I was born in Mequon, Wisconsin in 2005 and am the fifth child of Mark and Maura West. I played youth football in the Mequon/Thiensville Cardinal program in Division 1 of the Wisconsin All America Youth Football League. Tom Price was my coach all four years, and I was quarterback, defensive end, linebacker, and kicker/punter. I currently play for Homestead High School in Mequon, where I'm coached by Drake Zortman (Head Coach), Micah Adams (Special Teams), and Tom Price (Kicking). This season (2023), I am kicker/punter, wide receiver, and backup quarterback for the Varsity. Last season (junior), I was fortunate to earn 1st Team All-Conference honors at kicker and punter, All-Region and Honorable Mention All-State recognition at punter, and Special Teams MVP for my high school team. During my sophomore season (2021), I was kicker/punter on the Varsity and quarterback, kicker/punter for the Junior Varsity. I was named All-Conference Honorable Mention at kicker/punter, Our Varsity lost a close game that year in the Wisconsin Division 2 State Championship. In addition to football, I play ice hockey and lacrosse for my high school.
