Favorite High School Athletic Moment

2019 American Legion run through regionals and state. It seemed like my teammates and I were playing our best at the same exact time. First time I’ve been on a team where I thought we would never lose a game.


Pre-Game/Event Routine To Get Focused For Competition Include…

I will usually start my “pre-game” routine by popping in some earbuds and trying to relax and calm down. I find I preform at my best when I am in a calm and peaceful mindset. After that I usually try to stretch as much as possible weather that be legs, arms,etc. With all of this I try to stay hydrated as much as possible leading up to the game.


Advice You Would Give To A Freshman High School Athlete

I would tell them to take the same approach to their sport as they would to their school work or job. If you apply a focused and hard working mentality to anything in life you will be in a better position than you were the day before.


A Person(s) Who Had A Major Impact On My Athletic Career & Why Is…

There are many people who have had an impact on me in fact too many to mention. My parents have to be mentioned for always getting me places on time and supporting me no matter what I wanted to do. Not to mention always showing up to support me.


Plans For After Graduation



Favorite High School Class

U.S History


Favorite High School Teacher & Why

I would have to say the band teachers because I’ve known them the longest and I have always enjoyed the way they teach. Mr.Diggins and Mr.Henrickson know how to have a good time but also know when it’s time to go to work and start learning.
