What’s been your favorite basketball moment in high school?
In the Jack Frost tournament this year, I scored the winning basket in overtime against Incarnate Word. That was a really exciting moment for me and my team.
Why is Georgetown so good every year?
We have an awesome coaching staff. They are always prepared and pushing us to become the best players we can. We have a very intense preseason and offseason so we are in the best shape possible. In Georgetown, basketball starts at a very early age. I remember seeing Coach (Rhonda) Farney at our Little Dribblers game in third and fourth grades.
Where’s the coolest place Georgetown has played a game?
Every year, coach Farney plans an out-of-state tournament. My sophomore year, we went to Tampa, Fla., and our whole team stayed in a beach house together. These tournaments are always a lot of fun, and they bring us together as a team.
How do you train on days when you don’t feel working out?
I remember how my team and I felt when we lost in the regional finals last year, and we use that feeling for motivation because we don’t want to feel that again this year.
If you could have dinner with any four people in the history of the world, whom would you invite?
Ronald Reagan, Florence Nightingale, Albert Einstein and Mark Twain.
Why did you choose Florence Nightingale?
She was the founder of modern nursing. My goal in life is to become a neonatal nurse so I look up to Florence and it would be awesome to meet her.
If you had the choice of being valedictorian of your class or all-state in basketball, which would you choose?
That is a very difficult question, but if I had to choose I would choose valedictorian. Even though I love the game of basketball, I know academics is going to pave the way for my future.
What’s your most prized possession?
I have a family portrait from when I was younger hanging above my dresser. It reminds me every day of the importance of family.
Does your team have pre-game rituals?
We listen to music then have quiet time and we write something important to us on our wrists. I write the Bible verse Psalms 37:5 — Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.
Which of your high school classes will benefit you the most after you graduate?
I took speech through ACC my junior year, and it helped me tackle my fear of public speaking. It helped me gain confidence in public speaking.
What are your college plans?
I will study nursing at TCU. I don’t plan to play basketball in college so I can focus on nursing school.
What’s your favorite food?
Chicken enchiladas with creamy jalapeño sauce from Chuy’s.
