Collegiate Athletics: Yes, I am pursuing playing football or basketball in college. Honestly, it really doesn’t matter to me which sport I end-up playing if it helps my parents not have to pay for college.
On Basketball: I love the game of basketball because of the competitiveness. You never know what other players are going to bring to the game and what you’re going to run into.
Role Model: Coach Jacob Smith. He always pushes me to do my best and he is always straight-forward with me.
Powerful High School Lesson: Even when things are not going your way — never give up.
Standout Teacher: My former teacher, Mr. Jerry Medlock, stands out to me. Although he is no longer my teacher, he still checks up on me time after time. He helps me with my schoolwork whenever I need it.
Favorite Food: Pasta
On CCHS: I would not change a thing about CCHS and I have enjoyed my high school career. I have made great memories there that will last a lifetime.
