What I worked on during the off-season: Defense, quickness, strength
I started playing the game of basketball... by playing in my driveway with my friends and neighbors and playing with my dad.
Top childhood memory: Going on vacation with my twin sister, twin brothers and parents
What I've learned from Coach Grentz"Challenges create needs, needs create deeds."
I chose my jersey number because...My high school number is 22, so I chose 2 because I like 2s.
Growing up I most admired...my parents.
