What does it mean to be named to the Shrine Bowl Run team and helping the hospital?           
It means a lot because they do great work and work for a great cause so it is an honor to run for them.

What did you hear about the Shrine Bowl Run before this year?           
I heard about how you run the ball to the Shrine Bowl Game.

What do you hope to experience during The Run?         
I hope to make some friends and get to know others.

How are you preparing to run with a football?           
I'll probably just throw it to myself throughout and play around with it.

How would you rate your senior season?         
I would rate it about an 8 because I know I still have more to give.

What future goals do you have?         
I hope to go to Clemson University and work on becoming a physical trainer.

Have you made the decision to compete or not at the next level? Please explain.               
I have decided not to run in college because of how much time it takes up.

How did you get involved with the sport and when?               
I started in seventh grade because my brother and sister were very successful runners.

Do you have any relation or know someone that has attended the Shriners Hospital?             
I do not.

How have you seen the sport change in the state? Please explain.               
Yes, the top runners are consistently improving and getting faster, especially Colin Baker.

What was your motivation for your final XC season?             
I really wanted to beat my brother's PR and prove that public schools are just as good as private
(Except my boys Aidan, Logan and Sam).

If there is one thing in the world you could do, what would it be and why?             
I wish I could end world hunger because so many people are less fortunate than we can even imagine.
