    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics
    The thing I enjoy most about sports is being part of a team and belonging to something. I like to show people what I’ve got on the court and the field.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    Winning sectionals in basketball with my older brother in 2006-07.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
    My father inspires me because of all the talks we’ve had and all the achievements he has made in basketball. He has taught me pretty much all I know.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    The greatest challenges are just being able to get all my schoolwork done while still having time to have fun with my friends after practice.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    Going to college in the Finger Lakes and then joining the military after two years.
