What will you major in/study? “My favorite subjects are History and Biology.”
Why did you choose the school? “UNC has been my top choice since 6th grade. After meeting the coaching staff and seeing the facilities, it was a gut feeling I just knew that UNC was the place for me. UNC just felt like home.”
What is your team’s outlook for next season? “I hope my high school team can win the North Coast Section championship. We have six committed athletes. The seniors have been role models for me so it would be great to win a championship for them in their last year. Our captains are great and have established great team chemistry early.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents, as well as all of coaches, specifically Coach Worstell and Coach French. I have been blessed with two coaches who don’t only push me as a player but to be a better person with high character. Aran Roberts (Princeton Commit) has mentored me for the last 4 years and trained me to be the best player possible. He also is a great friend. Playing against Austin French(Denver commit) and Peter Tagliaferri (Georgetown commit) has improved my one on one defense largely.”
Other schools considered? Maryland, Notre Dame, and Princeton
