How long have you been playing for the C.W. Post football team?
I have been playing for C.W. Post for four years now.
Why did you choose Post?
I decided to come here because of the location, the education, and the success of the football team.
How do you feel about Post now?
I have grown to love Post and appreciate it.
How is campus life here at Post?
Campus life is great; I have met great people on and off the football team to make it a good experience.
What lesson(s) will you take from Post?
Take advantage of opportunities.
What is the best memory you have with the team?
N.W.B and the history the football team is making now with being the first New York team to win the P.S.A.C. title.
How do you feel Post has prepared you for your future?
Post taught me how to be responsible, punctual, and accountable.
What do you want to do after you graduate from Post?
Hopefully, [I will] still playing football, but if that doesn’t work out, I’ll look into maybe being on the radio.
What will you miss the most from Post?
N.W.B., not paying bills, the football team, living life, and having fun… just everything associated with college.
You are also the Circulation Manger for the Pioneer. How has holding this position benefitted you?
It has benefitted me in more ways than one. It is hard for me to hold a job during the season, so having this allows me to have some pocket money after the semester, and it’s great on my resume, especially having someone like Professor Levin behind you is always good.
