How the athlete trains: "Honestly, I don’t have much time to train in the off-season for basketball. I’m involved in other sports but when the season does come around, I know I have to work twice as hard to catch up to everyone else."
Athlete's advice for others: "For anyone who is thinking about trying basketball I would say go for it. You may end up falling in love with it. It doesn’t hurt to try something new."
Athlete’s plan after high school: "As of now after high school I’m leaning toward going to the University of Northern Iowa. My major is still undecided."
