I have the athleticism and speed to play a number of positions, I work hard and am always willing to push myself to the next level.

When I realized that no one is perfect, it’s how to come back from failure that is more important. I’ve been a lot more calm and it shows in my play.

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?
