Why did you choose BYU? “I love the culture and work ethic that they have established at BYU. Also, I have been going to their summer camps for 8 years and love the atmosphere there.”
Outlook for your High School season? “Things look good for Lone Peak this year. We have a very disciplined defense anchored by Preston Thatcher and an explosive offense led by Jake Stout. We play a lot of really good teams this year so it will be exciting to see how we match up with them.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my parents, coaches, and teammates for all that they did for me. My Mom and Dad have always been there to support me and encourage me to do my best.
“If it weren’t for the Starz program my game wouldn’t be where it is today. I have gone and played all over the country because of them and have had the privilege to go against some of the best players in the country.
“I am thankful for all of my teammates and coaches on the Utah Starz that I have been able to grow up with and the time we have spent together. But I want to give a special thanks to Coach Randy Stout who passed away my sophomore year. Coach was one of the funniest guys I knew and I always looked up to him as a second father to me. He taught me to be tough and to not lose sight of what really matters in life.
“I would also like to thank Matt Jungemann for the impact he will forever have on my life. Matt played for Juan Diego Catholic High School and tragically passed away on the 24th of March this year. His witty jokes and laid back attitude would always lighten my day. He showed me how to be friends with everyone and love those around you. I am so grateful for Randy and Matt and the opportunity I had to spend time with them, and really get to know them.”
