Student-athlete spotlight: Making an immediate impact

Who is your favorite athlete and why?

LeBron James. He can do it all. It’s fun to watch him.

What would be a perfect performance in basketball?

It would be a game where I could have a triple double. I used to do triple doubles a lot. I can score 40 points here, which would be perfect with a win.

What is your favorite class in school and why?

I like geometry right now. It is kind of easy for me here.

Being taller than a majority of players, what is difficult about playing in the post?

Getting down low is kind of hard especially like physically because in the games you don’t have the advantage from the refs because you get fouled, pushed and they don’t call it because you are 6-11.

What is the key to being a good shot blocker?

Timing and my length.

How fun has it been to play high school basketball?

Sometimes you get triple teamed, don’t get the ball and get a bad call. That’s OK. It’s not that tough. I just have fun, play my game, do what I can do and just be me.
