Why did you choose Anna Maria College?  

I chose Anna Maria College because I wanted to focus on my athletics, and I enjoyed the college’s close-knit community feel. It’s a small school so everyone – students, faculty, coaches – knows you and everyone supports you here. 

What are some of your favorite memories?  

My favorite memories were during my freshman year and the year the football team won our conference championship. 

What was your greatest accomplishment during your four years?

Winning the championship for the school, making my own clothing line, and getting a Name, Image, Likeness deal. 

What will you miss the most about Anna Maria?  

I will miss football family the most. I feel like I grew with the team. 

What are your plans for the future? 

My plans for the future include pursuing my career in football, becoming a professional football player, and building my clothing line to something bigger than what it is today. Hopefully you’ll see me on your tv one day! 

Any advice for the Class of 2027?  

Stay focused, stay on top of your work, don’t get left behind.
