What do you remember most about your first organized basketball team?
That I played with kids who were three years older than I was. I was about 7 and playing in the Dove Springs League.
What’s your favorite basketball memory at Travis?
Of all the memories I have in high school, my favorite was making the playoffs last season with the class of 2013 seniors.
What are your personal goals for this season?
I don’t really have any personal goal, but a goal I would like to achieve is make it to the second round of playoffs with my team.
What are your college plans?
I would like to go to college somewhere. If given a chance, I’d like to play basketball there. As for what I’d major in, I have no clue on that just yet.
If you could have dinner with any four people in the history of the world, who would they be?
That’s an easy one. I would invite Eva Longoria, (Washington Wizards guard) John Wall, (comedian) Dave Chappelle and Bo Jackson.
Why would you invite Bo Jackson?
Bo Jackson was the man back in his day. Everyone wanted to meet him. Everyone wanted to be like him.
If you could attend any concert, who would you like to see?
Kanye West. I’ve already got tickets to see him later in the month in San Antonio. His music gets you excited. His shows were always full of people you’d like to meet and they’re always packed.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
I’ve got one. My pre-game ritual is to eat something sweet, preferably Sour Patch Kids.
Tell me something about yourself that most people don’t know.
Not too many people know that I can speak Español easily.
What do you consider to be the world’s greatest invention?
In my opinion, the greatest invention would have to be the cell phone. They’re a crucial device that a person could not live without.
If you had the choice of being valedictorian of your class or all-state in basketball, which would you pick?
I would choose being valedictorian because that shows that you’re the smartest student in your entire school.
What’s your favorite basketball team?
The Houston Rockets. Mainly because there aren’t too many teams in the NBA that are better than us.
What is your favorite food?
I’ve got two — coconut shrimp and teriyaki chicken. There’s a Chinese place in the food court at Barton (Creek Square) Mall that I go to just for that.
