Handley High School 17-year-old senior
Sport: Basketball. Position: Forward
Parents: Sherri Lattimore
What do you love about basketball: I love meeting new people and playing with friends and family.
Most memorable moment in basketball: Catching my first dunk. It was this year in our [recreational] tournament in Harrisonburg. It was a steal and I split the 'D,' got the ball and dunked the ball.
Most embarrassing moment in basketball: It's probably air-balling a 3[-pointer]. It was wide open, air-balling a 3.
Most difficult moment in basketball: For me, it would probably be conditioning that's the hardest. We run a lot. I'd say it's 27s up-and-down the court.
Three people you can have dinner with, dead or alive: LeBron James, because I like how on the court how he is a good player to his teammates and how off the court he is a good player to his teammates, too; Devin Booker, I try to play like him; Kevin Durant, he's just a good player on and off the court.
Biggest athletic influence: Russell Westbrook, both of us have jump shots and we get to the bucket easy.
Who’s your favorite teacher: Mr. [Galen] Westman, because he helps me out when I need it [in English] and he's always there.
Favorite athlete: Devin Booker
Favorite sports team: Los Angeles Lakers
Favorite movie: “Friday”
Favorite TV show: “Power”
Favorite song: There's a lot of them. I'll say it's probably “Austin Powers” by YNJ
Favorite food: Chicken at Chick-fil-A.
Worst thing you’ve eaten: A rotten tomato. I was at a restaurant one day and I got a salad. I guess the tomato wasn't good and I ate it. Ever since then, I don't eat salads or tomatoes.
Plans after high school: I definitely want to go to college. I want to study cybersecurity. All of my family and friends say that cybersecurity is the way to go. I just decided to try it out. I also want to play basketball in college.
