Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?
• Moreno Valley California and the inland empire around is filled with talented athletes. One of the main things I love about it is that the IE is a melting pot of talent in all sports and I proud to say I am a part of them that has made it out.
List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?
• 1) Strength and Conditioning; you cannot be great if you’re not in great shape.

3) practice ; you’re either getting better or getting worse

If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?
• The three strangers. It’s all about how you want to be remembered, family is one of the most important things in the world to me and that’s who I represent in every decision I make. If I wasn’t able to save my family member, I feel they would understand and remember me for what I stood for. The three strangers would have a memory of me for life.
