My favorite Madeira sports memory is when we went on a 7-game winning streak, including the playoff win, against Williamsburg during baseball season.

My motivation to practice each and every day is that I made a commitment and I know that if I want to succeed and play, I would have to go to practice every day.
Q4: What is your favorite pre-game meal and why do you eat that?
I do not eat before games because I am scared that I will get sick.

Q8: What is the funniest thing that you have seen or happened to you in a practice or game?
The funniest thing I have experienced in a game is was when Max Mobley and JJ Hoeffel got mad and got into a scuffle with the other team after Peter Breidenbach got cheap-shotted at a football game. It was really funny and awesome because I have never seen them so mad.
Q9: What is next after you graduate?
I plan on going to college and either major in psychology or political science. I just want to feel out the vibe.
Q10: What advice would you give an 8th grade athlete as they move on to high school sports?
If I had to give advice to an 8th-grade athlete as they move into high school, I would tell them to buy into lifting because I didn’t and I regret it majorly. Also make the most out of your time in high school, as it is a quick 4 years.
