What are your career plans?

I have not fully yet decided, but something involved with sports.

Why did you come to William Woods?

I came ultimately for soccer, but now the high level of education has made me realize that I’m here to create a career for myself.

What is one word you’d use to describe William Woods?


What has been your favorite class here so far?

Film Studies. It allowed us to watch hit movies and analyze them in great detail. We got to see movies differently, but also have a class where you can take snacks and watch a film.

What has been your favorite LEAD event?

Probably de-stressing with Pups. You get to play with puppies and get a LEAD point.

What do you wish you had known when you first started at William Woods?

That nearly everyone here loves horses (yes, I was never told this is a popular equestrian school).

What do you wish more people knew about you?

The kind of background and experience I have had with soccer.

Have you ever had a fun nickname?

The closest is ‘Tree’ because people thought I was like Groot on Guardians of the Galaxy. Still do not know why this happened.

What is your favorite thing in your room?

Bed. I love my bed, A LOT!

What is your favorite spot on campus?

The soccer field

Where do you like to study?

The basement in the library. It’s really quiet and not many people go there, so you can get into your work properly.

What is a typical weekday like for you at William Woods?

Wake up, get some coffee, go to my classes, lunch, maybe another class, practice, ice bath, dinner, study or relax with friends. Pretty simple days.

What is your favorite place in Fulton? Why?

Saults Drug Store – contrary to the name, they do bomb milkshakes in there.

What has surprised you the most about going to school at William Woods?

The friendliness and forwardness of all students and staff.

What has been the most challenging part of college?

Waking up for 8 a.m. classes, definitely.

What is one word your friends would use to describe you?


What is your favorite memory of your time here at William Woods so far?

Probably being told by teammates (because I had no phone) that I had been awarded NAIA Player of the Week, which (I think) was the first time in men’s soccer here, and receiving a congratulatory email from Dr. Jahnae Barnett about it.

Who is your favorite faculty or staff member?

Dr. Bob Scott. He’s one of the smartest people I have met and he sounds controversial with a lot of stuff, but he’ll question whatever you say just to see if you can support your argument whether he agrees with you or not.

What is your superpower?

Mind reading!
