Quotable: "I couldn't be where I am today without the hard practices and coaches that encourage me to work harder each day, along with my parents who have been there and support me through everything. But when it comes down to it, practice isn't practice unless you improve. How can you improve if you don't give 110 percent 100 percent of the time?"
