High School team’s outlook for 2017 season? “IMG will be a strong contender on the national level.”
Thank You: “I’m so grateful to my parents Tim and Pam, and family who has always given me their endless support.
“I would like to thank Coach Shatz for giving me the opportunity to attend IMG because there is no better place in the country to develop as a student athlete. There were many coaches and mentors that played a part in getting me to where I am today. (Alonzo Miller, Russ Tuttle, Rich Andriole, Danny Gray, Rob Schmeling, Tom Coons, Kyle Mates, Tracey Kelusky, Greg Bice, Matt Lee, Nic Bell and Mike Burnett) There are always those special coaches that make it click in their own special way.
“A big shout out to Ken Miller of the Long Island Sting for leading the way. He flipped the switch last summer and helped me exploit my athleticism. My current coaches at IMG (Bill Shatz, Mark Burnam, Jason Bosso, Jason Levesque, Craig Lepiane) have been unbelievable in taking my game to another level. All of my teachers along the way that have so graciously and unselfishly imparted their knowledge and wisdom upon me. Thanks to all.”
