What is the fondest memory from your playing career at DeSales?
I can’t really pick a fondest memory, I transferred into DeSales my junior year of high school and I can still say till this day it’s one of the best decisions I made in my life.  The family I joined wasn’t just empty words and promises. I’ve gained lifetime friends and memories I’ll never forget.

What was your best game?
Best game was a two point loss to Watterson in ’06 when some kid who hadn’t seen a football on Friday night caught the winning touchdown.  I cried but it was when I realized how much that moment meant to me, how much the school meant to me, and how much my team meant to me and I had only been attending for seven weeks... however I scored a couple touchdowns to put us in the lead but fell short.  I never felt anything more painful and I’d do it again 100 times even if we lost..

Do you still follow DeSales, if yes, how closely?
I follow, I would like to be closer but life happens, but never too far away . I will always do alumni events.
