In seventh grade, he had a goal sheet taped to his wall just below his father’s #97 Rose Bowl game jersey, which said, “I will play football at the University of Michigan.” In 2018, his dreams did come true.

Aidan has inherited his father’s skills and is determined to achieve his goals, even wearing his father’s jersey number, 97.

Despite playing differently due to his unique frame, Chris recognizes similarities between his son’s playing style and his own.

He was a great player from his starting years, but unfortunately, he suffered a season-ending injury that sidelined him for an entire year.
