What is the fondest memory from your playing career at DeSales?
My fondest memory playing at DeSales was our playoff run my senior year in 1996. We really started to come together as the season went on in '96 and were playing very well as we entered the playoffs. We made a great run to the state finals. Although we lost to Cleveland Benedictine in the finals, it was a great run!
What was your best game?
My best game was probably against Kettering Alter my senior year in 96. I had 12 or 13 tackles, several for a loss, from my defensive end position. On offense, at Center, we were able to get the running game going and dominate the line of scrimmage.
What made playing for DeSales special?
Playing at DeSales was special because of the guys that I played with and the coaching staff that we had. We were a very close knit group. The coaches instilled in us personal responsibility. They taught us to own what we were responsible for because the guy next to you was counting on you. We bought into this and that is what made us successful both on and off the field.
Do you still follow the Stallions, and if so, how closely?
Yes, I try to make it to a few games each year. I also follow the stallions on pouring purple. I am still good friends with coach Wiggins and check in with him for updates on the teams progress.
