What are your plans for the future?

I want to go to college and major in political science or something to do with government.

Who has had the biggest influence on you?

My dad, because as he says, “I beat my own drum.” He does as he pleases.

Who do you admire and why:

George Washington, because, think about all he had to do. He was a general against the British and won against all odds and he was the first president of a new country.

John Lennon because he didn’t go with the crowd. He wasn’t afraid to oppose the government.

What’s your favorite thing about playing sports?

I just like to be outside. With golf it’s all mental – you have to be tough mentally.
