C oach's words of advice for me: You have 24 hours to get over a game and 24 seconds to get over a kick. That was from a coach at an eighth-grade kicking camp.

F avorite type of music: Pretty much anything, but I really like country and Imagine Dragons.

G irls playing football, have you been more accepted over the years? Definitely. Everyone has been really accepting. As a senior, more people look up to you whether you are a girl or a guy.

H ow did you get interested in kicking the football for the Wolves? It was the only way my parents would let me play football.

I nteresting thing about me away from football: I like kayaking and fishing, anything outside.

J oker on the team: All the guys make practice very interesting, but Brenden Abrams and Rhett Mayton are the two funniest.

K ey to juggling sports and academics: Diligence and don't be afraid to pass up a party. I skipped the prom to study for the SAT.

W hat did you think of Mo'ne Davis, the 13-year-old female pitcher from Philadelphia who graced the cover of Sports Illustrated and had national TV interviews after throwing a shutout at the Little League World Series? I think that it is fantastic. I hope she continues to pitch and has continued success.

X box, PlayStation or Wii? None of the above, I do not have time.

Y ear I was born: 1996.
