Marissa Sandlin 

Tuttle High School

With basketball season rolling into the second semester, Marissa Sandlin of Tuttle High School joined VYPE editor Brad Heath for a quick 9 Questions. 

VYPE: Marissa, what grade are you in this year and what position are you playing. 

Sandlin: I am a sophomore this year and I am a power forward. 

VYPE: Why was basketball the right sport for you? What do you love most about it?

Sandlin: I love that basketball teaches me organization and provides lots of structure to my life and the relationship I have made in basketball.

VYPE: Tell me about your teammates and what they mean to you. 

Sandlin: I love that me and my teammates are always there for each other. We really do play as a team and love to play together. We love to make each other better and push each other every day. 

VYPE: What are the goals you and your teammates have set for this season? 

Sandlin: Our expectations are to always have great defense and always work our hardest and give maximum effort all the time. We also have lots of other team goals. 

VYPE: What makes being a student-athlete at Tuttle HS special? 

Sandlin: The thing I most enjoy is all of the support. Not just even from my family or my team and coaches but the whole community. Everyone that comes to our games always has such amazing things to say and is so supportive.

VYPE: What other activities are you involved in at Tuttle? 

Sandlin: I also throw in track, and I am also apart of Tuttle STUCO and FCCLA. 

VYPE:  Do you have a favorite subject in school or a favorite teacher?

Sandlin: My favorite subject would have to be math. I don’t really have a favorite teacher I love all of them. 
 VYPE: Who has been a big influence in your life? 

Sandlin: I have a lot of big influences in my life, but I would say my dad or my older sister. They both work so hard to accomplish everything they have and what to have. If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be the basketball player I am today.

VYPE: What do you plan on doing once you graduate from high school?

Sandlin: I plan to go to college and hopefully play college basketball and work hard in school.
