"The opportunity to play football at a high level for a great team brought me to Weber State. I'm from the Bay area, right side of San Francisco, and I came on a visit and fell in love with the guys here, the coaching staff, the area...that's why I chose Weber. I'm a Senior in the Communications department as a PR student, and Sonja Green - she's the secretary - she's so helpful. I love seeing her and she always brightens my day. I'm also part of the SAAC, the Student Athlete Advisor Committee. The hardest part about being a student athlete is balancing school, football, sleep and eating. One of my biggest struggles was I just wouldn't eat, and I can't do that. As an athlete, I have to be eating as much as I can. That's the hardest part; juggling all of that and being a successful football player. The most rewarding part though is playing the sport, and especially with football, we get so close with the guys and the coaches. I really do believe there's a good amount of people here that I'll know for the rest of my life. There are people here who are going to be at my wedding, probably, that I met because of football. My favorite moment at Weber State was a game we played down in Southern Utah, an in-state rival. We were down 22 points with 9 minutes left in the fourth quarter and we ended up coming back to win the game by 1 point. Some of our fans left because they thought the game was over, but we just kept fighting and that was one of the craziest locker rooms I've ever been in."
