What is your favorite course you are enrolled in this semester & why?

My favorite course I am enrolled in this semester would be by online Healthful Living class. I'm having a much better experience than my past online classes and the material and workload works well with my schedule.

What is your favorite pump-up song or music?

My favorite pump-up song at the moment would be "KD Freestyle" by Jay Critch.

What is your favorite movie about sports & why?

My favorite movie about sports would probably have to be The Benchwarmers or Semi-Pro. The Benchwarmers is a classic with non-stop funny scenes and you can also never go wrong with a Will Ferrell movie.

If you were stranded on an island, which one of your teammates would you want with you & why?

I would want Taniece Redden with me because we grew up together and I know we would turn into tenacious local legends in survival mode on the island. Our persistent teamwork would ultimately make the dream work.

What would you eat for your last meal?

A bacon cheeseburger with hot wings in the side.

What is one thing you do to prepare for a game, match, or meet?

I always listen to playlist of mine before the game actually starts. At home games, I usually shoot around with earbuds in to get into a rhythm.

If you could have one super power, what would it be & why?

It would probably be invisibility so I can go around doing everyday things without being seen or talked to. Although, psychokinesis would be an extremely fun power to have because it enables you to have more powers than just a single one.

What is your dream occupation & why?

My dream occupation would be getting paid to play basketball overseas or coaching a worldwide team. Not having to worry about money at all and just worrying about staying fit seems like the dream to me.
