What are your three favorite apps? Snapchat; Instagram; Twitter.

Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Weird/silly/goofy; outgoing; intense.

What is your favorite pregame meal? Subway. I have to have it or I feel that I won't perform at my best.

At my first varsity practice, I felt ... nervous, anxious, excited, all at the same time.

How do you balance school and sports during the year? I have to stay very disciplined, and use my time wisely.

If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be? Longer basketball season and a better way of determining teams for playoffs.

What is the best sports advice you ever received? The best advice I have ever gotten was from my dad. He said: "Leave it all on the floor." Meaning, play hard and after the game have a feeling of knowing I did everything to the best of my ability, knowing I played my part as a teammate.
