What do you enjoy most about your sport?
Soccer’s always been a part of my life along with many other sports. I just enjoy the game and love the friendships that come along with it more than anything.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
This year my sectional game against (East Syracuse-Minoa). It was such a well played game and I wouldn’t have asked for any other team or coaches to spend my senior year with.
Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
My friend Sarah Alexander. She was always the best at everything she did and gave 100 percent while maintaining a social life and good grades.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
I would say getting to bed at a normal time. I’m usually up all night after a practice or a game finishing my homework and keeping up with my academics.
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
I’m planning to attend a four-year university then proceed to medical school. I don’t know if I’ll be playing soccer, but the option isn’t out.
