First memory of running onto Kottmeyer Field?
Wasn’t my first memory, but walking out with my best friends in front of line senior year always gave me chills.
Memories from Blue & Gold Camp?

Being one of the smallest kids on the field but being able to have a significant impact on every game.
What is one thing Downingtown Football taught you that you carry with you today?
Family goes far beyond the field of play.
Funniest thing you can remember as a player?
The most comedy I remember was the DB circles before practice with my guys.
How did your involvement in athletics aid in the path that you chose?
It gave me the work ethic to never give up, and see that everything I did, I did it 100 %.
Funniest teammate and why…
Any of the DBs (Dudley, Howe, Duffy) always kept me laughing.
What saying or phrase do you still hear in your head?
Play for those who came before you, and those who will come after you.
Where are you living now and what are you doing?
I live in Hoboken, New Jersey working as a System Specialist at MIAX Exchange Group.
Last time at a game?
Been a while; I need to be back for sure.
I wish I knew this when I played…
Take time to sit back and enjoy the ride.
What would you like to share to the current and future Downingtown Football players?
Stay true to your coaching and trust the work you have put in. If you give coach Matta the same level of effort and intensity he gives you, you will be successful.
