Omari Banks '21

What is your favorite athletic memory as a Tatnall Hornet?
My favorite memory is in my junior year when we were ranked 24th in the playoffs and ended up being the only team in Delaware’s history to defeat the 9th seed.

What is the most important lesson playing sports at Tatnall taught you?
The most important lesson Tatnall has me is to trust your teammates because you will never be able to do it by yourself. You are going to need your teammates.

What was the biggest difficulty you faced in your athletic career, and how did you overcome it?
The biggest challenges I faced was I tried to do everything on my own instead of trusting my teammates. I overcame it by allowing myself to trust my teammates when they had the ball in their hands, which helped us go on our winning streak.

If you could say one thing to younger Hornet athletes, what would it be?
One thing I would tell Hornet Athletes is to constantly work at your craft and enjoy the process as you push yourself everyday at whatever sport you play.

Who is a teammate or coach you would like to spotlight, and how did they help you as a Tatnall athlete? 
I don’t have a specific teammates, I thank all my teammates and coaches for helping me out on the court whether pushing me everyday or staying after practice to put in extra work with me.
