The greatest thing about being a Gryphon is: being part of the best football program in Canada

One thing I wish more people knew about me is: I am a really positive person and I like when it gets contagious for the people around me

The most important thing that playing football has taught me is: I learned a lot from football, one of the biggest things I learned is to fall forward, no matter what. In football it means beating your opponent in a 1 on 1 confrontation. In life, it means don’t let anything take you down, but if it happens make sure you are still advancing in a good direction

In 5-10 years I hope to be: It’s always hard to picture yourself so far ahead in time. But, I can say that I see myself still doing what I love and what makes me happy. Hopefully I’ll have my BAC too by then
