How did you first get interested in your sport?

When I was really little me and my dad used to play catch outside in the backyard. He would show me the fundamentals and teach me the rules and how the game worked. When he coached my first football game, that is when I fell in love with the game.   

If you play other sports, which is your favorite and why?

I play basketball and I also run track, but football is easily my favorite. Football for me is just a different type of compassion. It takes kids that you barely know and it forms an unbreakable brotherhood. I love the feeling when you go out on the field with your brothers and have a whole town cheering you on. 

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned from high school sports?

The most valuable lesson I have learned is to never give up on yourself. Always keep working hard even when nothing is going your way. Just keep pushing and pushing yourself and you will see results very quickly. 

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

My dad gave me the best advice I have ever received: “never give up on yourself and always work twice as hard as everyone else.” 

What has been your favorite high school memory?

My favorite memory was beating Twin Falls for the first time is Canyon Ridge history at their place.  

What coaches or teachers have made the biggest impact on your athletic career?

Coach Impo and Coach Hicks have made the biggest impact on my life because they never gave up on me and always had my back. 

Which teammates have you really connected with during high school? 

My favorite teammates I love competing with are Louie Cresto and Brody Osen. I enjoy competing with them because us three have put in so much time and work into football. And when we succeed and do something right, we all go crazy and when something goes wrong, we have eachothers’ back. 

Is there anyone in your family who have helped you get to where you are today?

My parents, Matt and Torie Osen, have always been there for me. They came to all my games and would drive me to Boise to work out with Shane Williams-Rhodes and Armand Nance, former BSU standouts.  I learned a lot from Shane and Armand. They pushed me to get better.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Most everyone that knows me knows that I talk a lot and like to have fun. But I like to help people too. That is why I chose nursing as a career path.

What would you like to see to all the other Idaho athletes who had their season cut short?

This was tough for all of us to spin this negative into a positive. Learn from it any way you can to be a better person and athlete. Nothing is guaranteed.
