How did you get your start in your sport?

How have you improved in your sport from last season?

“I’m a lot better passer.”

What kind of weaknesses do you have?

“We don’t tip as well as we should, getting it over blocks.”

What is it about your team that you like?

“I like this team because they’re just a good group to be around and they don’t get frustrated when things are going bad.”

What is your least favorite thing about your sport?

“It’s really easy when you’re when you’re not doing well to let it affect you mentally, and then you just do worse and worse.”

“How goofy we all are. It’s very hard for us to take anything serious.”
