Why Did You Start Wrestling?

Wrestling always interested me because as a kid I used to watch WWE, but my school never had a team.  Instead of wrestling I started to train MMA in my free time.  I learned about Beat the Streets offseason clubs while looking for a place to work out on the internet.

Why do you enjoy wrestling?

I enjoy wrestling because it is very fun.  I’m honestly not so great at other sports, but wrestling comes naturally.  I like to challenge and compete with the best.  Wrestling is hard work, but it pays off and that’s why I like it so much.

What impact has wrestling had on your life and academics?

Wrestling has caused me to focus a lot more on my education especially because my special needs school doesn’t have wrestling.  I’m trying to gain admission to a public school to compete and to have a better chance for college.

What do you want to do when you get older?

Professional MMA Fighter

What is your favorite college/university?

Kutztown University

Who is your favorite athlete?

Jon Jones
