EYT Media: What question do you wish I would have asked you? And what is the answer to it?
AS: I wish you would have asked me what I love most about being in sports. I love all of the friendships that I have made and the opportunities I had had to work with different coaches. Sports are a big part of who I am and they have taught me things like having a good work ethic, teamwork, achieving goals and time management. Sports have allowed me to travel, and it keeps me busy.
