Any stupid human tricks or abilities: I can hum and whistle at the same time and I can also wiggle my ears.
Famous relatives: The most famous relative would probably be my dad. I feel like everywhere we go someone's tapping him on the shoulder and talking to him.
Favorite part of Hanover outside of class: The beauty of Hanover's campus has always intrigued me. I come from a suburb near central Indiana called Brownsburg, and although it was small to begin with, it has began growing rapidly the past few years. And as much as I love it there, I have always been a fan of living far from the hustle and bustle; out in the country, enjoying the beauty of nature.
Who do you pattern your game after: I don't pattern my game off of anyone in particular. I simply try to be a supportive, encouraging, and humble teammate!
Who is your role model: My role model is my dad, Michael Smith. He was the one who first got me into running. He never pushed me or forced me to run; he simply guided me to it. And ever since then I haven't stopped. My dad is a triathlete and I aspire to be like him someday; an athlete known and loved by so many, someone so humble, and a disciple spreading God's word everywhere he goes.
