1. What is your proudest athletic moment? My proudest moment was being able to participate in the first team All- State game last year as a junior. It felt amazing playing with some of the best players in Kentucky and I was extremely proud of myself for the hard work I had done that season.

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? I don’t have a particular meal. I can usually eat a lot before a game and not feel sick but I like to eat pasta the night before and then before the game I’ll eat maybe a peanut butter bagel with a granola bar.

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? I would chose the song “Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw. Any country song would be my “go to” song because that is basically all I listen to.

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? I look up to Christiano Ronaldo because he is an extremely talented soccer player. I’ve always loved watching him play and seeing his footwork and all of the moves he does on people. He’s not only an amazing soccer player but he is also an amazing guy off the field. He gives a lot of his money to charity and helped the people that were affected by a tsunami in South East Asia.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? “You gotta put your past behind you. Look, kid. Bad things happen, and you can’t do anything about it. Right?” – The Lion King

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? As a team, we pray before every game and even our cheer has a prayer in it. We are constantly keeping God in our mind and before big games we go to Church together as a team. When I play, I know that God is watching over me and he is going to keep my team and I safe and not get injured.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Scooby Doo.

8. All-time favorite board game? The game of Life.

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? IPhone- I am constantly on Instagram.

10. What is your favorite local restaurant? Shogun.

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? The Biggest Loser.

12. What is your greatest fear? My biggest fear is not succeeding in life. I have my goals mapped out and I am scared that my life isn’t going to go the way I want it to and that I won’t get the job I like. I am scared that I won’t become the person I want to be.

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? I am an extremely determined person and I work as hard as I can in school and in soccer. I am not scared of trying new things and I love to do the things people are scared of doing and I love proving people wrong.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Nachos from Qdoba and chips and queso

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? I love practice time because I like being with my team and improving and working hard to get better

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? Audge – People on my team started calling me this because it was a shorter way to say my name.

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? I love to volunteer anywhere with animals because I really love animals. I volunteer with my mom to clean the cat’s cages for the Shamrock Foundation and we go at least once a week and clean for about an hour and a half. We also foster a bunch of cats and we usually have eight or nine cats at our house every week.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can play the trumpet- I used to be in the band from fifth to eighth grade.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would travel forward because I am very curious as to what the future is going to hold. I want to see what it is going to look like and what people wear, do, and what new things have been invented.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask Mia Hamm how she got to where she is today and how she became such an amazing soccer player.
