A heartfelt thank you goes out to my parents, whose steady support and countless sacrifices have been the foundation of my success. I also want to extend my appreciation to my family, friends, and the incredible supporters who have stood by me throughout my football journey. I am blessed to have such a strong support system.

To the coaches, staff, and amazing fans at Penn State, thank you for giving a kid from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, the opportunity to wear the blue and white and fulfill his dream of becoming a Nittany Lion. The memories and experiences will forever hold a special place in my heart.

I also want to thank and express my gratitude to the University of Minnesota for four unforgettable years. The memories and relationships made during my time there will be cherished for a lifetime.

With that being said, I am excited to announce my decision to declare for the 2024 NFL Draft. The lessons learned, the challenges overcome, and the memories creative have prepared me for my next chapter.”
