Sports were such an important part of my high school experience. Honestly that’s what got me through. School was just a means to play. My brothers were the ones who inspired me to be better because if I wanted to play with them and their friends I had to play at their level—which made me a better player. My mom was my biggest fan; she never missed my games.
