Who has had the biggest impact on your life on and off the basketball court?
CS: Honestly, the biggest impact on my life so far has to be the people at my high school (private HS) in Reedley as far as my life goes. It truly helps learning about Jesus Christ each and everyday. Basketball someone who had the biggest impact on me has to be Glenn Gaines, when I was losing vision of the toughness and grit I once had in New Orleans, he ignited my passion to be a tough hard nose player. In school the biggest impact I had was my ap world history teacher mr. Thomas and my teacher last year mr. Kantor. Both teachers pushed me a tremendous amount in the classroom and they showed me how hard I could push myself. It made want to learn more and more.
