    Athlete you most admire: Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls
    Best Memory: Probably this whole basketball season. It was the furtherest I’ve ever gotten with a team. I also enjoyed playing with teamates and friends (and fellow class of 2012 graduates) Kyle Shultz and Hermie McClendon
    Can’t get enough of: Playing basketball
    Dream Day: I would win the lottery in the morning then buy my mom a house and a car. Then I would use money to build a community center where everyone could come together and work out or play sports
