How long have you been playing basketball?
I’ve been playing basketball since I was 4 years old.
What’s it like playing High School basketball with your dad as your coach?
Playing basketball for my dad is awesome because I love having someone that I can trust as a coach.
How is it going from playing with your older brother Taylor growing up to now having him be a part of the PCHS coaching staff?
Having my brother go from a teammate to a coach is great because he’s a good supporter and an experienced helper with the team.
Your team is currently on pace to have one of the best seasons in PCHS basketball history. Why is this team so good?
I’d say the team is very good this year because of how well the team chemistry is. It’s amazing to have a team that you love and are successful with.
I noticed you guys are 8-0 at home. How much of an impact does playing at home help you guys?
PCHS home games are just a good environment. Teams coming to us is always an advantage for us in the game.
Do you have a favorite personal highlight or memory that you want to share from this season?
My favorite memory this season is when our favorite senior who doesn’t normally dress, scored eight points in a row. It was one of the most exciting things that I’ve seen.
If you could improve your game in one certain aspect, what would you choose and why?
One part of my game that I need to work on is finishing inside. I’ve done a great job at getting to the rim, now I just gotta finish.
Do you have a favorite college or NBA player that you try to mimic their game?
An NBA player that I want to play like is Marcus Smart on the Memphis Grizzlies. He is always hustling on defense and is playing hard no matter what. He’s not the best scorer but he’s always showing up on defense.
If you’re not playing basketball, what are you doing in your free time?
When I’m not playing basketball, I’m playing baseball and hanging out with friends and family.
What’s your top three songs to get you hyped and ready for game day?
No top 3, but any song by Drake.
