A Person(s) Who Had A Major Impact On My Athletic Career & Why Is…
Jake Vandeberg. Jake has been one of my coaches since elementary school club basketball. He taught me so much about not only basketball, but athletics in general. Jake has always believed in my athletic ability and has helped me become the athlete I am today. Mr. Laper has also had a big impact on my athletic career. He was in charge of summer sport camps that I always attended, taught me how to shoot and dribble a basketball, and continues to have sport related conversations with me although his time as a high school coach has ended.

I plan to attend a four year college after graduation and study physical therapy.
