Q: How has your recent diagnosis of cancer affected your involvement in sports?

A: “It has affected it a ton. I found out that I had cancer right after I had played in a lacrosse tournament. Now it has taken away my whole winter season and a couple of games from my spring season.”

Q: Who is your biggest role model, and why?

A: “My role model is my dad. He always works really hard, but he also finds time to hang out with his family.”

Q: Where do you hopefully see yourself in 10 years?

A: “I don’t fully know, but maybe teaching, or doing something that would [help] kids our age. Something that would impact them [in a good way].”

Q: What is your dream college?

A: “I don’t really have a dream college yet, but it would be super cool to go D1 or even D2 for lacrosse.”

Q: What is your biggest goal for your high school career?

A: “Just to get good grades, enjoy high school and make friends that I’ll remember and still be friends with in 20 years.”

Q: Who is your favorite musician, and why?

A: “Baby Smooth because he has a good rhythm. He’s also an underground rapper, so his music isn’t very overplayed.”

Q: What is one thing you would tell incoming freshmen?

A: “Do your work; it’s not cool to always mess around. Everyone has matured more in high school. Definitely join a sport, and go to the games; go to school dances, and make sure to put yourself out there. There’s always a friend group out there for you.”

Q: What is your favorite sports team and player?

A: “My favorite team is the Pittsburgh Steelers; my favorite player is Najee Harris. I also love Hobart lacrosse because they are super fun to watch. I also know one of the coaches, so it’s super fun to be able to watch him coach at such a high level.”
