MaxPreps article

 national article - I started every game on varsity at QB this past season as a freshman. I was the first freshmen to ever start varsity at AQ. Aquinas is the enrollment size of a "B" school in NYS and we have played in the "A" classification for years. This season we were moved to "AA", the largest classification in NYS and with me playing QB, we won the "AA" title. Aquianas is one of the top ranked football programs in NY, having produced a number of college recruits over the years. Most recently D1 prospects Jarron Jones (Notre Dame) and Jahmahl Pardner (Pitt). I have a great work ethic on the field and in the gym, but I feel my strongest quality is my leadership.
