What got you into playing basketball?

What got me into playing basketball is the competition of the sport and my dad, since he played it when he was younger, he got me into the game.

How long have you been playing for?

I’ve been playing basketball since kindergarten but started playing on a travel team since third grade.

What’s the best part about playing the game?

The best part about playing the game is the competition. Competing every moment and every play to get a win.

Do you plan to play in college?

I do plan to play in college, I haven’t decided where yet though.

What’s your favorite game/memory of your career?

I have lots of favorite memories and hopefully more to make. But when we won the sub-state championship last year against Wichita West to go to state, getting to celebrate with my family, friends, coaches and teammates was one of my favorite memories.
