"She's a good role model, even for the girls her age. They look up to her, the see how she is - She's involved in a lot of extra curricular activities, F.F.A. and stuff and she knows what she's talking about. They rely on her on and off the court," says her Coach, Brandi Krnovek.
"I try to make sure my classmates are on board with the class work. I also try to make sure my team's attitude is well - we are disciplined and dedicated to the sport or to the activity we're doing.
