Aidan has two passions – football and snowboarding. This Air Academy senior athlete plays both defensive end and offensive tackle for the Kadets. He particularly loves playing defense, and his main objective, of course, sacking the quarterback!
With winter right around the corner, Aidan anxiously awaits the first snowfall when he can enjoy his second love — snowboarding. Arapahoe Basin is his preferred resort and boarding through the trees is what he likes best.
In addition, Aidan works for his dad’s wholesale fastener company and this summer he spent a considerable amount of time doing inventory. What did he have to say about performing that task? “It’s doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” In other words, it was boring!
During the Christmas season, Aidan volunteers at “Christmas from the Heart” where he organizes food and then hands it out to families in need.
When he’s not playing football, snowboarding, volunteering or working, Aidan can be found wrestling with his one year old Pit Bull mix, Cubby. So that the dog knows play time is over, Aidan ends the wrestle session with a hug.
After graduation, Aidan hopes to attend Montana State University and is looking to study engineering.
