1. Which professional athlete do you have the most respect for?

Daniel Briere, former Buffalo Sabre who wore number 48. I have much respect for him mainly because of his work ethic. Being a smaller player, under 6 ft., he was always one of the hardest working guys on the ice. He may have lacked size, however he never lacked heart, and for this he is recognized as one of the top Stanely Cup Playoff performers of all time. 

2. What's your competition day meal?

My pre-game meal normally consists of chicken and rice, on occasion some type of pasta.

3. What age did you start competing in your sport?

Started competing around age 3 or 4.

4. Do you have a hidden or special talent?

High key very good at keep up with a soccer ball, was the raining suer ball champion until last weekend a teammate knocked me out in a championship game.

5. What is your career goal post college?

Pursue a professional career in hockey, or end up with a very promising career pertaining to my major, Electrical engineering.

6. What's on your music playlist?

When it comes to music I am not particularly picky, I listen to all genres dependent of my mood. Recently country music has grown on me a lot and is now my go to.

7. Do you have any pre-competition rituals?

Not very superstitious before games, I just try to stay relaxed and not get to overly excited/anxious.

8. What's the best advice anyone has given you?

"Don't let anyone take away from your confidence, play your game and have fun out there. Only you know what you're capable of. " Best advice from my step-father Carl Amato.

9. What are your hobbies outside of your sport?

If rest and sleeping count as hobbies that would most likely be it! However I really enjoy getting together with all my buddies when I have free time. I enjoy playing pickup sports, video games on occasion.

10. What's your favorite memory since competing for your institution?

It's almost impossible to choose a favorite memory, I've had a lot of great memories thus far with my teammates/brothers on and off the ice so its hard to say. However one of the best feelings is the moral in the locker room with all the guys after a win.
