Favorite Sport: "Basketball. It has always been my passion. At a very young age, I remember doing drills and playing for hours and hours in the driveway with my sister and my dad and never getting tired of it. I started playing AAU basketball when I was nine and through that nine-year experience, I was able to meet so many people and create great relationships, travel across the country and see many places, play against the best competition against players who will compete at all levels in the future, and make life-long friends. Basketball has taught me many things about life that cannot be put into words and it has bought out the best version of myself."

Best Part of High School Sports: "Playing for a great school and community. Nothing compares to playing in important games and having constant support from an outstanding community and student body."

Best Advice from a High School Coach: "Listen to the message, not the tone."

Most Memorable Moment in High School Sports: "Hopefully, there are some still to come. So far, winning a regional championship my sophomore year in basketball is the top highlight. We won back-to-back home games on back-to-back nights, both ending with buzzer-beating, game-winning shots."

Best Part of Playing Three Sports: "The atmosphere is unique for all three sports. There a different feel that I get from each game-day atmosphere and they are all great to experience."

Toughest Part of Playing Three Sports: "Time management. It gets very difficult to have enough time for morning workouts, school, practice, sometimes double practices with AAU basketball, homework and studying, and planning to try to get eight hours of sleep before the next early morning workout. There's no time for slacking, but it has held me accountable for getting it all done, and competing on game-day makes it all worth it."

Favorite Opponent: Oregon

Favorite Professional Teams: Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Bucks

Favorite Professional Athlete: Giannis Antetokounmpo

Favorite College Teams: Michigan Tech, Wisconsin, Drake, Oshkosh

Cumulative GPA: 4.0

Toughest Individual You’ve Competed Against: "Brady Schipper. He was my basketball and football teammate my sophomore year. His physical and mental toughness, athleticism and work ethic are unmatched and I was able to learn a lot from him."

Most Admired High School Teammate: "Jack Nelson. He is committed to play football for the Wisconsin Badgers, and it has been awesome to see him grown in his high school career. We have been playing together and working out together for many years. I'm proud of him for all he has accomplished so far and his improvements in the weight room and on the field have been incredible."

College Plans: "I plan to play basketball and study statistics and Michigan Tech University."

Activities Outside of Sports: National Honor Society, Link Crew, Wisconsin Swing AAU
