VYPE: Who inspires you and why?
Paeton: My mother, because she taught me what a goal was and how to get that goal.
VYPE: What teammate has left the biggest impression on you and why?
Paeton: Riley Hunter and Nathan Henry. They have left the biggest impression, they made going into wrestling less daunting as it seemed.
