Favorite sports memory:

My favorite high school sports memory was during my junior football season when we played Wittenberg-Birnamwood. After the first half we were down 14-0 and were not in very high spirits going into the locker room. In the second half, I caught a 68 yard touchdown pass which brought the game to 14-7 after I made the extra point. Then I stripped their running back when we were on defense and ran 40 yards for a touchdown. Our running backs pounded two more touchdowns into the end zone which Wittenberg matched but the difference in the game was at the end of the game when I blocked a punt that went through the back of the end zone for a safety. We won the game 30-28.

Advice to an athlete:

You have to always push yourself to reach your full potential. It may hurt now, but you never know what you could become unless you put in the extra time and effort. My football team's motto this past year was "All In", which meant that you dedicated all of who you were to help the team to win. That is what it takes, everybody giving it 100 percent every day.

Your inspiration:

My older brother was my inspiration. Throughout his high school career, he had always pushed himself to be the best that he could be and never took a day off. Even though he doesn't play organized sports anymore, he has no regrets because he left everything out there. That sort of attitude is what I always wanted to have and when everything was said and done, have no regrets, just like him.
