What college or professional athlete inspires you and why?

My brother (Hunter Monson) was always my inspiration. He's the one who has always pushed and had always been there for me and helped me through hard times. That's part of the reason why I changed my number to 35 — so I can show my respect to him on and off the court.

What is one of your most memorable moments as an athlete?

My favorite memory was back when I was a sophomore when I played my last ever game with my two brothers, Jerry (Congious) and Hunter.

What is your favorite activity or hobby outside of sports?

My favorite thing to do outside of sports is to be with my friends, mostly because I have lots of fun hanging around my friends.

What are your plans after graduation?

My plans after graduation are to attend Hibbing Community College and become an electrician and possibly play college basketball.
