Q&A with Perry’s Sarah Davison – Presented by Stillwater Medical Clinic of Perry

By: Hunter Ferguson

Perry basketball player Sarah Davison recently spoke to VYPE.

VYPE: What are your personal goals for the year?

One personal goal I have for myself this year is to be a leader for my team. Because our team is so young, I want to set a good example.

VYPE: What is your favorite athletic memory?

My favorite athletic memory was my freshman year in playoffs we were down by three and I hit a buzzer-beater to send the game into overtime. This is my favorite memory because I feel like that is something that not very many people get to experience and I got to experience that feeling during my first year of high school basketball.

VYPE: What teammate has left the biggest impression on you and why?

Kennedy Hight has really left an impression on me as far as keeping me accountable and pushing me to improve. She knows when it’s time to have fun and when it’s time to be serious and leads our team with energy so I strive to be like her in many areas.

VYPE: What is your favorite part of being on this team?

My favorite part about being on this team is the friendships I’ve made. This is my first year to be with these girls and I already feel so close with them. We can have fun but we played well together and we all want the best for each other and I think that’s really important.

VYPE: Do you participate in any community service projects?

Something I did the past couple of months was help coach with the girls’ fifth-grade basketball team. I really enjoyed getting to help the girls figure out how to play together and just have fun while playing.

VYPE: What Clubs or Campus groups are you involved with and why?

I am on the student council and I’m involved in FCA. Student council is great because it gives students something to be involved in and to do things for the community. FCA is also known as Fellowship of Christian Athletes and it’s basically just athletes within the school meeting once a week just to talk about how to be a light to others through their sport.

VYPE: What has your sport taught you that you use in your daily life?

Something that basketball has taught me in life is that things don’t always go your way and some things are out of your control, but there are things you can control and that’s what needs to be focused on.

VYPE: What is the best advice that anyone has given you?

The best piece of advice that has been given to me through basketball is to never be outworked. Someone might be better than you or more talented but hard work beats talent in the end.

VYPE: Who inspires you and why?

Someone who inspires me is my dad. He always supports me no matter what and he is always pushing me to be the best that I can be.
