WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE PRO ATHLETE? Kobe Bryant.
WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE PRO TEAM? The Los Angeles Lakers. I've liked them since I was a little kid and always wanted to play for them. Plus, Phil Jackson is a great coach, and they play real well together.
WHAT OTHER SPORTS DO YOU LIKE TO PLAY? I played baseball until ninth grade, and I played football last year, but now I'm just concentrating on basketball.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO FOR A LIVING WHEN YOU GET OLDER? I want to be an accountant, like my dad [Bob].
WHO IS THE HARDEST TEAM TO PLAY AGAINST? Cherokee. They always have a huge fan base cheering for them, and they always put five players out on the court who play real good defense and compete.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE A RULE FOR HIGH-SCHOOL BASKETBALL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I'd put in a shot clock and make it 35 seconds, just like college.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MEAL? Spaghetti and meatballs.
WHAT IS YOUR ROUTINE ON GAME DAY? When I get home from school, I have a bowl of cereal and then I watch a documentary on Kobe Bryant. I have a lot of them.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS FOR YOUR TEAM THIS SEASON? We'd like to win the conference [Olympic American], win the sectionals [Group 4] and then see how far we could go in the states.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECT? Math. I like working with numbers and figuring things out.
