Q: Describe a moment when you felt the most Tribe pride...
Our home game against ODU in the 2009-10 season was definitely the moment when I felt the most Tribe pride. Seeing the arena filled to capacity with the student section reaching from the floor to the top of the arena was something that I'll never forget.
Q: Take us through your pre-game mental preparation routine:
Before each game I go over my assignments and the game plan that the coaches have provided. I then visualize myself being successful on the court before putting myself in the moment and preparing to just go out and have fun playing the game I love.
Q: What are some community activities you or your team have done?
We have spent time visiting kids at both Queens Lake Middle School and a home for special needs kids in Norfolk. Each experience was critical in building team chemistry but more importantly giving back to kids in the community that really look up to us.
Q: What is your intended or declared major and why?
Economics. I prefer dealing in numbers and concepts as opposed to reading countless novels and writing 20 page papers about them.
Q: Describe your dream job:
My dream job of course would be to play in the NBA, but I'll be happy with any job that I enjoy and that can support myself and someday a family.
Q: If you could play another sport at W&M what would it be and why?
Football. As my teammates would tell you, I'm not very good in any sport other than basketball than doesn't revolve around natural athleticism; such as softball and ping-pong which they all love playing. With that being said I think I'd be most successful and have the most fun on the football field.

Entourage. Seen every episode at least 3 times, and it never gets old.
