Season enjoyable?

It was a lot of fun, making it to the final eight in our first year in the AHSAA was a lot of fun.

Hardest hit this year?

There was a home run against Francis Marion in the playoffs. The guy wasn’t throwing hard, but it was a home run. Another was in the Mobile Christian (quarterfinal series). I hit a ball off the wall in left field.

Favorite coach: Jason or Jerry?

It’s a tie. I’ve known Jason for longer, but Coach Greene has been awesome. He has a nice program going up there at PCA now.

PCA basketball, boys vs. girls. How bad would girls win?

The girls would have lost. Just with Kristen (Emerson), we could put one person on her, two people on her. It doesn’t matter. And play the rest of them with just the three of us.

But what if Jason coaches the girls?

No. Then, we’d have Nathan (Graham, Roberson’s assistant) coaching us. We’d still win.

Summer plans?

Work out for next year. I’m going to play baseball (in college), but I’m sure where yet.

Non-sports stuff?

Nothing really. Just working out. I don’t know.

Favorite subject?

Probably math. I’ve just always been good at it.

Least favorite?

Science. I like anatomy, but chemistry and stuff with all those equations, I don’t really get it sometimes.

Summer movie?

I want to see that “Man of Steel” Superman movie. I need to go see that.

Favorite movie of all-time?

I’ll go with “The Dark Knight.” It’s just awesome. I don’t know why. It has a lot of action and good producers and stuff.

TV show?

SportsCenter, for sure. It’s all I really watch.
