    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    The thing I enjoy most about soccer is scoring goals. The feeling you get after you score a goal in a big game is indescribable.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    My most memorable soccer moment is breaking the single-game scoring record as well as passing my brother's career scoring record in the same game. It was a great day.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
    A person who inspires me in sports is my father. My dad was a great athlete growing up and he’s taken everything he’s learned and passed it on to me. He sees the potential that I have and pushes me to be the best I can be. Every game he gives me little challenges. He has, without a doubt, made me the player that I am.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    My greatest challenge balancing sports and academics is simply time. Between games and practices, there’s little time for school work. But you learn how to find little pockets of time here and there to get your work done.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    Attending college for IT Security/Computer Science and playing soccer.
