What brought you to VCSU? The opportunity to earn a college degree and chance to play football after high school

What is your career highlight? The chance to play with strangers who became my brothers at Valley City State University. Also winning our last game of the season (2012) when we were down 20-0 at half and came back to win 20-21. Sending off the seniors with a dramatic win like that will be something that I will remember for the rest of my life.

What is your favorite book? Twilight Saga

What is your favorite Movie? Soul Surfer

If you could have dinner with any famous person in history who would it be, and why? I would have dinner with Bob Marley. Growing up in Hawaii I was influenced a lot by reggae music and to meet Bob Marley over a meal would be pretty amazing.

Tell us something that most people would not know about you. I like to go to the beach and bodyboard all day. Then when the sun starts to set, I like to sit on the sand and watch the beautiful sunset fade into the horizon.

Future goals in life? I want to open up my own gym that will help athletes excel in their game and get them to the next level of play.
