BOISE, Idaho - As part of BroncoSports.com’s preview of Boise State volleyball we are featuring each player on a 14 day count down to the first serve against Gonzaga at 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 29, in Bronco Gym to start the Northwest Challenge. We are starting with our seniors and working down the list by class.
Q: Why did you choose Boise State?
A: I chose Boise State because of the volleyball program, but not only that, Boise is a great place to live with plenty of activities to do. Plus the people here are great and there’s lots of support for Bronco athletics in the surrounding communities.
Q: Who is your hero in life?
A: My hero would definitely have to be my mother, she’s taught me a lot about life and what truly matters.
Q: What song gets you pumped up before a match?
A: Sail by Awolnation Remix
Q: What’s been your favorite thing about Boise so far?
A: My favorite thing about Boise is that it’s not too big and not too small, it’s the best of both worlds.
Q: Who has been the most influential figure in your life so far?
A: The most influential figure is my grandpa. No matter what, he always had a smile on his face. If I ever needed someone to talk with or laugh until my cheeks hurt, it was him. He was a very hard worker. Live life with a smile, a great attitude, and be thankful.

A: Beyond college I want to find a successful job, do some traveling, and find my prince charming.
