What are your plans for next year?
Looking either to go to Central Washington or UC San Diego. I want to play volleyball and basketball there. I’m striving towards being a college coach some day.
When someone is struggling toward a goal,
what advice would you give them?
One is infinitely more than zero, so don’t underestimate the progress of a baby step.
Who is your inspirations to play basketball?
All my bros in my city, all the kids that I coach, and my coaches because without the support of them believing in me, I wouldn’t see what it was like to have a purpose bigger than myself.
What is your biggest pet peeve on the basketball court?
Going down silently, quitting. Never quit; the fight is never over.
What are you doing during the summer?
Working at Cascade Sports Camp. I’ll be teaching and coaching children. I will also be preparing for next level and stages in my life. I’m going to bring my little brother down here so we can get better together.
