D9and10Sports: How did you first get involved in sports and did you like it?
A: I first got into sports by playing basketball with my older siblings. I enjoyed growing up playing with them.
D9and10Sports: Who has been your biggest influence in life and why?
A: The biggest influence in my parents and my siblings. This is because they have inspired me to do certain things that I now love like basketball and other sports. My family also pushes me to be the best person that I can be.
D9and10Sports: What is your favorite high school sports memory?
A: My favorite memory is either winning the D9 Championship my freshman year or winning the Sweet Sixteen game that year. I loved the championship game because it came down to the final seconds and was so exciting. The Sweet Sixteen game was fun starting in a state playoff game as a freshman & our team played very well.
