What it is like to finally have a break from all of your sports?Its awesome. I can focus on school and get all of my work done, so its good.
How hard is it to transition from one sport to the next?The hardest thing is to get into shape for that sport. I may not be in running condition for each sport, but its sometimes hard, but its mostly easy because my skills are still there. What is the hardest sport to transition into?It was volleyball to basketball because in volleyball, all I do is jump and basketball you have to run up and down the court. Basketball to track isnt that hard because all I do is throw (in track).
How did it feel to make the state track meet?It was awesome. It was an awesome experience. Just seeing all the fans around. I thought I did okay. Its just a really good feeling when you get down, actually, on the track. You just feel everybody looking at you and cheering and its amazing. I look forward to doing it again.
What are your plans for this summer?This summer, Im doing AAU basketball and, actually, Im going to start working with (track) Coach (Robert) Griffin to throw because I dont throw year-round, I just throw during the school year. I figured if I throw year-round, Ill be a lot better than I am this year.
Do you have time for hobbies?I cook. I like cooking. So, in the morning when I get up, thats my hobby. I like to cook. I listen to music a lot. Thats actually what keeps me going is my music. Friends, sometimes. They know what Im doing, so they understand.
What is your favorite thing to cook?My favorite thing to cook is a dinner meal. Its got barbecue chicken baked barbecue chicken corn bread, red beans and rice and some Kool-Aid.
What do you cook for breakfast?I cook big breakfasts. If its a good day, I cook biscuits, I cook waffles, I cook pancakes, I cook sausage and bacon. I cook eggs omelets and scrambled. I make orange juice and maybe a little bit of hot dogs for younger brother and sisters Ive got a big family.
