What is your favorite soccer memory from high school?
Pretty much soccer all around. I’ve enjoyed playing it all through high school.
You broke your leg right before the playoffs started last month. How tough has it been on you?
It was a horrible feeling to know I had worked so hard all year to be able to play in playoffs, and then I got injured right before I got the chance to play. I felt like I was letting down my team because I couldn’t play and help them in a tough game. Even though we didn’t win, watching our team play and still work just as hard as when I was playing with them, made me feel so much better. Of course, I was frustrated that I couldn’t play, but I thought they played great and couldn’t have asked for a better team.
What is your favorite high school course that you’ve taken?
Biology is what I was best at and I find it very interesting.
If you could have dinner with any four people in the history of the world, who would they be?
(U.S. national team forward) Alex Morgan would be one and Zac Efron, too. I’ll choose Abraham Lincoln because he’s my favorite president, and Jesus.
What are your plans after graduation?
I will attend and play soccer at Dixie State University (in St. George, Utah). I’m going to study nursing, then get married and have kids.
If you had the choice of being all-state in your sport or valedictorian of your class, which would you choose?
All-state in soccer. I know valedictorian would never happen for me because Lake Travis is so competitive grade-wise.
Your dad, Ty Detmer, won the Heisman Trophy while playing for BYU. Does he talk about that much?
My dad is really humble about his awards when it comes to football. When it does come up, he more so talks about his experiences when he played and he just gives me advice. Even though he never says anything about winning the Heisman, I know how good he was and it makes me want to work harder.
Tell me something about yourself that most people don’t know.
Most people don’t know that I wanted to be an actress when I was younger.
If you were trapped on an island, what three things would you want with you?
I would want to have my cell phone, some food like a steak and plenty of water.
Do you have a favorite football team?
I really don’t have a favorite football team, but if I had to choose one, it would probably be the Houston Texans. I only watch football when my dad is watching games, and I enjoy it, but I don’t have a team I really follow.
What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is the steak my dad makes and the mashed potatoes and corn my mom makes. I really like all the food my parents make, but steak is my favorite.
