How many years have you been playing your fave sport? 14 years
What is your fave sporty moment or memory?

It takes a lot of discipline and hard work, and your sport has to be something you are willing to do, and just something you live for.
What lessons have you learned about work ethic from your sport?
Train as hard as you can and make certain days where it is all about motocross, and just be the best you can be at all times you are on the bike.
How do you balance school and sports?
School is number 1, to balance both I just think I can't ride or anything unless I do well at school.
List some awards or accolades you’ve received.
Plaques and trophies are pretty much what they hand out. I also get contingency money.
James Stewart and Travis Pastrana

I like to shop, but that's pretty much it.
