What are your favorite classes? 

My favorite classes have been AP Biology, human anatomy, and physiology. These classes have really sparked my interest in lab research and medical professions. Having Mr. Hobbs as a teacher also really helped me understand and get through the course.

What do you hope to study?

I want to major in biology because there are many career opportunities that I can take advantage of. As of right now, I want to become a physician assistant or do lab research.

Describe your ideal life 10 years from now.

My ideal life in 10 years is making lots of money living in a big house somewhere on the East Coast, driving in a fast car with a hot girlfriend, and traveling with my friends around the world.

What is your best high school memory?

I would say that some of my best memories are from playing sports and going to the dances. If I were to pick one memory, it would have to be my soccer senior night: the Bangor vs. Pen Argyl game. The crowd was filled and going wild as my team and I put the beat down on our rivals. In the end, the score was a 1-1 tie.

Which band could play the soundtrack to your high school career?

The two artists that could play the soundtrack to my high school career would be Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert. They get me to bust a move wherever and whenever. I think I might like them a little too much.

If there were a movie made about your high school days, what would be the title and which actor would play your part?

The title would definitely have to be “A Big, Curly Mess.” Curly because I got these luxurious curls, and a mess because A LOT of stuff happens over four years. The actor that could play me would be Jesse Eisenberg because he also got the curls.

Which events from Bangor will you miss the most?

The in-school tournaments were always a blast competing against fellow classmate, but I will also miss when everyone got together to root on our athletes playing other schools…the energy was unmatched, especially in the football games.

Who is your biggest mentor?

My biggest mentor was probably my freshman and sophomore year soccer coach Coach White. He was hard on us and pushed me to heights I didn’t know I had, both mentally and physically. He showed us what it took to win; that mentality has stuck with me ever since.

What is your favorite quote to live by?

“If you wait till last minute, it will only take a minute” – Parkinson’s Law. I like this quote because it is the reason for why I procrastinate doing anything and everything.

Who will you remember most in Bangor?

The people I will remember most in Bangor are my boys. Max, Kole, Jake, Brody, Luke, Justin, Kaden, Jacob, and Anthony are the people I love like brothers. Since the start of high school, we were doing everything together. I have made some of the best memories of my life with these guys.

What activities have you been involved in throughout your years at Bangor?

I’ve played for the soccer team for all four years, sophomore year I was inducted into the National Honor Society, I played for the tennis team my senior year, I worked for my dad’s HVAC business, and I was a part of the Quarry Crew student section. My favorite activity was playing for the soccer team because the relationships I built have lasted, and the ways I have grown through the sport made me who I am today. I played right/left starting midfield. One of my main accomplishments was representing Bangor as the scholar athlete for the boys’ soccer team.
