What was the highlight of your season? The Manchester West game when we won at the buzzer. It was awesome to celebrate with teammates and in a great atmosphere.

Who was the unsung hero of your team? Josh Leclaire. He worked hard everyday in practice and brought great energy to the games. He helped everyone to push themselves to the best of their ability.

What was the biggest surprise of the season? Our foreign exchange student, Eero, who came from Finland for the year. He ended up being a huge contributor on our team and helping us in numerous ways. It was great playing with a new teammate and getting to know him.

If you could improve high school basketball in New Hampshire, what would you do? Implement a shot clock, because I think it would speed up the pace of the games and make them more exciting.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently? I tripped walking down the last couple stairs at school because I was in a rush and almost fell. It was pretty embarrassing.

Describe the color yellow to someone who is blind. Warm and like spring.

A penguin walks into your school wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he there? I really have can’t imagine what he would say but I would definitely try to get it on video.

If you could have dinner with any three people, who would it be? And what would you serve? Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute, and Kevin Malone from “The Office.” I would serve steak and mashed potatoes.

If you got a $1 million to start a company, what would you do? I would open a “Pepi’s Pizza” in Concord, which is my favorite pizza place of all time.

If you had to go on a talent show, what would you do? The dance from “Napolean Dynamite.”

What inspires you? My parents because they both have great work ethics and motivate me to reach my full potential.
