Out of all of your high school accomplishments which stands out the most and why?

My favorite accomplishment is being part of the fastest cross country team in Bullitt Central History.

If you could do it all over again what would you change about your running career in high school?

I would focus more on running and improving my sophomore and junior year.

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?

Working and having to leave practice early was my biggest obstacle.

What will you miss the most?

I will miss the team and all the memories we made at practice, camping, and at meets. 

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

The advice I will give the younger runners is to focus and give it your all every race and practice.

My plan after high school is to become an electrician.

Who would you like to say thank you to?

I'd like to thank the team for giving it all they had every race and practice and my family for coming to most of my races to support me and my team. Also, I would like to think Isaac for being able to handle us and couch us to state and making this year an amazing senior year.
