Favorite sports memory:
Winning a Division 4 state championship in basketball my sophomore year. Nothing to this point has been more thrilling or exciting then that moment after the buzzer of the championship game against Grantsburg. To this day, I still think about that moment and how exciting and joyful that entire journey was starting with the first day of practice all the way up to leaving Madison with a gold ball. I will never forget coming back into Marathon with the streets lined with people just as excited as we were.
Advice to an athlete:
Don’t get caught up in just one thing, whether it be one sport, school, friends, etc. A successful student athlete must allocate their time equally. Success as a student-athlete is unattainable without strong organizational skills. Also make good choices and think before every action you perform because someone is always watching. Lastly, do what is right even though you are going against the crowd because doing this can make a positive influence on many people and change people’s outlook on life.
My inspiration was found in success and in bringing joy and pride to others. I went out every practice and every game looking to make my family, friends, school, and community proud. They were my motivation and they kept me pushing through in difficult times. More specifically I was motivated by the youth in the community because it always gave me a sense of personal pride when a younger kid would come up to me and tell me “good game” or “you’re awesome.” With that being said, my dad really inspired me in that he continually told me to stay humble, and without that who knows what type of person I would be today. Though I have received recognition and many awards, I understand that I still must stay true to who I am: a person of integrity, humility, and strong character.
