In 2009, she won the Robert Bradbury Award, was named to the Ronald McDonald House All-Star Basketball Team, and was Wayne County player of the year in soccer and basketball.

 

Collier played varsity basketball and volleyball from 1998 to 2001 and ran varsity track for two years. He went on to play basketball for two years at SUNY Cortland. In the last five years, he has coached a girls charter high school basketball team in Newark, New Jersey, and organized and led a basketball training camp for middle school youth in Brooklyn, New York.
