Age: 17. It’s my birthday (today).
Other sports you play: Track and field. I’m a sprinter, 100, 200 and 400.
Athletes you admire: Saquon Barkley from Penn State because he’s just so good, and Michael Vick because he is so elusive.
Sports team you follow: Philadelphia Eagles.
Any superstitions or rituals on game day? I really don’t have any. I just get into the routine of my day.
Most famous athlete you’ve met. I’ve met most of the players from Penn State because I’ve been down there for the games, and I’ve been to their camps.
Three people you’d like to have dinner with. My grandfather Wayne Miller, my aunt Lynn Pacheco and Joby Fawcett.
Was there a biggest play or turning point in the game in your mind? It might have been Jaden Duplessis interception, which led to the tying score in the fourth quarter. It’s all a blur. I just know we won.
What’s the best lesson you’ve ever learned through sports? Always trust your family. Everyone there, I know they are all my brothers. I know I can talk to them about anything. Just like I can go home and talk to my actual family.
What’s the biggest improvement you’ve seen in any other player on the team from last year to this year? I can’t single out just one player, but probably our D-backs and wide receivers. We lost a lot of talent last year. They’ve made huge steps.
After high school, what are your plans, and how does track or football figure into those plans? I’m planning to run track and field in college. I don’t really have any ideas yet. I’m thinking Shippensburg University. I want to go for computer science
