What are some of your most memorable athletic accomplishments?

I think just being a part of a team that is on the rise and being able to be a part of it all. Last season tripling the number of wins the team has had in over 5 years!


What are your goals for this upcoming season?

Having been able to really learn and work on the sport this past summer in my own time I think has taught me a lot, sadly in my last season. So for this last season, I'm ready to lay it all out on the court and one of those things is I want to be a shooting threat and one of the top scorers in the league. 


What is one lesson you have learned from playing high school sports?

You can always tell how much you care about anything by the impact you ffeel as a person/player. The weeks you feel like quitting the most are weeks you are pushing yourself the hardest. You have given your all to the sport mentally and physically. The only reason you're feeling this way is because you want to be better and are working so hard towards achieving that and don't want to settle for less than what you can truly accomplish. 


What are your career or college plans after you graduate high school? 

After high school, I'm going to be going to South Dakota State, and am currently undecided in my major.
