His hobbies include football and boxing.

Cadet DaCosta recently enrolled in ROTC this semester as a Leaders' Training Course (LTC) candidate. He pursued ROTC that he might strengthen and further develop his leadership qualities. He has shown great diligence by learning an impressive amount of material in a very short period of time. He has learned from his peers and has devoted himself to self study. He has led the company in physical training and drill and ceremony with outstanding results. Cadet DaCosta's dedication and commitment reflects great credit upon himself, Charlie Company, the University at Albany and the Mohawk Battalion.
