He attended the Saint Joseph’s Cohort Appalachian summer service trip to Tennessee to help build homes for people in need. And, he is a member of Delta Omega, a boys’ service fraternity.

Coach David Rosenzweig says this about his player, “He is a quiet and calm leader, who leads by example, No one ever has any bad words to say about him. His teammates all admire him and play with a certain confidence knowing he’s with them on the field. He had to learn a brand new offense over summer practices. I already have full trust in him to run our new offense. He is an exceptional student-athlete who maximizes his abilities on and off the field. When he graduates it will be a true loss to our community and we will miss his wonderful example of a Holy Spirit Prep student.”
