Favorite sports memory:

Too many to pick from! Honestly, every memory I have form the sports I have participated in has so much meaning to each one. The best feeling tho is when you have that sense of accomplishment in your self and your team when you do something great.

Advice to an athlete:

You can't let obstacles slow you down. If you aren’t willing to push your self to get around those obstacles and you won't know what great accomplishment is on the other side.

Your inspiration:

The want and need for sports and the environment that came with them. My freshmen year I tore my ACL and was unable to finish most of my seasons but I found a way to be apart of the teams in one way or another. My teammates and coaches were the ones to keep me going all the time. They encouraged me to keep getting stronger and better each day. What really inspired me was when I tore my ACL for a second time my team didn't give up on me. They kept pushing me so that I could come back as strong as I have.
