When I was 7 years old, I played in my first basketball league—and after just my first game, I knew basketball would become a big part of my life. In high school, I was a four-time varsity letterman at Piketon High School, as well as topped 1,000 points scored. I also was named twice to first team all-conference, first team
all-district, and special mention All Ohio. After graduating from high school, I played basketball at the University of Rio Grande for two years, where I was awarded academic All River States Conference honor. After Rio Grande, I transferred to the University of Cincinnati, where I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in sports administration. Ultimately, my goal is to be a head coach at the collegiate level.
