Christmas wishes?

Shoes. That’s it, shoes. I have a lot now, but I want some more. Going to Hawaii, that’s my Christmas gift, and going to San Antonio. After Hawaii, I’ll play in our Dwight Madison tournament and then off to Texas I go.

Happy with season?

I had an OK season, but it would have been great if we had won state. To me, I had an OK season because I didn’t finish my job. It stopped me from having a great season in my eyes.

Baseball in the spring?

Probably, probably not. I’m not sure yet. It just depends on how my time is going.

Juggling sports, school?

With the school thing, I make sure I do my work ahead of time so I don’t have to catch up on anything. Right now, I’m just relaxing. My teachers understand how special these opportunities are and how blessed I am, so it’s not that tough. Not to me, at least.

Mr. Basketball hopes?

The Mr. Basketball thing would have been great to win, but knowing that (Wenonah’s) Derunnya (Wilson) won state two years in a row and might make it three, he deserves it. I congratulate him, if he does win. It’s not that big of a deal.

Visiting the mall tough?

‘Can we take a picture with you, Jeremy? Are you still going to Auburn? Why won’t you go to Alabama?’ Going to the mall, it’s lot of fun seeing different Alabama and Auburn fans. People want to take pictures. It’s crazy.

You’re still ugly?

I’m cute now since I got a haircut.
