Advice to freshman: “You only have four years of high school, so do everything that you possibly can in those years. Try all kinds of different activities and sports, be involved and push yourself. Don’t let other people discourage you from taking difficult classes or trying new things. Also, even if you are unathletic, join a team because you will become very close to your teammates and coach.”
