What foods or drinks help you gear up and stay energized for games?  

Before games, I usually don’t like to eat a lot. I always have some type of energy drink. Either a Bubbler or Bang/Reign and for food I like to eat at least an hour before warmups. I tend to have some type of protein bar or a source of protein like oats, tuna or chicken.

What is your most memorable sporting experience?

My most memorable sporting experience was going to state in high school for softball. It was a big thing for our community as a whole and the atmosphere was unforgettable!  

What was your favorite TV show when growing up?  

When growing up, my family always had some type of crime show on whether it was in the kitchen or living room. My favorite TV show was probably Criminal Minds.

What is the strangest talent you have?

I would not consider this a talent, but I have double jointed fingers and my fingers fold backwards strangely far. 

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?  

I would want to fly mainly because you can go anywhere you want in a timely manner. Going on trips wouldn’t be an issue!

At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?  

 Definitely Scheels. Anytime I walk into that store I tend to spend a lot of money I don’t have.

What are your long-term goals after graduation?

My long-term goal after graduation is to be happy all around. Especially in my career. I want to go into real estate when I graduate and eventually flip houses.
