Colgate Commit. I started by playing park district ball in third grade, and AAU ball since fifth grade. I never found another sport that I love more than basketball. I was fortunate enough to become a class 4A State Champion in my freshman year as well as in my sophomore year at Geneva. In my spare time I enjoy boating and water sports, hanging out with friends, and spending time with my family. Basketball has taught me that in order to be successful you need to work hard, as is in life.
