What do you enjoy most about playing your sports?
I like getting to hang out with the girls. It’s a lot of fun. The friendships, the memories and the bonds, they’re a lot of fun and they last forever.

What do you like best about being a student athlete?
We get to get out of school early, which is a really fun, but you get a lot of recognition and I like being an athlete in general.

Who has been the most influential person in your school sports career? Why?
Coach Derek (Dantin). Coach Derek saw potential in me and he pushed me to be the person I am. He pushed me harder than I thought I could push myself, so that meant a lot.

Favorite team?
Ben’s Ford Christian School Lady Eagles.

Best thing about living in Washington Parish?
I like the fair. It’s just passing or whatever and I like that we come from small town, but we have such a big impact and a lot of people know where we are because of the fair, so it’s a lot of fun.
