How difficult is it for you to balance athletics with your academic requirements?

"Right now I only go to school for half a day, the other half of the day I help out around school. ... When soccer is over, I plan on getting a job, but right now I have a lot of free time to work on my studies."

Who has had the biggest influence on your life?

"My parents, they taught me how to be a good person."

Why do you like the sport you play?

"I don't know, I guess it's because I've been playing so long."

How much time do you invest in practicing on your own?

"About an extra five hours a week."

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be?



What are your career aspirations?

"I want to go to WVU or Marshall, and study teaching or something with athletics."

Who do you listen to most on your Ipod?

"Rock: Nirvana."
