    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    The thing I like most about soccer and other sports is the excitement and fun involved. Another thing I love is winning.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    Basketball Final Four trip for Glens Falls in 2007-2008.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
    I am inspired by Lionel Messi because he is hard working and one of the best soccer players in the world. Leo is very undersized but is still the highest scorer in La Liga in Spain.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    The greatest challenge is time. It is tough to find time to focus on academics while working a part-time hob and playing soccer.
