A: My plan after I graduate from Casper College is to move onto a four-year university. I would love to compete at the highest level of basketball, which is the Division I level; however, I want to go wherever fits me the best. My future goal is quite simple. I look forward to the day that I am a husband and a father. I want to be the best man I can be for my family someday.
