• Favorite sports moment – overall: “It was watching Chris O’Hare of Tulsa University racing the mile in college. The guy ran so controlled and relaxed. I wanted to become a miler in Oklahoma.”

• Goals: “I hope to lead the team in some races this upcoming seasons, break a school record, All-GAC, All-American Academic and my ultimate goal is for my school and the rest of northwestern Oklahoma to remember my name.”
