WHAT DO YOU FEEL LIKE IS YOUR PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY ON THE FIELD? To be the foundation of the defense and help lead people.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SEASON SO FAR? We’ve had some unlucky breaks but as a team I think we’re a lot better than we were last year so we should be good.
WHAT’S BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT TO THE SEASON SO FAR? For myself, it was beating Rogers in the semifinals of the Texarakana tournament. I scored two goals myself.
WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE FOR THE TEAM TO BE SUCCESSFUL THE REST OF THE SEASON? Not give up. We’ve got to keep pushing and fighting, not to hang your head down whenever we lose.
INDIVIDUALLY, WHAT ABOUT YOUR GAME ARE YOU MOST CONFIDENT ABOUT? Just leading people, telling them what to do and then I would say just distributing the ball to other people and keeping it solid in the back.
WHAT DO YOU WORK HARDEST TO IMPROVE? Mainly my touch work and then just communication is a big thing also.
AFTER YOU’RE THROUGH PLAYING SOCCER AT BHS, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL REMEMBER MOST FONDLY ABOUT IT? Just four years of having a great time, just having fun with meeting new people and just becoming really close to everybody on the team.
