Question: What are some of the most memorable moments in your high school athletic career?
Answer: Probably the first time we beat Tri-Valley in basketball. That was a big moment, because we had never beaten Tri-Valley since I've been in high school. It was pretty big. Also beating West M at West M.
Q: Who has been the biggest influence on your athletic career?
A: I would say my dad. He's always pushed me to be the best that I can be. He's helped me to always try my hardest even when things aren't going well.
Q: What advice would you give to your two younger brothers as they go through high school athletics?
A: Just to keep working hard. Hard work pays off.
Q: Is there anything else you would like to add?
A: I thank God everyday for everything I've been given. All the things I've been able to do, I couldn't have done without my teammates and coaches.
