How long have you been playing football?

I started playing football in 2013. Before playing football, I was an alpine skiing athlete in Italy, until I reached national levels. I was born in Italy and lived there up to the age of 12. Then I moved to Switzerland because my family had some financial difficulties. From there, my journey with American Football began. One day a friend took me to do Tryouts with the “Calanda Broncos”. After that first training I already realized that I want to dominate in this sport. In no time I managed to become one of the best football players in Europe. This is because I don’t have anything to lose and I always give 100%. On the field and out.

What are your strengths as a player?

My biggest strength is my mentality, it’s the most important part of an athlete. I know what I want and I know how to reach it. With this attitude I know I will always succeed. I also always see things positively, even in difficult times. I’m a receiver which catches every ball that is thrown towards him, with one as well as two hands. I have a lot of confidence in my skills. I’m smart and clever. And even if I’m covered, I can complete the catch. Due to my height, my good hands and my speed, which give me a great advantage, I have the ability to get the ball even through traffic. That’s why I get most of the balls thrown to me. I am very dedicated and I study hard. Because of that, I am also used as “Safety”, “kicker” and “long snapper”. My teammates and my coaches know what I am capable of. They know that everything I start I finish. When I’m in the field I’m hungry, hungry to win, I have a hunger to challenge myself to make my dream come true. I am 110% confident that I can reach very high levels. I’m not interested in anything other than football because for me football is an addiction. I’ll rather shoot and miss, than not shoot at all. My dream will become reality, and it’s destine to happen! I am preparing to be the greatest of all time. I don’t talk empty; I do what I say I do.

Have you taken the SAT?

No, not yet. I am currently still in my first year of a three-year Apprenticeship, as a health worker. So for now, I will mainly focus on finishing those three years first, and of course keep preparing myself for America. I hope to ensure my future this way.

Who do you watch the most and try to play like?

My favorite player is myself, I watch my videos on Hudl every day so I can improve, even when I’m not on the pitch. My companions often associate me with Odell Beckham Jr. Because I have the ability to catch every ball with just one hand, but I don’t like being comforted. I am me

What are your expectations for this year?

I expect great things from this season in the Liga elite. I’ll make as many yards and touchdowns as possible. I want to improve myself as much as possible and dominate my Liga. Hours and hours of training to become unbeatable.

Why should a team recruit you?

I am dedicated and I want to dominate the sport at any cost. I live to realize my dreams. I’m always busy and I have mental strength. I like to get out of my comfort zone and give my best. I am talented in this sport. The speed, my catches and my mind unit in a single moment in order to give the maximum. I want to study and learn new things in order to open my mind even more. Believe in me and I will make you understand what I am capable of.
