Q: Any childhood stories about how you developed into such a good shooter?

A: All I can say is from an early age, me and my dad just used to go to the gym two, three times a day, just go in and get shots up. I'd just do it every day, get a lot of reps up.

Q: How many shots do you get up on gameday?

A: Usually I try and get roughly 300 base after shoot-around. And then before the game, I might make 100 or so. So, I mean, on typical game day, 350, 400 shots I try to make just so that I have a good rhythm going into the game.

Q: Being the son of a minister, I'm guessing there wasn't a lot you could get away with?

A: I grew up in a very strict household. There were six kids in the house, and we were all very good kids. Good people, good in school, things like that. My dad and my mom really brought me up well, gave me really good morals to set my life up. I'm in college and I still live by those morals today.

Q: I heard you were in the church choir. Is that right?

A: I was.

Q: Can you carry a tune?

A: I'm a group singer. I'm not solo. I just liked the group to kinda drown out my sound a little bit. But I was in the choir when I was in middle school.
