How long have you been playing for the C.W. Post football team?
I have had the unique opportunity to spend six years on the football team at C.W. Post due to injuries and redshirting.
What made you choose Post?
After suffering a serious leg injury, Post was the only place that still believed I could play.
How do you feel about Post now?
I love C.W. Post. I consider this place my home.
What lesson(s) will you take from Post?
Student athletes are remarkable people, and being part of the Pioneer family is truly something special. People who do not wear the “P” will never understand.
What is the best memory you have with the team?
Upsetting Bloomsburg, which was the number-two team in the nation, earlier this season during a blizzard in the middle of October.
How do you feel Post has prepared you for your future?
Playing football at Post is preparation for life; you come in a boy and leave a man.
What do you want to do after you graduate from Post?
I love athletics; I would like to pursue a career being around athletes.
How does it feel to have won the PSAC East title?
It feels great to finally have a new picture going up on the wall of champions outside our locker room, especially coming back from a 0-3 start this season.
What will you miss the most from Post?
I will miss all of the brothers that I have made throughout the years.
