Oct. 23, 2013

SPORT: Football
CLASS: 2014
MAJOR: Theater


What do you enjoy about your major?
The thing I enjoy the most about being a theater major is that I get to be creative. I have the opportunity to do something different every day.

What is your favorite class (or professor) and why?
Professor Michael O’Neil has been my favorite professor so far at Lafayette. Professor O’Neil speaks his mind all the time and he is unreserved in his opinions. He tells it how it is and makes class entertaining.

Right now I’m taking Acting I and I am enjoying that class a lot. We do a lot of improv, so people are doing funny things every day.

What is your passion, and how has Lafayette enabled you to pursue it?
My passion is just living life to the fullest every day. Lafayette has allowed me to take a very diverse education and has given me the skills to do a lot different things.

Do you have any post-graduation plans?
I plan on moving to Hollywood to pursue an acting career or a career in the entertainment industry.


What is the most important thing the team has to do to be successful?
For our team to be successful, we just need to be focused on the game, especially during the game. Everyone needs to be focused on their assignments and executing each and every play.

If you could play any opponent in the country, who would it be and why?
I would want to play Miami. After seeing ESPN’s 30 for 30, “The U”, I want to see if Miami is really as tough as they are made out to be.

Do you have any superstitions or pregame rituals?
I’m not superstitious at all, but I do have my own pregame routine that I like to go through before each game. I go out on the field before anyone on the team and get a good run in and a stretch by myself. I like to be able to think by myself and get out of the noise and commotion of the locker room. It gets me mentally prepared and ready to go before kickoff.


What is your favorite sport other than football?
I like to play pickup basketball with my friends, I didn’t play in high school, but I do enjoy playing when I can.

What is your favorite spot on campus (or in Easton) to eat and why?
My favorite place to eat is Marquis on Fridays because it’s wing day, and who doesn’t like chicken wings?

What song/band/album is most likely to be playing on your iPod?
Get lucky by Daft Punk

What movie can you quote word-for-word?
Pulp Fiction

Who is most famous person you have ever met?
President George W. Bush
