Q: What has the experience at MCH and being on the MCH bulldog basketball team meant to you?
A: Being at MCH has helped me a lot, not just being able to play basketball but they helped me prepare for life. I want to thank my teammates at MCH, Coach Henry and my dad for helping me become a better player. I also want to thank my uncle for his support. I can remember four years ago when I first started playing basketball for Coach Henry, I did not know anything. Over time I grew as a basketball player and a person.

Q: What does it mean to you to receive a scholarship to play at Temple College?
A: I am excited about the opportunity to play for a college who leads the nation in points per game. I plan on playing hard for Coach Johnson. I am also excited about being close to my family and in a college atmosphere.
