Question: You just had a big dunk against Fort Frye last Saturday night. What was that like?
Answer: It was my first high school dunk. It was an opportunity, and I decided to go for it. I've been working hard on (dunking).
Q: What are your expectations, goals for your senior season?
A: We want to try to make It back to state. We're taking it game by game, but that's our main goal, our focus.
Q: You've already signed a National Letter of Intent to continue your education play basketball at West Liberty University. That's got to be a relief.
A: It is. I just want to play high school basketball now.
Q: What are some of the basketball highlights that stand out during your career?
A: There's quite a few, but I'd have to say beating Athens last year was one of them. That was a pretty exciting game.
Then winning the regional to go to state at the Convo, that was really something.
Individually, it was when I broke the school record and in the next game, I shook hands with the previous record-holder.
Q: Who has impacted or influenced you the most during your basketball career?
A: My parents. They've supported me all the way. My dad's always giving me helpful pointers.
Q: Do you have any other interests outside of basketball?
A: I like to play football with my friends, and play video games. In school, I'm in the national honor society and the Spanish honor society.
