Who is your funniest teammate and why?
Peyton has to be probably one of the funniest people ever. She has the funniest ugly cry anyone has ever seen. Not to mention she just knew when to funny faces or say dumb things to make me laugh during practice and games when i needed it.
Most memorable game or athletic event: Senior night has to be a pretty memorable game for me. Being from Texas, my mom isn't at my games, and not having my biggest fan at games has been rough. So her being at senior night to watch me play in my last college game was memorable.
What is the greatest lesson you've learned from being a student-athlete?
The greatest lesson I've learned from being a student-athlete is that sometimes life isn't easy. It doesn't always go the way we plan, want , or maybe even hoped it would. No matter what happens or is going on you never stop pushing, you never give up.
3 Words Used to describe your experience: I can use one.. Unforgettable!
