Q: How did you get involved in Kenyon basketball?

A:  Coach Helfant recruited me at an UA (Upper Arlington) tournament my sophomore year of high school, and I fell in love with Kenyon, the team and the program.  So it was a perfect fit.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about the team?

A:  Our team is like a family.  Coach Helfant has really implemented an incredible program where everyone depends on each other and holds each other accountable.  We all love each other and work really, really well together.  Team chemistry is really important to our program.  It’s just a really fun team to be on.

Q: What would you change about the team if you could?

A:  That’s a tough question.  I think the toughest part is that that season is so long. Winter sports last like two or three months basically, comparatively we’re in season from October to March. So it’s a solid five months.  It can be kind of a grind, and we’re here all of winter break which is tough.  But I love basketball, and I love that it’s long, because it gives me more time to play. It’s not something I’d change, but it’s the hardest part.

Q: What’s your favorite memory of being on the team?

A: My favorite memory…hmmm…We have a lot of fun together.  And winter break is fun because we’re all here by ourselves, it’s just us and the boy’s team pretty much.  So, we have some really fun times.  And we we went to Florida two years ago, and we’re going to Nashville over break, and those trips are always so fun. But, winter break’s fun because it kind of feels like we’re professional athletes, because all we do is play basketball, eat, play more basketball, and hang because we don’t have any work!

Q: Standout moment on the court?

A: Probably when we beat Denison for the first time.  It was my sophomore year at home, and we beat them by like 30 points.  And before that we hadn’t beat them in like five years, I think?  So, that was a huge moment, it was the best game. And our crowd was amazing, I love our fans, they’re so wonderful

Q: Favorite horror movie?

A: I love scary movies! If I was going to go for suspenseful movies, probably Silence of the Lambs.  And for gore probably Saw. But I’m not into gore, so I close my eyes!
