Q: You performed well here at Pangos All-East Frosh/Soph Camp. What was this like for you?
A: “It’s my first time here and coming into it I didn’t know how I was going to do. Once the ball tipped off I relaxed and played well.”
Q: When you are on the court playing well, how are you impacting the game?
A: “It all starts with my aggression because when I’m aggressive I get most of my buckets. I create opportunities for myself
Q: If someone were to watch you play for the first time what do you think they would say?
A: “They would probably say that I work hard and do the little things like going for loose balls. I think they’d notice how aggressive I am and how I never give up on a play.”
Q: What do you see as the next step in your game?
A: “I would like to add a pull up jump shot off the dribble, I want to improve on my basketball I.Q. and my passing.”
Q: What are some of the goals you have in mind for this high school season at Avon Old Farms?
A: “I’m trying to help lead my team to a NEPSAC Championship. I have to make sure I do everything I can to help my team like hitting shots and get my big men involved.”
