Briefly, what is your background in the sport you play?

Other than your family members, who was the most influential person in your life?
Jesus Christ. He is why I live my life the way I live it.
What is the most important societal issue facing college students?
Standing up for what you believe in, in a respectful way. Everyone has different beliefs and views but people today think poorly of the individual for what they think just because it is not the same as their idea.

Have fun and don’t stress about the future.

Name three (3) people, real or fictional, living or dead, that you'd like to have dinner with?
My parents and President Thomas S. Monson. I miss and love my parents a lot and I have a lot of questions I would want to ask Thomas S. Monson.
