Why do you wear the number nine?


“I don’t really have a specific reason. It’s just the number that I have always worn in every sport that I have played. I wore nine playing baseball, football and basketball from middle school on.”


If you aren’t going to practice, playing in a game or working out, what would fans find Kendyll Pope doing on an off day?”
