What does football mean to you?

I started football as a sophomore in high school, I have played only two full seasons. For me, football is not just a sport or just a game, I’ve honestly felt a strong connection to football ever since I learned of it, once I’m sure about what I want to do I make it happen and seeing as though football is what I want to make a career out of, I’ve put in the work to become the player I am right now and continue to keep working on improving myself not only physically but mentally as well.

How did school go for you this year as far as your grades?

School went better for me this year than the last, despite the ups and downs I’ve faced in learning new material. Subjects that I was weak at in the past have now become my strongest.

How is Taft looking for next season?


Our team here at Taft have developed closer bonds and there are multiple people working their hardest to make their goals a reality, we have there are multiple guys who understand what’s at stake and what they need to do to achieve their goals. To me, Taft looks really good and I believe we’ll all have a good season.

What do you want college coaches to know about you?

I am coachable and I learn from my mistakes quickly, I have good work ethic and am never satisfied until I have achieved my goals, I am willing to work my hardest and compete to be the best version of myself that I possibly can.


Do you plan to attend any camps this summer?

Yes, I am. I plan to attend a couple mega camps as well as smaller camps hosted closer to my area.

Last question-If there is one player on your team that you would say this is going to be his year, who would that be?

Jaiden Salmeron, there are a lot of good players that I can think of and know are still improving, however, Jaiden has been in my position and having worked with him to get to this point, I have seen how much he has grown as a player.
