What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Michigan? “I chose Michigan because it is a new program. I look forward to being part of the building process and can’ wait to see how much progress we make in the coming years. I also chose this school to attempt to join the Ross School of Business at UM.”
Outlook for your High School team? “So far our team is 8-1 on the season and looking to improve. We have an unreal starting lineup with 4 D1 commits (Austin Kreinz, Upenn; Reaves Klipstein, Army; and Will Locke, Hobart). We beat Tabor for the first time in school history in Double overtime and I was able to add 9 goals against Dexter for our schools first victory over them as well.”
Thank You: “Our Coach (Al Brown) has moulded men on and off the field for countless years. He is the best coach I have ever had and has made me the player I am today.
“Kyle Harrison has made me a better shooter than I have ever dreamed. We have been working together for a few years now and I thank him for his time and thank him for believing in me.
“My brother Alex Kelln has always pushed me to be more then my best and has always brought out the champion in me. He has pushed me mentally and physically since day 1.
“Lastly Jamie MacDonald (Denver All-American and LXM player) is the best trainer on earth. I have never seen better improvements physically and I am lucky to be working with him.”
