What’s your favorite thing about Messiah soccer?

The relationships that I have with the guys on the team. Messiah’s a special place to play. The bond that we share is unlike any other team I’ve been a part of. They’re more like my brothers than anything else.

How do you balance sports and studies?

Making sure you set aside time for both. Make sure you set time aside for your studies, be intentional with the people around you, and then, of course, time for soccer. I haven’t found that too difficult this year, my classes haven’t been super hard.

What’s something funny that’s happened so far this year?

It has to be being called the wrong thing by Coach McCarty multiple times. It happens about every other practice. He calls me my brother’s name – Kirby, who’s also on the team.

If you could travel to one place in the world, where would you go?

Besides the United States, I’ve only been to Brazil, but I’d love to go to Europe. I’ve never been to Europe, and it just seems like there’s so many cool places to go to. I’ve thought about studying abroad. My brother who graduated from Messiah studied in Israel; I’d love to do that too.

What’s something you miss about home?

I miss being around my family. I come from a family of six, so I have two siblings at home. I miss being around them. I miss being around my parents. I miss the people from my high school too.

If you could be a dessert what would you be?

Aw man, I don’t know. I really like banana pudding. I don’t know what my reason would be, other than the fact that I like it – it’s really good.
