• Persons who have had the greatest influence on my athletic career: My family, friends and teammates.

• Best advice I’ve ever been given: All things are possible with God.


• Best advice I can give younger athletes: Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t do something. When you do that, you have already given up and will fail because you have no confidence in yourself.

• What high school athletics have meant to me: I love being a part of high school athletics because I can be part of a team. Having a team is like having built-in friends — your team has your back. I also enjoy staying in shape and pushing myself to succeed.

• College plans: As of right now I plan on going to Indiana Wesleyan. I plan on majoring in social work and minoring in worship ministries, and I’m considering joining its swim team.
