What inspired you to play Flag Football? I’ve always been a big football fan. My college (UNC Charlotte) did not have a football team, so intramural flag football was a big deal. I was convinced to play by some of my close friends, loved it, and have been playing ever since.
How do you prepare for a big matchup? I prepare for every game the same. I listen to some good music on my way to the field and warm up.
How competitive is the team you play on? Very. I am an extremely competitive person, so I don’t think I could play for them if they weren’t.
How do you like playing in Mid East Sports? This is my first season, and so far, it has been great. I enjoy the competitive level.
What other sports do you play? Softball, Volleyball, Snowboarding, Muay Thai
