Favorite Sport: "Basketball because I have played it the longest and I enjoy the pace that it is played at. I also enjoy the teamwork that basketball requires and I have built so many relationships through this sport."

Best Part of High School Sports: "The best part of high school sports is being able to compete with my best friends and taking all of the time and practice I have built my whole life, and finally being able to use my abilities in sports. Also, playing in front of thousands of people every Friday night is something that not many people get to experience."

Which Person Has Served as Positive Role Model in Sports For You: "My parents for taking me to all of my events all year round and paying for all my equipment and traveling costs. They have supported me through all of the years. Also, all of my coaches, specifically coach Krause, coach Lucchesi, coach Mlachnik and coach Cerroni."

Best Part of Playing Three Sports: "The best part about playing three sports is definitely all of the friends and relationships that I have created. I met all of my best friends through sports. I also enjoy always having something to do all year. I am constantly having games and practices."

Toughest Part of Playing Three Sports: "The toughest part of playing three sports would be the wear and tear on my body. I am always sore and have had many injuries throughout my career."

Favorite Opponent: "Playing Arrowhead in really tough because they are one of the best teams in our conference in every sport and they are a big school with many great athletes, and are also very well coached."
