Growing up basketball has been a part of my life since the age of 5. The game of basketball means a lot to me and that is proven as I have been pushing my self night in and night out to become a better player and teammate almost every single day. I know that to achieve my goals of playing and competing at the game I love at a high level, I need to work hard for it. When I get to that high level competition of basketball at the collegiate level, I want to show my teammates, coaches and those around me that at the end of the day I’m a competitor and a great teammate that will do anything to win the ball game. Outside of the gym I understand the concept of “no books, no ball”. To play the game of basketball at all you have to have the grades and I make sure to stay on top of mines as I take my academic success very serious.
