What is your proudest athletic moment? I would have to say my proudest and most memorable moment would be when my team won the toy bowl in seventh grade. It felt good to see all the work we put in get us a championship.

If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? My "go to" song would be Take On Me by A-Ha.

Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? A professional athlete I look up to is LeBron James. I look up to him because of the adversity he has overcome to be the player he is today and it inspires me to keep pushing to be the best I can be.

What is your favorite movie quote? "I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying." -Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption.

How does your faith impact your approach to sports? Faith is a big part of my approach to sports, without God I wouldn't be blessed with the athletic abilities He's given me.

What is your favorite cartoon character? My favorite cartoon character is SpongeBob.

All-time favorite board game? My all-time favorite board game is Clue.

Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? I have an iPhone and my favorite app is Twitter.

What is your favorite local restaurant? My favorite local restaurant is Impellizeri's pizza on Brownsboro road.

What is your favorite reality TV show? My favorite reality TV show is Seinfeld.

What is your greatest fear? The thing I fear most would probably be the idea of being buried alive.

What is your best quality/characteristic? My best quality is probably my ability to put things off until the last minute and find a way get it done, which is both good and bad in a way.

Favorite junk/comfort food? My favorite junk food would be any type of Little Debbie cake.

What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? I would say it's when I'm coming home after a long day of school and sports.

What is your nickname and how did you get it? I really don't have a nickname but a lot of my friends and teammates just call me by my last name.

Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? My favorite place to volunteer is at the downtown soup kitchen.

What is one hidden talent that you possess? One hidden talent I have is that I'm very good at video games.

If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would travel backward because I think it'd be cool to visit my family members when they were growing up.

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? If I could pick one person I'd pick Tom Brady and ask if he actually had anything to do with the deflated footballs.
