I had a some really great teachers in high school, especially in history. I always really liked History so that’s why I got into the history aspect of it, and with Education, I feel like I can impact a lot of people. I’ve been influential on others my whole life and that’s something I hope to carry over into my career.
I’d love to be an athletic director at a high school or a college. I’d love to move down to Texas at some point, since football is so huge there.
What’s your best Morningside experience so far?
I’d definitely say being a member of the football team and all the friendships I’ve been able to build. Some of my best friends in the world I’ve met here at Morningside. I get to play football, the game that I love, everyday and see them everyday.
The people. Everybody you meet is so nice and so friendly, from coaches to staff to everybody. They all just take a genuine interest in what you’re doing. Teachers don’t just care about how your doing in the class, they care about how you’re doing with everything else in your life.
Football is really the main thing. We have three hour practices everyday. Other than that, I do a lot of work with my mom’s non-profit organization. She goes on a mission trip to Africa each year and houses around 80 orphans. I finally got to go on a trip there this last spring. I like to do a lot of service projects both for Morningside and outside of school.
The football field for sure. I never get sick of it. I love practicing down there everyday and game days are awesome. It’s great to see my friends and family cheering me on.
I love going to La Juanitas. They have the best tacos in town.
I’d tell myself that when it comes to constructive criticism, don’t take it personally. Whether it be from a coach or a professor, they always have your best interests in mind. I wish I would have known that freshman year.

I play a ton of Fortnite, probably too much for my own good.
