How is volleyball season going for you?
Right now currently we are in a rough patch in the first half due to major blows in injuries. But nobody should count us out of the race yet because we’ve all played on a Vortex together (our club team). Once everyone's healthy again I believe we can turn some heads. Only thing standing in the way is us.
How has Volleyball helped your Football skills?
It has taught me a new way of thinking. Its not about the fire, and intensity all the time. It’s more of how you listen and react to certain situations because anything can happen. My club coach Ed even had to tell me a couple times it’s not like football you have to move on quickly to the next play there are no pauses; so you can’t harp on one play, you have to be ready for the next.
Funniest Evanston coach is?
It would have to be Coach Conley (aka bald headed Eddie). I love that man to death he’s like my second dad. Just don’t argue with him about wearing camo.
