    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    I enjoy the competitive nature of soccer. The game is so quick passed and exciting. The game can change in an instant, which means little room for errors.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    Scoring the tying goal against Sherburne-Earlville with four seconds left in the game.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
    My parents have always inspired me to play sports. They are always at my games supporting me whether it is soccer, bowling, or track. They always encourage me to do my best and to keep my head up even if I have a bad game.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    Balancing school and soccer has always been a challenge. School always comes before sports, this means doing homework after practice and games.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    After graduating high school I plan on attending Green Mountain College in Vermont to major in Natural Resource Management and to continue playing soccer.
