As an athlete, what is your motivation?

My mother. She’s a hard-working woman who makes all kinds of sacrifices for me and my siblings and that motivates me to another level.

What defines success for you?

I 100% believe the following is true about success: “Success is really nothing more than the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. This means that any person who knows what they are doing and where they are going is a success. Any person with a goal towards which they are working is a successful person.” -Earl Nightingale

What would your teammates say about the type of teammate you are?

My teammates would say that I am the type of teammate that I am a hard working, no shortcuts leader that makes everyone around better. A very humble guy.
