Why did you choose this word to represent another part of you?
"I chose 'Big Brother' because my little sister, Jessica, is a big part of my life, whether she knows it or not. I learned how to be a good big brother from my older brother, Jacob, and since going to college my little sister has had no big brother presence at home. I try to do my best to check in with her and make sure she’s on the right path. Being a teenage girl in today’s world is not easy and any way I can help her out goes a long way."

What stereotypes do you experience and want broken down, as a student-athlete?
"I think that a lot of people may think that student athletes are here solely because of sports and that they often aren’t as smart because of it. We’re all here for a main priority of academics.
