How do you prepare before a game?
I don’t do much of anything out of the ordinary before a game. Before the game I always listen to music; I prefer rap and hip-hop. After I change and wait for the game before ours to end, I like to decompress by just hanging with my team or some friends before we go into the locker room.

What is your most memorable moment to date in your high school uniform?
My most memorable moment was Senior Night for basketball. Everyone showed up to support and the team all played very well. It was an amazing night because the whole team and all the fans were having a great time.

Who is your favorite pro or college athlete?
My favorite athlete comes from the NBA – Kevin Garnett. I have always admired how hard he plays, especially on the defensive end. He is a man that lets nothing rattle him, and someone I have always wanted to play and be like.

What are your college plans?
I have been accepted to Quinnipiac University, Hofstra University, Liberty University, and the University of Connecticut. I wholeheartedly want to go to UConn, but I did not commit as yet.
