I have grown up in Queen Creek, Arizona, a small town outside of Phoenix. I am the middle child of three in my family, and have been avidly involved in athletics my whole life. As soon as I could hold a football, my mother began teaching me how the game is played. I began playing flag football at the age of 5 and then moved to tackle football at age 8. I played Varsity football in high school beginning in my sophomore year and was a Team Captain both my junior and senior years. I hope to continue to pursue football in college, as well as pursue my academic career in pre-med, with plans to become an orthopedic surgeon one day. I love all sports and have also played basketball and volleyball in high school, ran track and love to wakeboard and snowboard in my free time.
