My favourite professional sports team is the Ottawa Senators, and my favourite player is Mike Fisher.
3. If you could achieve one thing/goal in sports, what would it be?
One goal I would like to achieve is winning the Schmalz Cup this year.
4. Who has been your biggest sports influence and why?
My biggest influence would definitely be my dad, he has been the one over the past 18 years driving me around everywhere, making sure i had all the stuff i needed, and he pushed me to the best of my abilities. I would not be where I am today without him.
5. What do you love most about playing sports?
I love the competition and intensity of the game. Its also a great way to meet new people.
