My Dad and older brother Sam.  My dad was my coach when I was younger, and I enjoyed watching my brother Sam play soccer growing up.  My Mom is great, too.

What was your favorite part about soccer over any other sport? 

In soccer there is constant action, and I love the excitement and challenge of helping my team score goals.

What is your least favorite part about the sport? 

My least favorite thing about soccer is that regular season games can end in a draw.

Do you prefer day games or night games under the lights?  

Night games under the lights.

I love getting assists and scoring goals!   

What is the best advice you have ever gotten from a coach or parent about your sport?  

Sacrifice for success.

What has been your most memorable experience in high school sports so far?  

Going to state for soccer my freshman and sophomore year was fun, but my most memorable experience in high school sports so far has to be going 30-0 and winning the state basketball championship my junior year.

Do you prefer weight lifting or conditioning? 

Weight lifting, but I enjoy both.

How do you typically prepare for a game, both mentally and physically? 

Mentally: I like to listen to music.  Physically: Stretch before leaving for the game.

What are you most excited for with your senior season? 

Having fun playing soccer with my high school friends and making one last run.

What is your favorite way to celebrate after a big win, like with your big comeback against Sturgeon Bay last week where you scored two goals? 

When we have a big win, I enjoy going out to eat with the team and celebrating together.

What is your current favorite TV show?  

Ted Lasso.

What are your plans for the future (college/major/career)?

I am planning to play soccer in college and major in exercise science in hopes of becoming a strength and conditioning coach for a professional sports team or university.
