He was sponsored by Pitt Fight Club in order to run for homecoming court.


Q: How did you feel about winning homecoming king?

A: I felt it was a testament to who I was as a person, it made me believe that I have made a connection with people here. I always like to treat people with kindness, so I think my win was a testament to that too.

Q: How did it feel to be nominated for homecoming court?

A: I am very grateful for the people who sponsored me for this, without them I wouldn’t be in this position, and I appreciate it all.

Q: What are you looking forward to now that you’re king?

A: I’m excited to be on a float for the Greensburg Christmas Parade, it should be a fun experience.

Q: How did it feel for two kings to be crowned at homecoming this year?

A: I personally loved it, it was a great day for us. When it comes to stuff like this, it doesn’t feel competitive. Plus, I got to share a moment with Hank, so it was the best case scenario in my eyes.

Q: How did you feel about winning homecoming king?

A: It felt good. I was surprised I won, I thought it was funny that I won with Lamont, but overall it felt good.

Q: Why did you want to run for homecoming king?

A: I thought that it would be fun to do for my last year since I’m a senior this year.

Q: What are you looking forward to since you’ve become king?

A: I’m ready to prepare for graduation and I’m excited to have a good last school year with my friends.

Q: How do you feel about two kings being crowned?

A: I feel it was a good thing for us to win. I got to share that with Lamont and I think it’s good for the future because, say a man wants to run with his boyfriend, then it’s possible for them to both win.
