How are your off-season workouts going?

Good. I'm going through off-season with the team at Palo Duro everyday. On the weekends, I shoot, lift weights and play games at Amarillo Community College. Trying my best to be ready to compete when I move to Austin June 1st.

What did you do best as a senior on the court?

What are your expectations for the summer workouts in Austin?
