I don’t plan to play after college because I want to start my career and probably coach basketball on the side.

Do you have any shout outs or people who contributed to helping you reach your goals?

I would like to shout out my parents for helping me make all of this possible. My AAU coaches, Coach Roberts and Coach Eagles, who have trained me and pushed me since 8th grade to help get me where I am today and boost my confidence. They also helped me get scouted so I can play in college. I couldn’t do it without them. I would also like to shout out my high school coaches, Coach Shoemaker and Coach Campbell. I thank them for helping me get where I am today and develop me as a player and person.
