From a young age, I have known the game of basketball relates to the game of life. I understand if I work hard, am a good teammate, get better everyday, and give everything I have then ultimately I will have lived a solid life. God gives us different blessings and skills. Basketball is just another way in which to live my life as a living sacrifice. Our family has 3 mottos my mom and dad instilled in us from the beginning: 1. Love God with all we have 2. Never, never, never give up 3. Work Hard Whatever I do and wherever I go those 3 things are coming with me.
