Q. What are some of your favorite things about Clemson?A. My favorite thing about Clemson is the “at home” feeling it has along with the whole family atmosphere. Out of all the schools I visited while I was being recruited, Clemson was the only one that felt that way to me. I really like that.
Q. What are some of your favorite sports or sports teams to watch?A. Even though I don’t watch a ton of sports, I actually like college sports as opposed to professional sports. I really like college soccer and college football. I enjoy college track and professional track as well.
Q. What kind of sports did you play growing up?A. I played football as a kid. I played wide receiver and defensive end.
Q. Do you have any siblings?A. I have two siblings, an older brother and an older sister. My sister went to a community college near where we’re from in Miami, and my brother goes to Charleston Southern.
Q. What do your parents do for a living?A. My mom is a kindergarten teacher and my dad has his own company. He does construction work as well. In regards to that, he also works as a shop steward.
Q. What are your career plans once you graduate?A. If I don’t go the professional route with track & field, then I plan to attend dental school to become an orthodontist.
