Who''s that Illini?
I was a two-time NCAA gymnastics champion – winning the all-around and vault in 1998 – and a nine-time All-American. I was named Big Ten Gymnast of the Year in 1998, the same year I won the conference high bar crown. I was a standout in the classroom, too, earning COSIDA Academic All-America honors in 1999 and 2000 as well as being a three-time Academic All-Big Ten pick. I capped my Illini career by receiving the prestigious Big Ten Medal of Honor in 2000.
