Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
I enjoy the competition in high school sports. The best part about basketball is when the gym is packed with fans at a home game, and we get a win for them. I love the energy in the gym.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
My most memorable athletic moment was when I broke a total of seven school records for football and was recognized for it during the end of the year football banquet.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
Someone who inspires me to play sports is my dad. He was an athlete his whole life and still is. He always had me in the backyard teaching me how to throw, shoot, catch, etc.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
School always comes first so whenever I have spare time either before or after practices I always get my homework and studies in. That will take you farther in life then sports. You need a good education.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
I plan on playing football in college somewhere and continuing my studies.
