Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?

• When I wasn’t able to go to Shepherd University due to not being able to afford the tuition I couldn’t play football for a year after being named the only freshman DLineman to the traveling team. But I never stoped working out and found my passion again playing at Rowan University.

Room, desk and car – which do you clean first?

If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?

• I would choose my family member because even though I’d be sad that three people lost their lives I wouldn’t be able to live with myself knowing that I choose them over family.

If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?

• The Mandalorian, because he came from nothing and his new clan accepted him and he became one of the greatest shooters/bounty hunters in the galaxy. 

Tell me about your biggest adversity in life and how you’ve dealt with or overcome it?

• When I finished Highschool at Western Branch I helped my mom out and started working even if it meant walking in hour to and from work in my bad neighborhood in all hours of the night. But instead of crying I stoped and I started running everyday until I convinced my whole family that I should play Juco football in New Jersey.
