  • What were some things you learned during the camp?
    "I learned that I need to be more comfortable instead of trying to do it so fast. Slow down and be more under control. And I need to be more smooth with my back pedal."

    Were there any drills that were new to you?
    "Most of the drills I have done before but the last one was new. We did a 180 degree turn and turn three different ways. It was longer that I was used to, so it was more intense."

    What camps are you attending this summer?
    "I was at Memphis last Sunday. I went to this one. And I'm not sure what other camps that I am going to. My coach will call me and let me know what camps we are going to, then I go to them."

    What schools are looking at you?
    "A lot of schools. Memphis is looking at me. Delta State. USM talked to me. I have been up here for a visit and talked to the coach. They are evaluating me. Cincinnati and South Alabama."
