The Lookout Photo Editor Kaitlyn Delaney recently spoke with LCC freshman basketball player Bailey Hosford. A graduate from Holt High School, Hosford is a 5-foot-5 guard for LCC.

When did you start playing basketball?
“Kindergarten. We did like a Delhi league for Holt, and so I was on a team with all boys, because there were no other girls playing in kindergarten.”

What is your favorite thing about basketball?
“The teammates and the bonds you build with people on your team.”

Who is someone who inspires you, in the sport or out of it?
“Trafford (Hannon), our (assistant) coach. Because, just his personality and the way he carries himself, and just life in general. But also, he’s like really knowledgeable in basketball. He gives really good pointers and helps me with my IQ, because he’s really smart.”

Is there one piece of advice you’ve been given that sticks with you?
“You never know who is watching. So, even if you’re having a bad day or a bad game, still being able to cheer on your teammates and have a positive attitude helps a lot.”

Do you have any game-day routines?
“I listen to The Lumineers. And I have to eat a fruit and then I eat pancakes. And that’s my game-day routine. I have to do it.”

Do you have any personal or team goals for the rest of the season?
“Win conferences, and go far in the state tournament.”

Why did you choose LCC?
“I really like Megan (Hudson) as a coach. It’s close to home, so I’m still (near) family. And I’ve heard good things about their nursing program, and I want to become a nurse eventually, so it was a perfect fit.”

What are your plans after LCC?
“Nursing. I want to go into psychiatric nursing, because I want to help people with mental disabilities.”
