Most Memorable Moment in High School Sports: "Beating Monticello in sectional semifinals as a sophomore. It was a great tournament atmosphere and it was probably one of my first big impact games as a player in tournaments. Nothing is better than high school playoffs and tournaments."

Best Part of Playing Three Sports: "Since a lot of guys don't play three sports any more, I get to hang with different friends in the different sports and make new friends, too."
