"Maverick Moore is definitely the film professor that I'm closest with. When I was in his class, there were only 12 of us, so it was easy to get to know him and his personality. ... He's really good about sitting me down one-on-one and telling you like what you need to improve on, what you did really good at. So he's not just like bashing on you. He's definitely going to help you grow, and I really appreciate that."

"I looked up top pre-med schools in Texas, and Baylor was there. I was like, ‘Hey, let's go tour it.’ I came here and it was amazing. This campus is beautiful. Being from small-town Missouri, I had never seen anything like this, nothing this wonderful. So I came, and I'm like, ‘Okay. This is where I want to be, this is where I need to be.’ I love it. I love it."

"For football and engineering or just academics in general, you get out what you put in, right? So athletically, however hard you work, obviously that shows up in how you play or how much you lift during workouts. And then academically, that shows up in your grades. So definitely I would say give 100% in everything that you do, whether that's academics or athletics. Because you think, 'College, obviously it's the best four years of life.' But it's really dependent on what you put into college is how much you get back."
