  • Self-description in 10 words or less: "funny, easy going, and goal oriented"
  • My favorite aspect of being an athlete is:"representing more than myself. When I put my jersey on I feel like a neighborhood superhero because kids look up to me and even want to be in my spot and I get the chance to honor the name on the front of my jersey more than the one on my back."
  • The part of my game I've most improved is: "keeping my composure at all times of the game. No matter if I've been fouled or have an open shot with 5 seconds left in the game, just always staying composed."
  • My personal athletic goal at VWC is: "to be a national champion and gain the most experience possible for the next level."
  • If I could spend the day with a famous person from any time period it would be:"Jesus for obvious resasons or Richard Branson because I'd love to spend a day on his private island. We would take his private jets everywhere, and I would leave rich."
  • If I could participate in a reality show it would be: "Jersey Shore because I would have outrageous muscles and live in an environment that makes it acceptable to be sloppy."
  • It's the year 2025 and: "I expect to be ending a very elaborate soccer career and starting my sports broadcasting profession. I plan to be married with two kids and living in a very nice suburb."
  • If I could possess one superpower it would be: "the ability to fly because that would save me a lot of money on gas and I'd get there a lot quicker."
  • People might be surprised to know: " that I still play Pokemon on my Gameboy often."
  • The most important advice I've received is: "success is a choice and the decision is yours." -- Sean McGinness (boss) "What have you done to become a champion today?" --Sidney Danner (coach)
