• Most memorable game in your career so far?

By far winning ending the drought by winning the first Catholic League Basketball title in 21 years for U of D Jesuit.  Nothing beats that feeling of bringing home a well-deserved title against your rival.

• Colleges that you would like to attend?

No target schools for me really. I just want to find a place that is the right fit for me, helps me improve my game, and most importantly gives me an excellent education and puts me closer to achieving my goals.

• Colleges that have shown interest in you so far?

Albion, Lake Forest College, Washington University in St. Louis, and Case Western Reserve University

• What makes you unique from other players at your position?

My size by far.  I’m pretty undersized for my position, but what I lack in size, I make up for in skill, effort, and energy.  I pride myself in making the hustle plays that not many make, and I’m a defense first type of guy.  Also, I am an excellent rebounder.

• Strengths and areas you are improving in?

Strengths: Rebounding, off the ball defense, energy, and hustle

Areas of Improvement: ball handling, and jump shot range

• How did the offseason go?

A lot better than I planned. Got stronger, faster, and improved on all areas of my game.

• Goals for the upcoming season?

Beat Cleveland St. Ignatius and Toledo St. John’s, back-to-back Central Division Regular season champs, back-to-back A-B Catholic League Champs, repeat district champs, make it past regionals, and finally a trip to the Breslin Center for state playoffs.

• What role do you see your self-having this year for your team?

Team capitan, top 5 in scoring, and top 3 in rebounding.

• What will a coach be getting out of you at the next level?

A kid with great character, and does nothing but gives his energy and heart for the sport he loves.  Plus, one who puts his academics first, works hard, and is just a great team player.

• What will go into your decision about choosing a college?

Location, academic program at the College/University, and whether or not the school has the major I intend on studying in school.

• Most influential person in your life? Why?

By far it is my parents. Both of them grew up in Uganda, a country in Africa, and came over to America for education and to live a better life. The fact that they worked so hard for me and my brothers to live a good life helps motivate me to work as hard as they did, and to achieve all of my dreams.

• Legacy you want to leave at your school?

Part of the class who changed the culture of sports at U of D Jesuit.

• Where do you see yourself in 15 years?

Hopefully finished with medical school, and a doctor of some sorts working in sports medicine.

• Highlight Tape

I referee soccer and I’m a member of the National Honor Society.  Also, people say that I am a really good dodgeball player.
