Where were you born? Tell something about your family and city.
I've lived in Elizabethtown, KY all my life and its a wonderful place. Its a small town that is easy to raise a family and get accustomed to the all away environment. My family is a close knit family who are all strong and very passionate in everything they do. I have 2 brothers one is older and the another one is younger. I'm really close to my mom without i wouldn't know what to do with myself.. she is the puzzle piece that keeps everyone together and i love her for that.

How and when you started playing basketball?
I was around 13 when i started playing organized basketball. I've always played ball outside with my best friends in front of my house on my basketball goal and i believe that is what i got me prepared for organize play.

You always played as a forward?
Yes I've always played as a forward.

Who were the players you looked when you were young?
I was always a Shaquille O'Neal and Kevin Garnett fan cause i loved the heart and passion they put in the game of basketball

Talk about your time with at Elizabethtown HS ...
My time at Elizabethtown High school was one of my best experiences. The enjoyment of being around the fans, friends, and more importantly the career I had as a basketball player there.

Was it difficult to access Western Kentucky?
Not at all. I was very familiar with the coaches and a lot of the people that went there so it was very easy to gain a lot of access

You play four years at WKU, the last three in starting five. What was the best year of the team and yours?
Most definitely my freshman year and being part of a team that went to the sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament

You played american football too. What did you learn to apply in basketball?
Football helped me be very aggressive and have that never back down mentality

You are among the 20 highest scorers in the history of your university. Did you always like score points?
It is not a matter of liking or not to score. I score points to help my team win. I want to win first of all.

You was pre-selected by the Memphis ... Is it a dream play at NBA?
Playing in the NBA is a goal and big dream of mine. I'm always determined to work hard and achieve those goals.

And think about Europe Do you know something of European basketball? Would you like to play at some particular country?
My agent Stefano Lips explained to me that playing in Uruguay will be better than in a minor European League. I want to play in Europe but in an important basketball country to further my career.

How did the opportunity to play in Uruguay?
My agent Stefano Lips suggested I would play for coach Marcelo Capalbo because he knew him personally and thought his coaching would be beneficial for my player improvement and career. Capalbo was a very good player in Europe also. I like him a lot.

Did you know some about of Uruguay or did you search in google?
A girl that played tennis at Western Kentucky University was from here and gave me a lot of input and knowledge about Uruguay

Is difficult to leave the U.S. for play at an far country?
Not at all. It is my job and you get to know new cultures and people

In Montevideo. Where are you living now?
I currently reside in Buceo. Its a nice and quite part of town

How was your adaptation to Uruguay talking about food, language and customs?
It was very tough getting use to but like i said before this is my job and i will do everything in my power to adapt to everything and enjoy it the best i can

What do you think about Atletico Aguada as a team?
My heart now is green and red. I am Aguatero. I want to move this team as far as possible in the play-offs. Love the fans, my teammates, and the coach

Do you feel the support of the fans?
Of course. I play for my fans. They come to see us win and support us great. So we have to go out there and win for them and the club.

In Uruguay, change a foreign player is common. Did they ever thought you could be cut or always trusted you could finish the LUB?
I read on the press there were rumors about releasing me. But i dont care about the press. I felt coach and club and fans had confidence in me. Here we are, all together to fight for the Championship.

About the coach. Have you ever heard talk about Marcelo Capalbo as a player? How is your relationship?
Yes, as i said before my agent told me who Capalbo was. he is a good coach and he knows the game. He helped me a lot

On the court you are a man who likes to have the ball. Does it bother you when you do not participate in the offensive?
I like to have the ball to help. It does not bother me at all as long as we Win.

What do you think you should improve your game?
I want to improve in every aspect of my game and try and do so in every practice, game, and time to myself.

It had a great season ... What are your goals here at the end?
win it all.

Do you think you can win the title? What is needed to be champions?
If i would not think I can win the title, I would stay home and play cards

For the next season. Is it possible to come back?
I want to focus on this season first. Next season is far from now.

Finally. Atletico Aguada is serving 90 years. A message for the fans ...
