What has been your favorite moment at UAB?
“Making the jumbotron with my best friend, Skylar, at Regions Field during one of the Blazer baseball games was a hilarious moment.”
If you did not play soccer, what sport would you play?
“If I didn't play soccer, I think I would want to play either volleyball or basketball. The problem is I'm way too short to do either of those at the collegiate level.”
What are your plans after you finish up at UAB?
“The plan right now is to go on to law school somewhere closer to home and continue my education so that I can practice environmental law in the future.”
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
“I've always wanted to tour Europe. Just hit all those countries that have so much history and be able to learn new things and learn about the different cultures and lifestyles we don't get to experience in America.”
What is one thing people do not know about you?
“I cracked my skull when I was six years old. I fell getting onto a merry-go-round and busted the front of my head wide open at a softball game.”
The team won 11 games last year and advanced to the C-USA tournament for the first time since 2009, talk about how the success and turnaround from last year helps the team in moving forward this year?
“Getting the taste of winning last season only makes us hungrier for more. We use last year’s success to push us to work harder and make this year even better than the last. Experiencing the conference tournament was unreal and now we'll work to not only make it there, but win it all.”
