Favorite memory in your sport, and why? Definitely being back to back State Champ because making to the top is hard enough, but staying there is even harder.
What do you like about your sport? It only takes one good throw to put you ahead.
Wat sport would you like to coach, and why? I would coach shot put because that is obviously my specialty event, but also the amount of knowledge I have gained the past three years has helped me to reach my potential as an athlete and I would love to be able to help someone else to reach theirs.
What number do you wear and why? My sophomore and junior year I wore number 28 just because that's just what happened to be on it and this year I wore 75 because we got new uniforms, so there was no real reason behind it.
What is your pregame routine? The night before a meet I always have grilled chicken for dinner, then the next morning I have to have scrambled eggs for breakfast. Then when it comes time to warm up, I put on my headphones and go as far away as possible from the field and start my usual warm up routines while I drink my spark and rehydrate.
Which college would you like to attend, and why? Penn State and that is where I will be attending. They have an outstanding track team on the rise and their coaches are the greatest people you could ever ask for.
What would you like to major in, and why? What would you like to major in, and why? I will be majoring in Kinesiology because Penn States "Kines" program is top in the nation and those are the first steps to becoming a Physical Therapist.
What is something people might not know about you? I love to go fishing and riding.
What is the toughest team or individual in your sport you've played against in your career, and why? The toughest individual that I have ever playing against is the tape measure. Every meet my goal is to always get PR and the only thing that is pushing me to do so is my previous mark, I always tell myself "last throw, best throw."
