals for myself this year are to have the best possible record on the year. If I do my job to the best of my ability then I think we will be in a good spot. With it being my senior year I just want to have the best year that I can.

Who are some of your biggest influences both on the field and in everyday life?

I would say my parents and grandparents. They all played Division I sports except for my mother, so they know about football and athletics. They are also great role models for me off of the field.

How would you describe your game and also how would you describe your mentality on and off the field?

I would describe how I play as a dual-threat quarterback. I love to throw but also see myself as a threat in the running game. I would say my mentality is basically to put others before yourself. Do what is best for the team and not me individually.

What is one thing that most people don’t know about you?

I enjoy fishing in my free time.
