Sports Spotlight students are selected by athletic officials from Maui County high schools and these profiles are compiled by the sports department of The Maui News. The Alexander & Baldwin Foundation makes a $200 donation in honor of each student athlete to their high school's athletic fund.
SPORTS LESSONS: "Being an athlete has taught me to be a more disciplined person, how to work with a team, how to have good physical fitness, good sportsmanship, respect for others on and off the field and most of all never to give up on anything in life."
