What position do you play?
I play Point Guard
What’s your favorite thing about playing for Plant City High School?
I like playing at Plant City High School because everyone around you wants to see you win, players and coaches included.
This season, where do you believe that you’ve made your best improvement?
Since the beginning of the season, I’ve worked on being more aggressive while playing, in order to improve my offense and defense.
If there’s one thing you wish you could improve your game on, what would it be?
If I could improve one thing in my game, it would be to shoot better.
What’s been the highlight of your basketball season so far? You and the team.
My highlight of the season was against Newsome. It was a huge game for us and I hit the game-winning shot for the team and we finally beat them.
What’s the best advice Coach Teeden has given you?
Coach Teeden is a great coach. He always tells me that offense might not be there every single night, but you can always bring the energy and effort on defense.
Do you have any NBA or College Basketball players that you model your game after?
I try to model my game behind Kyrie Irving, a shifty scoring guard who can also get the team involved.
If you’re not playing basketball, what are you doing?
Always playing basketball
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
I don’t have any pre-game rituals.
What are your top three hype songs to get you locked in for game day?
