Why IWU...

I chose IWU because this program doesn't put its primary focus on basketball, but rather on your relationship with Christ.  Every time I visited throughout the recruiting process I would hear stories about how God was working in the lives of the players rather than just their success on the court.

IAm3 is...

IAm3 is a lifestyle by which everyone should live.  By living out IAm3, you begin to experience God in bigger ways.  All of us should look to Christ as the ultimate example of selflessness and humility, and use that as the foundation to our life.

Fearless is...

Being fearless is about approaching each and every day with a goal in mind and not letting anyone or anything get in between you and that goal.  Throughout the process, you understand God is always by your side guiding you.

The IWU coaching staff is...

The coaching staff at IWU is so unique in the sense that their main focus is figuring out how to develop us as followers of Jesus.  They've made it a point to be intentional about their relationships with players, and have made a big impact on me both on and off the court.
