What was the highlight of your season? The highlight of the season was having a game after the day my dad passed and seeing all of my teammates come out in “Sullivan Strong” t-shirts.

Who was the unsung hero of your team? Kira is the unsung hero. She was always everywhere. She could be a striker but still be helping out on defense, and she never once let it get to her head, she’s confident but not cocky.

What was the biggest surprise of the season? The biggest surprise of the season was knowing that if we had won one more game, we could’ve been the 6th or 7th seed and holding a first round home game.

Do you have any sports superstitions? If so, what are they? Before every game, after yelling “1,2,3 PANTHERS” we would all lean in really close and say “FSU.”

What’s your favorite pre-game meal? I don’t really eat before games, but if I did it would probably be something like mozzarella sticks.

If someone was going to make a movie of your season, who would play your coach? Who would play you? If someone were to play my coach, it would be Justin Timberlake in the NSYNC days. If someone were to play me, it would probably be the young Lindsey Lohan.

If you could go to any sporting event, what would it be? I would go to a Red Sox championship game against the Yankees.

If you weren’t playing your sport in the fall, what would you be doing? If I weren’t playing a sport in the fall, I would probably be spending time with friends and family before I head off to basic training the next fall.

What’s your favorite app? Definitely Snapchat.

What’s your most-played song right now? My most played song right now is “Changing Tides” by The Fray.

Do you have any must-see television shows? My must-see TV shows are “The Walking Dead,” “Greys Anatomy” and “Gossip Girl.”

If you could have dinner with any three people, who would it be? And what would you serve? If I could have dinner with any three people it would be David Ortiz, Tom Brady, and my dad. I would probably serve taco salad with a side of Cheez-Its , those were my dad’s favorite.

If you got a $1 million to start a company, what would you do? I would start a company for only girls sporting items and I would make everything way better than the guys sporting items.

If you had to go on a talent show, what would you do? I would sing “Over the Rainbow” with my friend Katie. We both stink at singing.
