Bio: I’ve run cross country and played soccer all four years at DeSales. However, my family will always come first. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and having a good time. My goal this year is to add some banners to our gym.

1. What is your proudest athletic moment? Beating Butler in soccer with 16 seconds left last year.

2. What is your ideal snack/meal before a game? I like to go with the classic PB&J and some type of fruit.

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? “Purple Rain” no doubt.

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? Peyton Siva because of his dedication and hard work

5. What is your favorite movie quote? Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? Faith is a big part of my game while I’m out on the field. Win or lose I know my God will always be there for me.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Taz

8. All time favorite board game? I’d probably have to go with Clue

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? iPhone and SoundCloud

10. What is your favorite local (non chain) restaurant? Bonnie & Clyde’s and Mike Linning’s

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? Survivor

12. What is your greatest fear? Not succeeding and letting my friends and family down

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? Being a leader and having fun

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Sunflower seeds

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? My favorite hour of the day is when practice starts. Running and being on the field gives me a break from whatever is going on in my life.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? My real name is Dominic, but my mom has always called me Nico ever since I was little.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Dare To Care

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can make people feel good

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would choose backwards because I would like to see my Grandma and my friend Patrick at least one more time.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask Lou Gehrig if he had to choose between the short life he lived with baseball or a longer life without baseball which would he choose.
