Q: Who is the person in your life that has helped you succeed the most?
A: My brother Jaden.
Q: What is the best advice you were ever given when it comes to your sport?
A: You’re not going to have your best appearance every game, just live it out and move on to the next.
Q: Describe your pre-game ritual and your favorite post-game meal.
A: For my pre-game ritual, I like to listen to music on the way to the field, stretch, get prepared for my game, throw to stretch my arm out and get it loose. Then I take some outfield reps so I can feel good about myself during the game and know the situations. Lastly, I just like to think about how I can be the most successful in this game and what I need to do to be more prepared. Post-game meal: Chick-fil-A, you can never go wrong with that.
Q: Song you currently can’t stop listening to?
A: “Heyy” by Lil Baby.
