Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

Q: What has been your favorite sports memory so far in high school?
A: Definitely winning sections last year in basketball.
Q: What was it like playing through that game?
A: It was pretty crazy and a lot of fun. I like competing and to come out winning was even better. Hopefully we can do the same thing this year.
