* your favorite motto

FM: “This is my dream a lot.”

* superstitions before games

FM: “I like to listen to the same song before games. I might wear the same boxers as the game before if I had a good game.”

* how sports has impacted your life

FM: “It has impacted my life a lot, because of the area I live in. It’s very easy to get caught up in the streets and do something bad.”

* what keeps you motivated in sports

FM: “I want to be the best in basketball.”

* a failure that you experienced, which has made you a better athlete today

FM: “I would say . . . I can’t think of anything. I just have to stay grounded and be humble.”

* going to Trenton Catholic Academy

FM: “The academic side of TCA is very good. Actually, it helps a lot of the students to have teachers that are always there for you.”

FM: “I started to play around 6-years-old. And I haven’t stopped playing since that time.”

* your favorite player of all-time

FM: “LeBron James.”

* any special meaning to his jersey number [10]

FM: “It is a number that I’ve always had. I used to have No. 1, but then I wanted to humble myself, so I decided to add the zero and become the number 10.”

* why he chose Drexel University

FM: “I decided to go to Drexel, because it’s a great academic school. Plus, they are a very talented basketball team.”

* playing for head coach Bruiser Flint at Drexel

FM: “It’s going to be good. He’s a good coach, who will only make me a better player. I’m looking forward to playing for him.”
