Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?
Coming out of high school I did not have the grades to get into college, so I chose the prep school route for a post graduate year. I suffered a shoulder injury and thought my playing days would be over based on the recruiting basically ending. Thankfully I stayed determined and worked hard to get back on the field, and Husson gave me the opportunity to play.
Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?
Husson is a really special place and has a real family feel to it. Professors, coaches, trainers and other faculty show that they care about your success as well as you as a person. From a football standpoint, our team has a strong brotherhood.

Trail mix or fruit snacks.

60 minutes of battling with your brothers and having each other’s backs. No better feeling than coming out on top. As an offensive lineman, dominating the line of scrimmage is always fun.
