of something bigger and how to think on the court in a different way.
What words of advice or encouragement would you share with younger athletes? No matter what sport you pursue, or anything really, if you want something go get it
you need to work everyday.
Do you have a saying or motto that you live your life by or maybe a team slogan? Working hard is my slogan, not too specific, but you get the meaning.

or not, we have grown really close this season.

always supporting us, I feel like I can’t go anywhere in Northville without somebody talking to me about basketball.
What team do you want to beat to win the Sectional Final or other tournaments this year? We hopefully want the opportunity just to win a sectional title, and we believe we are
capable, and we will play anyone we have to. I don’t think we should be scared of anyone.
