What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Villanova? “I visited many schools throughout my sophomore year and the summer after. I liked a few schools a lot, but when I spent a couple nights at Villanova during the Villanova 150 camp this past summer I knew it was the school for me. Villanova was the right fit for me with a great balance of academics and athletics.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for season? “This past season was somewhat of a rebuilding year for us; we were an extremely young team having three sophomore attack starting. Because we are returning the bulk of our offense, only losing one starting midfielder and adding some serious depth, we are ready to be a powerhouse in the Independent School League.”
Other schools considered? Georgetown, Syracuse, Fairfield, Drexel
Thank Yous: “I want to thank my Mom and Dad for going through the process with me and supporting me the whole way, I know I could not have done it without them.
“I want to give a huge thank you to my coach, the head of the Top Gun Fighting Clams, Justin Walker who has done everything in his power for me during the college process. A big thank you goes to my high school coach, Tim Sullivan, who has supported me since my first day on campus. I also want to thank Coach Troy Peters and Coach Tim O’Brien who have played a big role in coaching me throughout the Clams’ program.”
