I hope to make new friends from all around the state and be able to help the hospital. 

How are you preparing to run with a football?
I have not prepared to run with a football so it should be interesting...

10/10 I accomplished my goal of sub-17 and my goal of qualifying for the shrine bowl run.

No, I am still talking to a few small colleges and deciding what my best option is right now.

 I ran XC to get in shape for soccer during my freshman year and fell in love with the sport.

Shriners Hospital? 
No.

How have you seen the 
sport change in the state? Please explain.
I have seen younger and younger runners make varsity and impact team scores on the boys side. 

What was your motivation for your final XC season?
My motivation was knowing that I can not leave anything out on the course because this could be the last year of doing a sport that has had such a positive impact on my life. 

If there is one thing in the world you could do, what would it be and why?
I would end world hunger and poverty so that everyone had a chance to enjoy life to the fullest.
