What’s One Part Of Your Game That You Feel You’ve Improved The Most This Fall?
Describe What It Was Like To Be A Part Of The Program’s Inaugural Game On Sept. 30.

What’s One Personal Goal You Have Set For Yourself During The 2018 Season?

What Does It Mean To You To Be A Part Of Team One?
I think Team One is so special because it gives me the opportunity to help start something. I am able to be a part of the making of traditions and witness the program develop from the very beginning and watch it grow. I think it’s so cool that what Team One does will set the stage for many years to come and leave a lasting legacy.
I also think that being on a team where everyone and everything is new is a unique and special circumstance that I am so excited to be a part of. It allows closer relationships with your teammates and coaches because you are all working together to establish something that hasn’t yet been established.
