At what age did you start playing soccer?
I started playing soccer at the age of 7.
At what age did you become a GK?
I became a GK full time at the age of 15. I split time in goal and on the field starting at 10.
What is your favorite soccer memory?
My favorite soccer memory has to be making my professional debut for Reno 1868 FC.
Who is your favorite GK to watch/emulate?
My favorite GK to watch and who I try to emulate the most is Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester City.
What is your favorite HPG glove?
My favorite HPG gloves are either the premier yellow and black roll cut, or the purple evolution.
Why did you join the HPG glove family?
I joined the HPG glove family because it is more than a glove provider. Buschy really cares about all of the gks that are part of the family and wants the best for everyone.
One piece of advice you would give a young Gk wanting to become a pro?
One piece of advice I would give to a young gk that wants to become a pro is to learn to love the grind of training day in and day out. The older you get, the more time you spend on the training ground and less time you spend playing in games.
