One thing my coach always says that I’ll never forget … think about who you want to be in the trench with you. Who’s going to be there to have your back?

I will consider myself a success when … Even if I had a good job and a lot of money, I still wouldn’t feel successful. I never feel accomplished because there’s always something else that I strive to do.

If I won the lottery, the first thing I’d buy is … a vacation house

If I could tell one person thanks, it would be Keith Van Horn or Tyler Cline. They gave me one of the best opportunities by allowing me to play on the Colorado Premier Basketball Club.

I’ve been seeing the trash talk, indirect and direct, surrounding our preseason Super 25 boys’ basketball rankings.

Some teams feel like they’re ranked too low and point this out by saying what they’ll do if they face the team ranked ahead of them.

I love it.

I think it’s healthy for the game. Good old fashioned competition.

Let the games begin.
