I see you wear No. 0. How did you get that number?

I chose 0 because a senior took the number 3 during my sophomore year. Seniors get first pick, so I got 0. Since my sophomore year I just loved the number and decided to stay 0 instead of going back to 3.

What has been your favorite basketball memory at Round Rock?

My favorite memory is winning our first playoff game last year.

I hear you have exciting college plans.

Yes, I’m looking forward to see where Abilene Christian will take my basketball talents and see how much better of a player and person I will become.

What high school do you consider your biggest rival?

I consider Stony Point our biggest rival. Out of the four times I have played them, all of them have been very tense and chippy and have been close games.

What is your favorite play to make in a game?

My favorite play to make in a game is a late game 3-pointer when it is needed the most. It is always a harder shot in a big moment and always gets the crowd going late in the game.

If you could have dinner with four people in the history of the world, who would they be?

I'd pick Jesus, Dwyane Wade, Michael Jordan, Kevin Hart.

Dwyane Wade?

He is the guy that made me start playing basketball.

Tell me something most people don't know about you.

Most people do not know that I love to fish whenever I have time to.

What do you think you'll be doing in 10 years?

In 10 years' time I hope that I will be coaching in high school or college.

What has been your favorite vacation?

My favorite vacation is when my family rented a big place and went to Woodloch Pines (resort) in Pennsylvania. We were with all of my cousins and family that we hadn’t seen in years.

What do you consider the world's greatest invention?

I would have to say the internet because even though there is good and bad to it, being able to have all that information at your fingertips is just amazing.
