Soccer Honors: Two-year varsity letter winner for coach Chris Becker ... Helped Preble to league championships as a junior and senior ... Team captain as a senior ... First-team all-FRCC choice as a junior and senior at forward ... FRCC Player of the Year as a senior ... Led WIAA Division 1 schools in the state in assists in 2018 ...

Honorable mention all-conference in the 4x800 as a freshman ... First-team all-league in the 800 and 4x800 as a sophomore ... Second-team all-conference in the 4x800 as a junior. 

Favorite Sport: "Out of the four sports I play, soccer would have to be my favorite because I've been playing the sport since I was four years old and because of the relationships I have made and the opportunities it has brought me."

Best Part of High School Sports: "The best part of high school sports would have to be competing against nearby high schools while representing my school and playing with my friends."

Best Advice from a High School Coach: "Play every game like it's your last." -- Coach Becker

Most Memorable Moment in High School Sports: "Scoring a goal with one second remaining to beat Green Bay Southwest would have to be my most memorable moment."

Best Part of Playing Four Sports: "One of the best parts of playing multiple sports would have to be how each sport contributes to the others. For example, the speed I gain from track helps me on the soccer pitch and basketball court. Playing soccer helps me be a better kicker for the football team, and playing basketball helps me stay in shape for the track season."

Toughest Part of Playing Four Sports: "One of the hardest things about playing a different sport each season is that I cannot specialize and play one sport all year long. Other athletes often do this and gain an advantage. Balancing sports, classes and friends year round also is hard to do."
