What will you major in/study? “I plan to study business and be apart of the 5-year MBA program.”
Why did you choose the school? “I chose Monmouth for a number of reasons. The location right next to the beach is definitely a huge upside, plus I liked the beauty of the campus itself. I am also very excited to be a part of a new program that is starting from the ground up. The school as well as Coach Brian Fisher and Coach Andrew Geison are very committed to the program and want to be successful right from the start. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for 2013? “I’m pumped for this upcoming season. I’m lucky to be a part of a very talented team with a lot of natural athletes, but also with a bunch of guys who are willing to work hard in and out of season to try and reach our main goal of a state championship season. We lost only three starting seniors from last year and we are very excited to get back at it and make Cape the powerhouse it used to be.”
Thank Yous: “I’d like to thank my High School coaches for constantly pushing me to get better every single practice, but most of all my father for working with me ever since I was little to help me improve
