1. What is your proudest athletic moment? My proudest athletic moment was defeating KCD in the 2015 regular season. It was my ?rst huge game and I was coming back from my ACL injury, it was the best game of the season that I played in.

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? Power bar and green tea.

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? My song would have to be If I Don't Have You by Tamar Braxton.  I'm always singing that song in the shower, and that song will always be my favorite.

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? I look up to my brother, Knox, who is a swimmer at Xavier University. He has always been my biggest supporter, and he is constantly pushing me to be my best every day. He always knows what to do when it comes to facing adversity after facing battles of his own. He is the greatest thing in my life.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? "There are heroes and there are legends. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die." – The Sandlot

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? It makes me realize that I should cherish all of the  moments when I am on the ?eld because it can all be taken from you in an instant

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Sponge Bob Square Pants, I've seen every episode.

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? IPhone. My favorite app is Twitter. I try to be positive whenever I post something, and I'm always trying to tweet things that will make others smile and laugh.

10. What is your favorite local restaurant? Feast Barbecue. I'm from Texas, so good barbecue is always hard to come by here in Louisville.

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? I am honestly not a huge fan of reality TV, but if I had to pick, it would be The Challenge.

12. What is your greatest fear? Spiders .

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? My best characteristic would be my humor and my sarcasm (in a funny way). I love making people laugh; it makes me happy seeing others happy.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Blue Bell chocolate ice cream.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? My favorite hour of the day would have to be right after school because that's when I am either at practice or working out at the gym. It's when I feel my best, and it lets me forget about anything negative that happened that day.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? My nickname is Mose. Another goalie on the lacrosse team with me was Mary Alyce (Furlong), so my coach at the time shortened our names down. Now, everyone at school, even teachers, call me by that now.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? My favorite place to volunteer is Gilda's Club of Louisville. It's a support group for anyone who has cancer, or who knows a family member or friend with cancer.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can talk with my mouth closed. It still weirds me out.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would travel forward to see where I am in 20 years.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would pick Bill Gates and ask him what the key to success is.
