How long have you been playing basketball?

“Brandon Yoder. I’ve been playing for Coach Yoder since sixth grade, and he has really grown to be a father figure to me even though he and his family moved away after last season.”

Talk a little about your time being on the FHC basketball team

“Last year we were definitely stacked; there were a lot of sophomores, and we all got along really well, which made us have a great time. Coach Yoder and Coach Jenkins coached us last year, and they were really motivating for us. Introducing Coach Maddie and having her and Jenkins coach together is really great. Maddie brings a very positive aspect to things and is always cheering for us and helping us on our bad days; she’s grown to be like a mom to us. I am also the oldest on the team this year, which puts a lot on me to step up and be a leader because last year I was just a freshman on JV, so this year a lot has definitely changed.”
