Why did you choose OWU? “I chose Ohio Wesleyan for many reasons. First the team is on the rise and is quickly becoming not only a NCAC contender but a national contender as well. I wanted to be a part of a team that can compete for a National Championship in the near future and Ohio Weselyan can do that. The teams defensive style also compliments me well as a player, which also played a factor.
“Secondly the schools academic reputation is on a different level. The school has a very high acceptance rate of your first choice of graduate school. This is very important to me because I’m looking to go to medical school after college.
“Finally, I wanted to go to a school where I felt at home. Coach (Mike) Plantholt and the rest of the school really do make the campus welcoming and an exciting place to be. Delaware is a nice college town and is also very close to home.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Our team this coming year will be very strong. We are returning every key player, while only losing some roll players. Our defense was #1 in the state last year and we return everyone including our goalie. We also have many young talented players on the offensive side of the ball coming up that can contribute right away. We will be poised to make a deep run in the playoffs and to a State Championship.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents, coaches, and everyone who has helped me in my career. Their support means a lot and I couldn’t get to where I am without them.”
Other schools considered: Denison University, Wittenberg University, Washington and Lee, Kenyon College, Manhattan College
