    Quoting the Coach:
    "He's a high character kid, who's going to be the valedictorian of his class. He's a highly athletic kid who makes a lot of plays and he's going to finish as our school's all-time second-leading tackler. I think he'll do well with the transition. The mental part will be a big thing, the academic he'll be fine and all the off-the-field stuff he'll be fine on. He's a highly intellectual kid and a really good athlete. I think after his redshirt freshman year he'll be able to come in and make an impact on special teams and get in the mix as a redshirt freshman."
    - Dade Christian School Head Coach Mike Sonneborn
