Why did you choose VMI? “I felt very welcomed by the coaches and players, I love the environment that Coach (Jon) Birsner has started in his time at VMI. I also loved the rich traditions and history that are found at VMI. I know that VMI is a place that I will be able to succeed and become a leader on and off the field.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We graduated a lot of talent in our 2015 class, but we have a lot of talent returning and we have a lot of young guys that are going to have to step up. We are always a contender in the WCAC and VISAA, we will have an opportunity to win a championship in both conferences.”
Thank You: “First, I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me and taking me to all the games and practices over the years. I would like to thank Coach Waters, Coach Zanellotti, Coach Mark, Coach Brooks, Coach Langley, Coach Barheight and all of the other coaches that have helped me over the years get to where I am now.”
