What do you most love about what you do for a living?
I love the rush of working really hard to prepare for a game and then showcasing that work in front of 70,000+ people.
How would you spend a perfect day in Center City?
I’d workout and have lunch at the Fitler Club, pick up a suit from Damari Savile, get my beard trimmed at Ethos, then go to dinner at Harp & Crown, and finish off the night listening to live music at Time.
"I love shopping at Urban Outfitters, I can get all of the smaller complimentary pieces to go with my Damari Savile suits and even walk out with a new vinyl record."
