Most entertaining person you follow on social media?
I don't even know. I have social media, but I never really go on it at all.
Must have food?
I am a big pizza guy. Sometimes I like sushi. My go to would have to be pizza.
Must see show?
Game of Thrones.
Morning person or night owl?
I am not really either. If I had to say one, I would say night owl.
Who is your football mentor or inspiration?
All my coaches I have had in the past. Even recently. Everybody who helped me along the way.
What motivates you?
Trying to be the best I can be. Make my family name be known.
What is your football mindset/approach?
There is another guy trying to beat me and get to the quarterback or whoever has the ball. It's a one-on-one battle and I have to be the guy who comes out on top.
When did you start to dream about playing in the NFL?
It's always been a dream of mine to play professional sports. It hasn't always been football. I think football really started being the more predominant sport for me when I was a sophomore or junior in college.
Why do you play football?
I love it. It's a team-based sport. You have the camaraderie with your teammates. There is no other sport like it.
What is your proudest football moment or memory?
I would say when we won the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference championship in college. We were playing Slippery Rock. We had to score a touchdown late in the game to win. We drove down the field and did it with just a couple of seconds left.
When you hear Steelers football, what do you think?
It's very much like the city itself. Blue collar. Hard workers. Show up to work and do what you are told and keep at it.
