What are your plans for the future?

I’ve narrowed my college choices to UK, Bellarmine and Murray. I want to do anything with exercise science or sports therapy or sports law. Anything around sports teams.

Who has had the biggest influence on you? Why?

My dad, because even though he’s been tough, he has taught me a lot of lessons. He’s taught me to live by Christ and the Bible.

Who do you admire and why:

Josh Harellson because he really had to strive hard and step up when DeMarcus Cousins left. He really had to work hard to make himself a better player and to help his team reach the Final Four. He shows that hard work does pay off.

What’s your favorite thing about playing sports?

It keeps you in shape and keeps you busy. Competing is always fun.
