When did you start playing football?
I started playing in second grade, which was actually late compared to all of my friends at the time.
What's your favorite thing about the sport?
My favorite part about playing is my teammates and the bonds we share on and off the field.
What is your favorite Taylor Swift song?
While I am still huge a fan of her older songs (and constantly find myself shamelessly singing them), my current favorite song is, without a doubt, "I Knew You Were Trouble"
If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
The ability to stop time, think about all the napping possibilities...
What is your idea of the perfect first date?
The place really depends on the girl, however a perfect first date for me definitely must include lunch (dinner is for couples and old people) and a fun activity (doesn't matter what, as long as, #1 its fun, and #2 its not boring). I hate how people think first dates should be so formal and stereotypical (dinner and a movie), it makes the date a lot less personal than it should be!
What is your biggest turn-on in a girl?
A great smile.
What are some of your turn offs?
A big ego (there is a lot to be said for shy girls) and too much make-up.
