  • Self-description in 10 words or less: "athletic, short, fun, smart, sarcastic and friendly"
  • My favorite aspect of being an athlete is: "being in the heat of the moment and making that one diving catch or getting that one clutch hit to win the game, and finally knowing that all your hard work all season has paid off."
  • My personal athletic goals at VWC are: "to just be there for my teammates and being able to pick them up where they're down.  I want my teammates to have confidence in me when I'm on the field and help carry my team to victory."
  • The part of my game I've improved the most is: "catching, all aspects of it.  The throw downs, blocking, framing, calling pitches and the mentality needed behind the plate."
  • If I could spend one day with a famous person from any time period it would be: "Taylor Swift, because she seems so down to earth and I think we'd have a lot of fun."

  • The most important advice I've received is: "don't let the little things get o you and spend your time upset when you could be happy enjoying every second of your life" -- Jordan Gilkerson
