It’s just amazing coming back from a knee injury like I said, I wasn’t expecting to sign to a four-year college. I learned that you can’t give up. Coach Rogers told me my first game back at PRC, she was like, you can’t give up. I’m going to take you slow, and Coach Rogers has been there through the whole way. She pushed me slow. I just started back slotting in the playoffs last year. It’s a blessing honestly. I’ve been playing since I was four years old. ”
