A. Coach Ulerick opens the weight room at 7 a.m. every day so lifting and doing workouts has helped me a lot.
Q. Who do you consider your biggest role model? Why?
A. My dad. We don’t always see eye to eye but he’s a great person. He pushes me to be the best I can be. I can’t ever imagine not having him in my life.
Q. What is something that not everyone knows about you?
A. I literally ran into Taylor Swift at a Notre Dame football game one time. It was awesome!
Q. What is your favorite memory of playing sports at your school?
A. My sophomore year we played Pioneer at home in a standing room-only gym and won. It was a crazy atmosphere and something I’ll never forget.
Q. What are your goals for your future? Do you plan on attending college?
A. I plan on attending Purdue University and major in sales and management. I want to be a high school basketball coach some day also.
