When did you start playing football?

I got interested in the sport from a tender age after watching my older brothers playing football. It was not until I was seven years old in grade two that I started playing the game.

Which team did you play against in your first Manning Cup competition?

I played my first Manning Cup game against Jonathan Grant High School. We won the game 1-0.

Who is your international football idol?

My international idol is no other than Cristiano Ronaldo. He is a hard-working player, who at all times trie to do his best to help his team. Ronaldo is often considered the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest of all time and I totally agree with that. Ronaldo has won four FIFA Ballon d'Or awards so far, which I believe is the most for a European player, and he is the first player in history to win four European Golden Shoes as well. He is very brilliant with the ball as he has phenomenal skills and he is a goal-scoring machine.

How do you rate your school's chances in this year's competition?

I would say that my school has a very good chance in this year's competition because we have some of the best players and coaches in the competition.

Which school do you fear most and why?

I don't fear any school because I know that my team is very strong and is capable of taking all trophies on offer.

How important is it for a student/athlete to have a solid education?

It is very important to have a solid education as it prepares a student/athlete for the working world and it is also a reliable source for jobs in the case of a career-ending injury.

What are your educational achievements to date?

I have seven CSEC subjects and one CAPE subject.

What is your ultimate life ambition?

My ultimate life ambition is to become a professional football player.

Who has had the biggest impact on your life?

My mom has had the biggest impact on my life. She has been there for me, encouraging me to do my best at all times.
