Defensive Back – Edmonton Eskimos

It’s Sunday morning. What are you having for breakfast? 

I try to keep my breakfasts consistent throughout the week. It’s usually a veggie smoothie with a couple of eggs. Quick and easy!

When you’re headed to the gym, what’s on your music playlist? 

I usually have hip-hop playing. Sometimes for a change up I’ll play some electronic music!

If you could attend one sports event (outside of the Grey Cup) this year, what would it be? 

The Super Bowl! Especially if the Eagles are in it!

What’s the best thing about the fitness scene in YEG? 

There are more outdoor activities available here than a lot of other cities, which is really cool. I haven’t had to deal with the snow yet but I hear that doesn’t stop people from getting out there and staying active!

If we were buying, what are you drinking? 

I’m a big fan of a “Dark and Stormy”. It can be hit or miss because a lot of places don’t carry ginger beer. Second round is on me!

Weirdest fitness activity or trend you’ve ever tried? 

I don’t know how weird it is, but I’ve done a couple of aqua-fit classes. Water training is a nice change to ease up the load on the joints every now and then!

What’s on the top of your bucket list? 

I would really like to try pufferfish or “fugu”. It doesn’t look like I’m going find that in Canada though. I might have to take a trip to Japan soon.

Where would you like to go on your next summer vacation? 

We don’t get summer vacations because of the timing of the season. But for my winter vacation I’m heading to Belize!

What’s in your gym bag right now? 

In my gym bag I keep a pair of running shoes, cleats, extra socks, a lacrosse ball, and a bunch of woody bands for stretching and muscle activation. Most of the other essentials are taken care of by the club or my performance centre!

What words do you live by? 

Don’t just ask questions, look for answers.
