Why did you choose Denver? “I chose Denver for a number of reasons. I felt like Denver definitely has one of the best coaching staffs that I could play for.

While visiting the campus and talking with the coaches I just felt at home and that it was the right place for me. Colorado is also a great place to live so it will be nice to continue to be here in Colorado as I attend the University of Denver.”
