1. Tell us about where you are from, when you started playing basketball, and what brought you to Emmaus.

I am from Hutchinson Kansas. I started to play basketball when I was in Middle School with all of my close friends. What interested me most about Emmaus was the rich tradition of teaching the truth about the Bible. I was very interested in the one year Bible Certificate, and wanted to be challenged by professors.


2. What is your major?

My major is Biblical Studies.


3. What is your favorite memory on the court (or involving basketball)?

My favorite moment on the court was the final game of last year when Paul Ruter was our leading scorer for the team. We were all very excited for him, and he made a lot of shots! It was cool seeing a guy with gray hair taking to younger guys.


4. Favorite junk food?

My favorite junk food is definitely brownies with ice cream.


5. Favorite movie?

The Grinch, only because everyone quotes it ALL the time.


6. Favorite verse/passage and why?

Romans 8:26-39 because it shares about the victory we have in Christ, and reminds us that Christ is on our side interceding for us in Heaven. “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, “For Your sake we are being put to death all day long; We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”


7. Tell us why you feel students should come support Emmaus' sports teams. 

Students should come and support Emmaus’ sports teams because the players love the crowd cheering for them! The players put in a lot of hard work, time, and effort to win games, and would love to see the student body, faculty, and staff come out and support your teams!
