You had tons of points last season. Talk about a moment when you needed a basket in a key game.
“It was the first game of the season against Two Rivers. It went down until the end, and we were able to win 71-69. At the end of the game, every basket was a big push of momentum for us.”
What’s your most embarrassing football moment?
“It was during my freshman season near the end of a game. A pass play was called, but I thought it was a run. I was downfield about 30 yards blocking, and we ended up scoring and winning the game. We later watched it many times on film.”
What’s your most memorable sports moment?
“When we made it to state my freshman year in basketball. I remember the last bit of the Columbus Catholic game when Sam Meerstein held onto the ball with four seconds remaining to win the game.”
Talk about the community feel of sports at N.E.W. Lutheran.
“The Blazer community is a family. Everybody knows each other and gets along well. Sports are a big part of the school because it’s small. Sports are one of the only activities fans can cheer at.”
If you could be somebody for a day, who would it be?
“Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos. I’d love to live with lots of money for one day and enjoy all the amenities they have.”
Would you rather pitch 90 mph consistently or hit a 375-foot home run?
