Ethan played for the “passionate Pennfield varsity football team” for three full seasons. “Football has helped me make new friends and meet new people that I will remember for the rest of my life.” Ethan was voted best defensive player in his junior and senior seasons.
In addition to football, Ethan earned two varsity letters in basketball and track. “These sports allowed me to work on competing and leadership skills.”
Ethan said, “I can’t give enough thanks to my mother and father. They helped guide me through the recruiting process that was not always fun and enjoyable.” He also gave “credit to all my coaches and teammates throughout my football career from Rocket football all the way to the varsity team. They’ve been a big influence on my success.” He gave a special thanks to Mike Vanvleet for “all the hard work and dedication he has contributed to help me accomplish my dream of playing college football.”
