Each week during the 2014-15 year beginning in late October, the Fox Valley Association will feature two student-athletes (one male and one female) from one of its 10 schools for a "Student-Athlete Spotlight" Q & A segment. The segments will be posted every Tuesday and Thursday and individuals are selected by the school.

Favorite aspect of your school: The overall togetherness and support. Everyone treats each other with respect and tries to get out and support each other in their activities or games that we are all involved in.
Favorite aspect about being involved in school activities: Being a part of a team and competing. Trying to come together as a team and improve each and every day in order to achieve a common goal.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Our Phase II Meet the Rockets event. I was part of a group that organized for our Special Olympics Basketball team to play a game against some of the staff at our school. We had skill contests, then starting lineups and each kid threw out a t-shirt to the fans, lastly we had the game. There was a great turnout of around 500 people and everyone was cheering them on the whole night. It was amazing.

What is the best advice one of your coaches has given you? Coach Bork, Coach Pronschinske (my dad), and Coach Krueger all stress how much more important team success is than individual success.
